I am working on 14 gifts for my quilt group as our next evening is our annual "Christmas in July" get together. It is an evening of wonderful food provided by selected members of the group and a fun easy project appropriate for making as Christmas gifts. Until I get these gifts made, I have to keep my other projects running at a minimum but I do have a couple of finishes to share with you later this week. It has kept me quiet on this blog as I know a number of the ladies in my group read my blogs. An elf knows how to keep a secret. *wink*
The Farmer's Daughter by Elizabeth Gardner Bougereau
*sigh* Some of you already know that I have always had a dream of having chickens but living in the middle of the suburbs I do not want the hassle of the neighbors not being happy about chickens. When I saw this painting, I knew it had to be the painting for this month's Farmer's Wife post. Can't you just hear the chickens squawking at her feet?
My blog visits have been sparse and I am missing going around visiting everyone. Things will be back to normal when my elf workshoppe closes for a little break soon. I will be back in a day or so with a finish I can show you though.....
