Two More Farmer's Wife Blocks

Yesterday for sewing was a complete nothing. Pat needed to go to the doctor and Amy and Cooper were visiting as well.

But today was a different story. It did take me until after lunch to get myself into some sort of sewing mode.

Between Pa's visit and now Pat becoming sick again, I am needing to recharge my batteries somehow.

Before tea tonight I had drawn and cut out the templates on fabric. Spent a relaxing evening sewing and gosh the time just seemed to fly past. I can't get over the time 10.28, last time I heard our clock chime it was 9 pm.

Before I actually started sewing I spent about 20 mins outside under the veranda watching the wind blow and the small amount of rain we had blow past myself and my rabbit "Buddy".

I love block 3 and its my very first attempt at a basket block. This one so far has to be my favourite.

Block 3 "Basket"

Block 4 "Basket Weave"

Block 4 was so easy to make. So far the blocks have been simple to make, but I am sure there will be some that will have me pulling my hair out....hehehe
