Red and White Farmer's Wife Update

Thursday, November 8, 2012

I've been farming my little heart out lately and 
I have 11 new blocks to show you 
(I know, get ready for lots of pictures).  

But first, I wonder ~ 
Why do we feel it's necessary to show a picture of each block?  

It seems a little weird.  If I make all 111 blocks then that's alot of Farmer's Wife pictures and posts!  Do any of you get tired of hearing about Farmer's Wife?  Do I dare ask? :)

 I see lots of bloggers doing it (sharing photos of each block).
And the little 6" blocks are awfully cute.
And some of them are quite the feat that it's so tempting to shout to the world, "Look what I made!"  
So I guess I'll follow the pack.  
Hopefully you don't mind???

Have I mentioned the tools I've been loving for this project lately?

Getting my FW book spiral bound has been a lifesaver (to my book and my sanity!  It only cost about $3 to do at my local UPS store).

And my little swival mat is my MOST favorite-ist thing ever.  I really, really love it.  It was SO worth the $9 or so (with a 40% off coupon) that I spent at JoAnns and it saves me a ton of time!  I use to waste so much time repositioning all those dang pieces and templates!  I love it!

Care to see my blocks?

#93 Swallow

#60 Noon & Light

#53 Jackknife

#1 Attic Windows

#39 Friendship

#108 Windmill (easiest block EVER!)

#94 Tall Pine Tree

#52 Hovering Hawks

#33 Farmer's Puzzle

#13 Buckwheat

#30 End of Day

They were all pretty simple this month so I was able to get all 9 blocks done (plus I had a couple other ones from last month that I hadn't showed you yet).  That never happens.  Usually I'm lucky to get two done!

So.  That's it for now!  Now I think it's time to take a little break from farming.  And I really mean little.  Or else I'll never finish!!!

Thanks for stopping by!
