Farmer's Wife: Month 2 blocks (10-18)

Welcom to month 2 of the Farmer's Wife!

This month (March) the blocks to complete are 10-18. Note: The computer had the honor of choosing which direction the pictures downloaded this month...so my appologies for stiff necks!

Also, I've once again included cutting for squares and rectangles. I double checked the measurements however, please remember I am a human too!

Block 10: Bowtie
I pressed the tan points on the red squared to the red and the points on the blue squares to the tan points.

Block 11: Broken Dishes
Press to dark

Block 12: Broken Sugar Bowl 
#1 – 2 ½” square
#19 – 1 ½” square

Piece HST blocks (I pressed to dark) and then work in rows diagonally. Seams will nest if you press rows in opposite directions

Farmers Wife / CW Chronicles / Weekend Update

Happy Tuesday!
Just an FYI for those of you in the Farmers Wife Club
or the Civil War Tribute/Chronicles club

Due to the Lenten season, February and March meetings will be on Thursdays instead of Wednesdays.
Same weeks, just the following evening :)

So, I will see you all on THURSDAY evening, not tomorrow evening :)

Look what I did this weekend....
Yup...it was lots of fun :)
The special someones phone camera is pretty scratched, but you get the idea!

Have a good day!


Snaps from the retreat

So, I charged the battery on my camera up before I left for the retreat, took my camera out of the bag and put it by my sewing zone, and then proceeded to not take any pictures. Grrrrr! The poor quality pictures you're looking at are brought to you courtesy of my phone. Thank goodness it has a camera!

Some message therapy for all those stiff and sore sewing muscles!

Don't ya just love those awesome retreat games??
And of course, the Fat Quarter blackjack. I think there are ladies who come to the retreat just for this half hour span of time. They have the game down pat. They start with the minimum buy in and end with arm loads of fats!

Looks like fun, huh!?

Groovy Girls: Month 2

First off, a HUGE Thank you goes to my friend Holly Dahl who was my "substitute" on Saturday. I was in the cities at a soiree for work and she was nice enough to fill in for me. All I had to do was make the projects, set everything up and make sure things were in order. I'm sure she was an AWESOME host/teacher/presenter :)

Theme for month 2: Drawstring bags (travel time!)

Here are some shots of my display and this months projects:
and a little closer up...

the pictures are a little funny but that's what you get for forgetting your memory card on your desk at home....yet another reason I'm thankful for the inventors of smart phones :)

PS: This is an awesome pattern for drawstring bags and if you join the Groovy Girls club the pattern is yours for free!!
