I've been SEW busy!!!

It's been a longa longa time between blogs again...
I've been SEW busy!!!

Here is a little of what I've been doing:

Henrietta Whiskers block 5....

and block 4!

More Farmer's Wife Blocks!!!

#61 Northern Lights

#54 Kitchen Woodbox

#87 Star Gardener

# 21 Contrary Wife

#34 Flock

#56 Maple Leaf

Now I know that I'm no where near finished my Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt using Fig Tree fabric....
The reason I was interested in the Farmer to begin with was Lori's
blog Bee In My Bonnet, and her fabulous fabric "Sew Cherry"!
So I ordered a huge stack of fabrics and I'm now going to make some blocks for a tablecloth or lap quilt or anything kitschy....these fabrics just make my heart sing!

This was Lori's block from July 18...Easy Flying Geese Tutorial.
I've made it just like Lori's because why alter perfection?!
I love the cherries on pink, gingham and little green daisies.

I also made this cute little puppy for Princess Amanda.....back in September when she went back to University....this is a pattern from Elizabeth at Creative Breathing...

and last but definitely not least....

Princess Amanda was home last weekend and she taught me how to crochet!!!
These are Oma House Slippers, Ravelry.

I really want to learn because Lori (Bee In My Bonnet) has 2 new patterns with crochet on them!  One is for pillowcases with a crocheted edge, the other is for an apron with crocheted detail!

Will the fun ever stop?
