Farmers Wife Friday

It's a fact. There simply aren't enough hours in the day to get everything done that you want (or need) to get done :)

It's also a fact that you have to make time to do the stuff that you love...even if it means NOT doing stuff that really should be done, like laundry :)

And that is what Farmers Wife Friday is all about...taking a little bit of time each week to play with yummy fabric and cute little blocks. Am I making a queen size quilt like the one in the book...who knows? Will I have enough fabric in my jelly roll to make all the blocks...who cares? Will all the colours eventually gel together? No idea :)

Because you know what? It's really not about the finished quilt at all, for me. It's all about piecing a couple of little 6 inch blocks every now and then. Just for fun. And my colour choices are made, just because I like the look of them together...not based on some grand plan for my finished quilt.
This weeks blocks are called Bat Wing and Big Dipper, and are numbers 5 and 6 in the Farmers Wife Sampler Quilt book. Cute, huh?

Glad to see you have got your priorities right! Life is no fun if you don't get to play with fabric on a regular basis.

Your blocks all look so sweet.

It really is about the process,isn't it? Put the kids to work on that laundry-- mommy needs her playtime too!
