Farmers Wife Friday -The Spring Edition

Today definitely has the feel of Spring about it...the sun is shining, the birds are singing, my husband is out mowing the lawn, and my nose has an itch that just won't go away! Yep, Spring is definitely in the air.

A couple more Farmers Wife blocks to show you today. First up is number 15 Buzzards Roost...
...a rather strange name for a block, but it came up rather fresh and pretty, don't you think?

Number 16 is called Calico Puzzle, and I'd ask that you not look too closely at where the points meet on this one :)

I unpicked, and then unpicked some more, and got to the point where it sorta wasn't fun anymore...so I stopped and called it good. The stripes were a bit of a risky choice, but I think they look ok? Ah well, the blocks can't all be my favourites, can they!

Have an awesome weekend...ours is filled with sport and birthday parties, so I might not be around too much. I'll be out enjoying the early Spring sunshine (with my antihistamines close at hand).

that yellow polka dot fabric is awesome! what is it? and the stripes are so strong in your other block that i didn't even notice the points until you mentioned it. great job.

the stripe fabric is really cute, and your buzzard is way to sweet. Really nice.

The stripes work I think. You got them running nicely in line with the seams which is a big plus in my book.
