Farmers Wife Friday - The Clippered Edition

Feels good to be back on track with my Farmers Wife Friday posts...routine works so well for me :)

First up we have block 44 Gentleman's Fancy...

...which I made in the same colourway as a block that I have to unpick because it has no white (who made up that stupid rule, anyhow? LOL), but this one obviously DOES have white :)

Number 49 is Honeycomb...
...which somehow just isn't really doing it for me? I kept changing fabrics and colours all morning before I finally settled on these ones, but I'm still not loving them. It would seem that I work much better with a house full of kids and not a lot of time, as opposed to a whole, quiet day stretching out before me. Go figure.

I'll leave you with this photo of my precious dog, Clancy. Poor boy was really feeling the heat this week, so I booked him in for a "short allover" style today...he's looking pretty sharp (and so much cooler!)

Gotta love a dog clipper that makes house calls :)

Yay for farming! I am missing mine and have in fact been feeling a bit off all week, because I've not done any I think. Withdrawal symptoms! I may have to review my UFO policy.

Glad you're back into your routine and marching right along.

Oh I just showed Andrew the photo of Clancy and his bottom lip went all trembly, he misses Clancy. Love your blocks, isn't it funny when I saw the honeycomb one I thought -love this, then I read what you wrote. Lol we all like different things.
And wants to know how the pool is and keep your eye on the paper next week a certain app. Chef may be in there.

Oooh, I love these blocks, esp the Honeycomb one(sorry!), your fabrics make these blocks sing!
Your Clancy is gorgeous, bet he feels a lot better now.
