Farmers Wife Friday- The No Brainer Edition

Farmers Wife Friday almost didn't happen today. In fact, I had talked myself out of it very early in the week, knowing that my Friday was going to start at 4am, be filled with a very busy work day, and probably end with a nanna nap on the lounge chair in the afternoon :)

I was having a little private pity-party this morning, thinking about how absent crafting has been from my week, when I came to the conclusion that it really doesn't have to be that hard! A bit of cutting over breakfast, a seam or two between packing lunches, a nice easy block or two, and Farmers Wife Friday is back on track!

So I went searching for the easiest block I could find, and settled on number 92, Streak of Lightning... seam matching involved, and I chose the fabric by following my own rules :) White as the background, and a patterned fabric that I haven't used by itself before. Easy peasy.

So I went with another, number 84 Spool...

...same colour rules, but a bit of seam matching which I did less-than-perfectly. Oh well...there's plenty of time for unpicking after I have that nanna nap!

Yay! So glad you found some time for sewing. Your blocks look lovely. The white is definitely a good choice for each block.

I just completed a challenge that had me finding just twenty minutes a day to work on a project. As you discovered, a little here and a little there will lift the spirits and--especially-- get the job done! Your blocks look great. I'm enjoying seeing your progress~
