a little bit of everything, family life, gardening, and my creative adventures, and most importantly how I try to handle it all.

A farmer's wife
A farmer's wife, I am not! For we do not have acre's of land, or large amounts of animals. Although there is chicken's out in the yard, and seeds started on the windowsill.
I think I like the idea of being a farmer's wife more than I would like the reality. Especially as this past week I have spent more time with my tissue box than anyone else.
Thankyou weeping cherry tree. Your bloosms are beautiful. But you reak havoc on my sinuses!
Anyway I have decided to start a new project. A sampler quilt from : "The Farmer's Wife"
The blocks finish at 6" so it's a nice little project to work on for a while. I do have a few complaints about the book. But I will share those for another day. At this point I have 5 blocks done out of 111, so I may be at this for a while. But if you look at mine. You will see a huge difference.
They are bright and colorful. They are more representative of me, a rural/suburban wife, a happy go lucky wife,maybe today! an urban ... humm, I guess there really isn't a good classification for me and my life. Maybe that's why it's called a sampler?
