Farmer's Wife has begun!

It has been a while since I sat in my sewing room and cranked out blocks. I worked on some Farmer's Wife blocks today. I had done one with Ellen a week or so ago. I think Ellen and I are going to have our work cut out for us, to keep up with Yvette!

The first block we did was an easy snowball.... Here is mine...

The second was not hard - although my mad photography skillz make it look WAY more wonky than it is in reality.

But this third one.... Well, it totally dispelled the theory I had that perhaps Farmer's Wife was going to be a little easier than Sylvia's Bridal. Wrong!

At one point, I had a complete set of the paper pieces cut out and assembled, and another set with seam allowances that I was using to actually construct the block. In a weird way, it helped me keep track of all 4,592 pieces!

Okay, it's technically Monday. I'm off to bed!

Your blocks look wonderful, especially that last one. I did that one over twice because my first attempt didn't work, so I paper pieced the second one. Am looking forward to seeing more of your blocks.
