new blog, new resolve

My mother-in-law and I recently began sewing blocks from the Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt, and my attachment to sewing and creating got a new lease on life.  My husband and I live in a tiny apartment (425 square feet tiny), and we only have one proportionately tiny table, so my first blocks were actually cut on the kitchen floor and sewn standing up at the kitchen counter!  Here are the first three:

"Friendship," block #39

"Mother's Dream," block #58

"Broken Dishes," block #11


  1. I meant I have the same sheet used in "Broken Dishes".
    My favorite block so far is "Mother's Dream".
    I love seeing your work!!
    Thanks for sharing!

  2. Mom, that sheet was one of the reasons I fell in love with vintage sheets!
