So much sewing, and not enough time for blogging. Or sleeping!

As I've mentioned before, my younger sister takes all my nice photos for me, as she has a nice camera and more patience. So every couple weeks I gather up everything I've made and head on over to my parents' house. I eat all their food and generally remind them how nice it is to only have one child left at home [there are 3 of us total].

My family has a beautiful backyard, with many great spots to use for picture-taking, but here's Robyn, working so hard to deliver the kind of photo I asked for. She was so busy contorting her body to hold pillows at the angle she wanted that she didn't even notice me taking a picture of my own :)

And on a related note....

My first Farmer's Wife block! I bought the book a couple months ago with the intention of enjoying the letters and blocks, not necessarily of joining the quilt-along. However. People's blocks are so pretty! I especially love Angela's over at Fussy Cut! I don't have time to make these blocks for fun right now, but I wanted to give it a whirl, so I printed out the templates for #18, Century of Progress, which is one of my favorites.

My first time making anything with a template, and you can see my center points don't match up exactly, but I am ecstatic about the colors. I also added the borders to make it an 8" square. I'm going to add a button and turn this into a hotpad, but I also think I'll make another one just like this and make it into a pillow, because these are the colors of the university right down the road. Hopefully that will appeal to some college students at my craft fair!

Happy weekend, everyone!
