Happy Friday

It has been a hectic week and I can honestly say that I am happy that Friday is here.  Not much sewing going on this week, but I did take a field trip to Jinny Beyer's Studio in Great Falls, VA.  The area has a lot of artists and there was a studio hop going on.  Jinny's shop was busy and she was cutting fabric and trying to greet visitors.  I did buy some fabric, mostly jewel tones, (sorry no picture) caught up a little with Jinny while she cut my fabric.  It was a pretty day.

I made 2 more blocks for the Farmer's Wife Quilt Sampler.  And I am enjoying this exercise.  It is requiring me to think before I cut, and to think before I sew.  I am getting a little better in trying to be more precise in the piecing of these blocks.  The fabrics that I am using are so wonderful, that I want to do them justice by making good blocks. Not perfect, cause I am not, but nice. Fall has finally arrived and I am enjoying the change.

Here are pictures of blocks #9 and #12.  I hope to get some sewing in this weekend, so I may have more to share later.

Looking good. These blocks are all the rage in blogland. Your fabric choice is different from most I have seen, but looks like it will be a real beauty. Bernie
