I'm still here and still plugging away at my Farmer's Wife blocks.
I counted today and I'm about one-third of the way finished
(insert a very weak woo-hoo right here).
Here are my newest blocks:
#25 Cups and Saucers
# 15 Buzzards Roost
#31 Evening Star
#35 Flower Basket
#11 Broken Dishes
I guess you learn a lot about yourself when making a quilt of this magnitude.
First, I am not the most patient person in the world
(yeah, I probably already knew that).
Second, I do not unpick
(ok, once in a great while do I unpick. Only if it's completely necessary.)
Third, I will not make a block over again (even if I don't care for it).
Fourth, I'm indecisive.
(Maybe I shouldn't have done red and white???)
Fifth, I am a finisher! Woo-hoo!
(I will make all 111 blocks!)
And even though I get a little discouraged when I realize how much more I have to go on this quilt, I do enjoy making the blocks. They're cute and some are challenging. So just ignore my little whining session today. I just had to vent and probably just need to go work on something else for a while (I have about 5 other projects I'm working on right now).
I know this little pile will continue to grow and grow (and grow).
Even if it kills me.
Which, today, I think it might.
