FWQAL Week 6, Broken Week!!!!

Hello all from the land of the sideways rain!  I have been having such a hard time with taking pictures because of the gloom!!!
This week for the Farmer's Wife Quilt-a-long I made blocks 11 and 12.  Poor Farmer's wife,  broken dishes, broken sugar bowls..
Block #11 is Broken Dishes
I think it was probably very sad for them when they broke a dish because it wasn't always easy to replace them.  And this block was good for using up the small scraps of fabric.

#12 is Broken Sugar Bowl

I like this one.  It was fun to sew.  Plus I like the blue.  

Little girl hands.  When we moved into this house in 2003, I let my youngest daughter put her handprints on the wall behind the door.  And sadly, I painted over them this week.  She moved into a bigger bedroom at Christmas and I thought it was time that I fixed her old room up for guests.  I painted it a creamy white called Malted Milk.  I have been moving out some of the things that she didn't want to keep and am deciding what furniture to use in there.
My oldest daughter is here visiting so I don't know how much time I will get to work on projects.  I don't get to see her very often so I try to spend as much time with her as possible.
Happy Crafting!!
