Farmer's Wife Week 19

Happy Friday the 13th.  I heard on the news this morning that we will have 3 of these this year.  Fun!!!
On Ravelry, if you type Friday the 13th, a scary little mask comes up.

I've made a few more Farmer's Wife blocks.

First I have, #37 Flower Pot

Sorry for the shadows on the pictures.  I was super snowy out and even editing didn't help much!!
This block was pretty easy.  It's not one of my favorites though.  I tend to like the star type blocks better.

And then #38 Four Winds

Ok, I didn't count how many pieces were in this block.  I don't think I want to know.  It took quite a bit of time to make.  Not hard, just a bunch of pieces!!  I did run out of my white and cream flower fabric so I just substituted another red.  And I think it should have used a different color for the inner part but there is no way I am tearing this out or making it again.  ha

I am still on the cutting part of my Swoon blocks.  I can't wait to start on the sewing!
Maybe today?

Hamburgers? Anyone?
We plan on grilling this weekend (unless it is too cold for the grill to work) so this will have to be dug out.  We got about 6 more inches after I took this picture.  I can't complain too much when Cordova has 18 feet and Valdez has 26.  I will take mine, thank you!!
Happy Crafting!!!


  1. Your FW blocks are looking great! And the prospect of shoveling snow to grill, that's determination :)
