More Little Stuff

 I finished the second part of Lori's (Humble Quilts) little doll quilt. The pink hourglass blocks have been replaced with blue ones which I like much better.

 A couple of years ago, I started the Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt. After about a dozen blocks, it was put on the back burner. Our Civil War group at the shop has decided to work on this quilt at our monthly meetings. It's not a civil war quilt, but lots of us are using civil war fabrics. We were each given two blocks to do for the first meeting. Mine were 23 and 98. They will finish at 6 inches.


I finally found a frame that fit the little 5" house sampler that I cross stitched back in 2007. I could have bought one, but it's more fun to find one at the thrift store or a garage sale.

At Christmas time, I finished the little sheep and Santa ornaments for my grand children's money gift. Last week I did three more. These are like envelopes in the back so you can include money or a gift card. Just need to finish the snowman before December.

Yesterday I took a class to make a Mondo Bag. I didn't quite finish it, but it was a fun bag to make. Photo soon, I hope.

You have a very cute Abundance block... love the gold/white checked fabric! Very nice Farmer's Wife blocks... have the book, but only 4 blocks completed. How sad! You are smart to be working on Christmas items already!
