I've decided that it's the little things in life that make me happy. The first flutter of a butterfly at Spring ... the sneak of a jelly bean when the kids aren't watching ... catching perfectly spaced stitches on my needle and little 6" blocks that are the Farmer's Wife.
Today I finished my very first (cue dramatic music) HAND PIECED Farmer's Wife block, Ta Da!!!
She's a little higgly-piggly but I'm sticking with the mantra that it just adds to the hand pieced quilt charm - everyone on side? Good, I'm glad we agree.
This is block 14 and is called "Butterfly at the Crossroads" ... yer I know I didn't start at block 1 - but where's the fun in that?
The fabric is Lily Ashbury's range called High Street. I really love the fresh and vibrant colours in this range mixed with the pretty flora inspired prints.
Happy, happy, happy!
