Farmer's Wife Update

I was hard at work in the sewing room today.  I finished up the BSA block that I started a couple of days ago, and it will be in the mail tomorrow.  This was a specific block that Vickie requested.
I had to do a little reverse sewing, but I'm getting good at it lately.

Then I debated between working on Farmer's Wife blocks, or prepping some flimsies for quilting.  Since I'm making FW blocks for a partner, I decided they should be my first choice.




I still need to add the handles to the flower baskets, but didn't want to attempt them when I was tired.  At this rate, we'll be done in no time!  LOL!  I have a few errands to run tomorrow (today?) and then I hope to finish a few more blocks.
