Are you like me and hate to cut into a lovely piece of fabric?
I can't help think that I am going to ruin it somehow. So I have hung onto my best fabrics till my skills improve or the project really warrants it, so I tell myself. Meanwhile I sometimes take them out, give them a pat, and return them to their 'safe from my shears' box.
My Farmer's Wife book came with a CD and Hubby printed out the first ten blocks for me. What would I do without him?
The very first block honours an unknown farm woman, "Addie", which I imagine is short for Adelaide or Adeline. I love this fact because one of my great-grandmothers was Adelaide and she is the one who had very curly hair to which I owe my own curly locks.
But just look at this block; all I see are points. Eek. And it will entail the cutting of fabric.
Meanwhile, do you have Old Navy stores where you live? I don't usually shop there but Daughter was there buying back to school things for grandson so I had a look around. I found this outfit for $23; I love skirts (hide my thighs) and have trouble finding ones that have volume (to hide said thighs). This one fit the bill.
Looks comfy, heh?
