Blogger's Quilt Festival Fall 2011

I thought I would share my Walk in the Park quilt for the Blogger's Quilt Festival! If you are interested in making the quilt I shared a tutorial for it a few months back. It's made with the lovely Central Park fabric from Kate Spain. If you make it, I'd love to see it!
Don't you just love browsing the festival, enjoy!

Back to the Farm

I would love to live on a farm. At least the idea of a farm. Lots of land, fresh air, fresh eggs and most of all a farmhouse with a huge wrap around porch. Aaahhh. I know the reality means a lot of hard work but it's still fun to have that dream. 
  I have really enjoyed reading the stories of real farmer's wives in the Farmer's Wife Quilt-A-Long book. It doesn't do much to cure me of the desire to spend my days on the farm though, quite the contrary. But at least I can make my blocks while I daydream. It feels good to be back in the saddle again after our move and school starting up with all of our new crazy schedules! Here are my blocks for this week:
I used a strawberry lemonade theme. Pink and yellow together are scrumptious! I might have to use this combo more often.
Our house is coming together little by little. I put up the Halloween decorations yesterday. Though it's funny, they all fit my old house perfectly. But in our new home I just don't have a place for everything. I think it's time to do a holiday purge and start fresh. My husband didn't just hear me say that, did he?
