What is that?

This is "Little Bit" - a garden gnome, who, under all that snow, carries a lantern that lights the deck.  I was awake at 3:00 am,  pooh-poohing the weather people because there was barely a dusting of snow on the trees, but a few hours later, --  oh my !!!  10-12 inches.    We will be staying home and indoors today. 

A BIG "thank you" to neighbors, especially Sean, for his serious snowblowing.

The LAST of Farm Girl Vintage Blocks, and my Favorites!

I made the L A S T block, and here are some of my favorites!  I didn't want to make them - too tedious and cutesy, so saved them for last.   I am not a "cutsie" kind of gal, but I must admit ...



These are all 6 inch finished blocks.   Remember, there are also the same instructions for 12 in. blocks, plus additional suggestions and instructions for numerous other beautiful and cheerful projects.   Now, on to the sashing, then the 112 flying geese border. 
So ... if I chose just one block and made 12 of the same block  and made them in 12 in. size, they would go much faster..... mmmm
