FWQAL continued + some simple embroidery

I have two projects to share with you today.
First, let me show you 4 more finished blocks for the Farmer's wife QAL.

Block #109 Windows

Block # 111 Wrench

Block # 108 Windmill

Block # 92 Streak of Lightning

And here's the picture of the 8 blocks I've finished so far.

Are you also participating in FWQAL? Leave me a comment, I'd love to see your blocks.

Another project I've been working on is doing simple embroidery. I needed something I could take with me to  park or to my kids swimming lessons, so this is what I came up with.

I decided to use running stitch around each leaf and flower to give it some texture.

I also used french know for the inside of the flowers.

I'm almost done with the whole piece of fabric. I think I'll make it into a pouch after all the embroidery is done. Hopefully I'll have my pouch ready to show you soon.



  1. Love the fabrics for your Farmer's Wife blocks...so pretty! Your stitching is adding so much to the fabric, especially the french knots!


  2. If my book ever arrives, I'm so in the FWQAL! seriously, could Amazon take any longer?! Gaah!
    LOVE your blocks thus far... just using scraps? Any particular way you choose the fabrics? I'm trying to decide what fabrics to use, and i'm getting no where. I'm thinking random scraps, period. No thinking, just sewing.

  3. I am really looking forward to seeing your blocks after your book arrives. As for fabric, I try to use white in each block and I will probably just stick with patterns in red, blue, yellow, and green. My daughter seems to like it this way, and it's going to be her quilt.

  4. Your FWQAL blocks are wonderful. I am going to start this week.
