Farm Girl Vintage

Recently InstaGram was a-buzz with a new book being published by Lori Holt and a Sew-a-Long was going to happen.
Last year there was a Christmas one which a few friends did - and I have now started  - and it was fun to see what block would be proposed each week, what new block would be added and how the quilt would go together, so I decided I would want to play along with this new one and ordered the book.  (After all if everyone is doing it I don't want to be left out....)

The book is here - the Sew-a-Long has started but I'm not doing it - but I did start on a block a few weeks ago - here.

Now I realised I haven't put the finished block on the blog.

I will probably make some more of the blocks from the book,  but the Sew-a-Long is not going to happen....

Yes, that is a ladybug crawling on my strawberry....

Tomorrow I'm going sewing - better get some "stuff" organised...what to take???...must have some hand sewing to do . . .  .and a sewing weekend coming up - I'm joining Chookyblue while she celebrates her 3rd birthday in her "Shed" - she's hosting a cyber sewing weekend...and Sunday is our regular Sunday Stitchers meeting - we need to take pink food for a "BIggest Morning Tea".

Off to search a recipe or two .  . . . - oh and find some sewing . .  .
