Treasured gift and Farmer's Wife blocks

My blog continues to be a mess, but I will just continue with it as is, I guess, because I haven't a clue what to do about the problems.

I just have to show you the sweet mouse pad our granddaughter made for me at school. We make candy cane cookies together, and this is her depiction of the cookies and my kitchen. She has it pretty accurately done, and note the butter, sugar, flour and eggs that she has sitting on the island counter. The mixer we use is sitting on another counter, and she shows our refrigerator, pantry door and stove.
The next two pictures are my Farmer's Wife blocks.  I am really enjoying making these.  My friend and I got together on Monday and sewed, and I have continued to work on them since then.
My sister and her husband and my niece and her husband and their sweet baby visited for a couple days this week, and we enjoyed their visit so much. What a treat to have them. Our kids and their families were here for dinner and the evening. This is a picture of hubby and I, our DGC, and my darling great-nephew. The baby was such a hit and the three older kids just wanted to be close to him.


  1. You are making wonderful progress on the Farmer's Wife quilt. I'm loving the look of your blocks. Glad you got some quality family time in this week as well. And you have to be proud of that budding young artist! Such good memories for her.

  2. Wow! Look at you go on those blocks! I love them. What a cute mouse pad! And great group pic!

  3. The mouse pad is definitely a keeper! Looks like she has some of Grandma's artistic talent. Love the Farmer's wife blocks!

  4. I just love your mousepad, Donna...truly a gift to be treasured! Your Farmer's Wife blocks look great!

  5. The mouse pad is a great sign your granddaughter loves the quality time you spend together.

    I asked my SIL if she could order the Farmer's Wife book for me. It's sold out on Amazon at the moment so don't know when I'll get it. I like your color choices, mine will be mostly scrappy as I don't have much stash and fabric prices have gone over the top here since the downturn of the economy.

    You are so lucky to have such a nice and loving family to spend time with.
