Friday...Friday...Farmer's Wife Fri-day

(sorry is it stuck in your head now?) Man, did this week fly by! Probably because my girl's had Monday off of school and it always takes a few days to decompress from a vacation. I feel like my week's just getting started! In fact today I finally took my sewing machine out of its traveling cover to get some sewing done. BUT...I discovered that I had left my power cord at my parents house in Utah! Urg! I literally cried. Literally. I have a big pile of fun projects to sew up and no machine to do it with. My mom is shipping it to me tomorrow but it might not be here until Monday! And we are leaving on our second Spring Break on Sunday, so I guess I need to find some hand sewing projects to take with me.
While I was in Utah I was able to make one block. Actually I made it when I made last week's blocks. It's a good thing I did so I would have something to share today! This was one of those blocks I was excited to make. I tried it with a few different fabrics, but I also love using the polka dots and this blocks seemed to lend itself well to them. I also had to add some flowers to suit the name. Needless to say I love the result, you just can't go wrong with polka dots and florals.

Since I couldn't actually sew, I did cut out a few more blocks so I would be ahead of schedule for next week. My goal is to make at least two blocks a week and so far I have done that. I would love to make more than that, but with all the other projects I have, two seems to work for me right now.

Can't wait to see what blocks you have been working on, now's your chance to link up with me!

What you need to do is:
  • Use the linky tool and link your blog posts or flickr pictures of Farmer's Wife blocks.
  • You must LINK back to this post within your post. You can also grab a Farmer's Wife Friday button (on the right side bar).
  • Have fun reading all the posts! Don't forget, everyone loves a nice comment! 

 Oh about our "second" Spring Break. Our kids have their spring break's on different weeks. The girls and I headed to Utah last week for their spring break. For my son's spring break we are all headed to Sedona, AZ! This is one of our favorite places and my in-laws generously invited us to come spend their vacation with them. So we get two spring breaks! Very excited. Just not looking forward to doing all that laundry again. :)

Ugh, I'll bet you are sad not to have your cord. I know I would be.

I just stumbled across your blog today. Love your Farmer's Wife Friday and I think I'm going to join in. I've been working on the Farmer's wife quilt for about a year now and need some inspiration to keep going. :)
