Farmer's Wife Friday Link Up (and my girls:)

I have had the busy excuse a lot in the past couple of weeks. Summer officially began for us last Friday, but this week has been crazy! In all the best ways of course.
 Charlotte had two weeks of swim lessons and LOVED it! She went from never having swum without wearing her swim jacket to swimming the length of the pool and being the champion diver of the class! It was so fun to see her progress and she is so excited to go swim!
 We also had three dance recitals in two days! Yes, the joys of being a dance mom. ;) Charlotte was in her first recital dancing to "Singin' in the Rain". Maggie had a beautiful ballet performance and her first jazz performance. I didn't get the best pictures of the actual performances, but loved this jump shot I got of Maggie catching air, wooo hoo!
 They both did such a great job. Maggie just LOVES being onstage and lights up with a huge smile when she's there. Charlotte was a little more solemn and very technical, but that will certainly pay off in the future.


So instead of new Farmer's Wife blocks, I thought I would a couple of mosaics with most of the blocks I've already made! This gives a good idea to how the quilt itself will look.Wow, right? It also helps me see which colors I need to bring out more. I'm thinking more blue!
Want to make one too? Just go to www.bighugelabs.com and click on Mosaic Maker. It's super easy! 
Have you been able to make any blocks this summer? Show us! Here's how to link up:

1. Link up any post or picture from the past week that features your Farmer's Wife quilt progress.
2. 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).
3.
Have fun reading all the posts! Don't forget, everyone loves a nice comment! 

I am so looking forward to going out of town next week and not having ANY schedule, that's what summer means to me! Have fun!

Hi Ellie. Just a quick question. I have made a mosaic using Flickr photos. Do I always have to upload to Flickr first or can I grab photos from anywhere? Hoping to link up this Friday ; )
