Been Too Long

A lot has happened since the last time I blogged, a quilt retreat, a trip to Ashland to the Shakespeare Festival, and some sewing. But the biggest news is I am actually getting a sewing studio!
DS got out of the Marines, and is home and going to college. So, the extra bedroom/old sewing studio got reclaimed as a bedroom. I spent much of May packing up the sewing room. It is now being stored in the living room, and not much space to actually sew. But I have a little cutting area set up in the living room and my sewing machine set up in the kitchen.
Some progress is being made on the Farmer's Wife Sampler, 75 blocks done now, here are a few of them.

Then I also got some Civil War Diary blocks done, up to 18 now, plus a few more cut out.
And a baby quilt! Plus another one that is pieced but not quilted. So, I guess I have been busier than I remember :)

glad you are getting to sew again. Your blocks are very nice. I gave up on my Farmer's Wife for the time being, lol. I'm working on a very similiar quilt from a book called Teach Yourself Blocks from the Past. They too are 6" blocks and can be interchanged!
As hard as it was to pack things up, I'm sure that you were more than willing to give up your space for your son. Happy sewing.
