I've been working on my stitchery blocks from the pattern "My Home or Yours" by Lynette Anderson Designs. Here is the Tropical Home. Although we have lots of palm trees in southern Nevada, the weather is anything but tropical!
I also finished the Barn block. I've been wanting to make a farmhouse or barn quilt for a long time...this little block will have to do for now. My grandmother and her two surviving sisters have an 80-acre farm in Eastern Iowa that has been designated a "Century Farm," meaning it has been in the same family for over 100 years. About 12 years ago I was able to take a trip back and see this farm that my 3rd great-grandmother left to her grandchildren...it was just neat to stand on the ground that my ancestors made a life on.
Hope you get to sew today!
