Yesterday's mail brought a lovely surprise - Happy Mail from my Dear Jane Secret Pal. She splurged and sent me "The Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt" book by Laurie Aaron Hird. It comes with a CD of the patterns, too! Wow. Thank you SP.

I learned of a FWS QAL on Pat's blog using this beautiful book. This promises to be fun. I doubt I will make the whole quilt, but a  WH would be nice.

That's all for today. Thank you for dropping in for a visit. I hope wherever you are that you have time  and space to create something you love.

Quilty hugs,
PS... as an experiment I have removed the "prove you're not a robot letter thingie"... If I don't get a lot of spam, I will leave it off. It certainly will be easier to leave a comment w/out having to type those horrid letters that none of us can read anyway. lol

What a wonderful surprise! I can't wait to see the great blocks you'll create with the patterns! Thanks for removing the verification, it is sure a pain with the 2 words now. I have had it off for quite sometime and it has been fine.
