Maybe I should be Amish.........
Ok -- I haven't been doing anything worthwhile lately. It seems I have become addicted to Pandora (internet radio) and I have trouble walking away from it.
But I have had one little project. I LOVE the giant quilt blocks painted on barns. I have decided that I needed one........ so Sunday after church, I started one.
There are so many fantastic quilt patterns, it was hard to choose. But this one fit the bill -- Goose Tracks. A poultry reference so I was happy.
I need to do a little touch-up but I am out of yellow paint -- I'll pick some up tomorrow when I'm in town. I love the colors and the large graphic design.
It will go up on the barn on Thursday or Friday .... weather permitting. And since I have a potting shed and a chicken coop with expanses of blank walls...... they will get smaller blocks. I think the customers that come to the farm will appreciate them.
I founded Miss Effie's based on the history of a farm wife's work..... the veggies, flowers, making jam, hanging clothes out on the line, canning, selling eggs, knitting, spinning. Every day tasks for a farm wife at the turn of the century. And what could be more symbolic of the pieces of a farm wife's life than a quilt?
Yea ....... there will be more blocks to come.
