On the originel pattern they used little yellow buttons

Instead of framing it I have turn it into a tree and I realy like how it turns out

The farmer's wife sampler quilt

As you maybe know beside cross stitch I love to quilt.
For my birthday (which is november 2th) I already orderd some cross stitch patterns and threads, but they still didn't arrived.
My quiltbook that I also orderd arrived today and I realy love it.

This quiltbook is just on the market and its called:
The Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt


Inspired by the 1922 Farmer's wife contest, Laurie Aaron Hird created the Farmer's Wife Quilt, a queen sized sampler quilt with 111 traditional farm themed blocks.

In 1922, The Farmer's wife magazine posed this question to their readers:
"If you had a daughter of marriageable age, would you have her marry a farmer?"

The magazine recieved over 7.000 letters.
The best answers to this question are included in this book,
along with the traditional quiltblocks they inspired.

Include is a cd with easy-to-print, full sized templates for al 111 blocks.


I'm not starting with this quilt because I have several others that I want to finish first, such as the Civil War Diary Quilt, the Dear Jane quilt, my Fairy Sweet quilt which I designed myself and a few others which I'm working on.

Boy oh boy .... I need more time in a day !

Let it snow !!!

The last few days I have stitched a design from Country Cottage needleworks.
Its called Let it snow and I stitched it on 28 ct Jobelan.
I have to think about how to finish it into an ornament.



Today I went to the hospital to talk with my doctor about the historectomy they want to do. On 22 oct. I must see the one who is doing the narcosis and then I hope to hear when the surgery is.
