These icicles cladding my bird feeder this morning makes me wonder if I really should be out in the field or not!!
Farming and quilting really have alot in common when you think about it.
Can you tell I have had some 'time to think'?
You take a blank canvas(a field or a yard of fabric) and you add some seed(actually or creative thought) and with a little time.. before you know it you have a crop or a quilt.
They both requiring cultivating and planting, and in the end, there is a harvest(grain or a quilt).
Every now and again, there is a disaster(mother nature or a bad fabric choice)!!
|From the front......|
And from the back!!
Nothing exciting... but needs to be done!
The 'Dirt Farming' pays for the 'Fabric Farming'.
I was reading Messy Jesse's blog and she referred to her Farmer's Wife quilt blocks as her 'Farming'.
Again an interesting choice of fabrics and worth a look!!
I did manage to get a little more stitching done on my Garden Grow-ing.
Justin and I also managed to plant his 1800 gladiolas(yup.. that's no typo!) for Farmer's Market and put some seeds in the ground.
|Ready to see|
But I think we will hold off till we don't have to wear gloves to open the seed packages!!
Hoping for some rain.... Glendive's quilt show tomorrow!!
