Oh no... It has been calling and I have decided to give it a go.  After all it is only a commitment of two blocks a week for a year with a total of 111 blocks.  I am new to quilting so I figured that this will be good for me to build some skills with.

I have ordered the book and am patiently waiting for its arrival.  The ladies in the  Farmer's Wife group are into week 4, or is it 5 so I have a little catching up to do.

Some of the ladies in the group had me laughing with all their comments that perhaps they couldn't quite live up to being a Farmer's Wife....(remember 111 blocks) they may just end up being the Farmer's Girlfriend or some even a Mistress!  Being just a girlfriend sounds good to me!

"In 1922, The Farmer's Wife magazine posed this question to their readers: "If you had a daughter of marriageable age, would you, in light of your own experience, have her marry a farmer?" The magazine at that time had 750,000 subscribers, and received over 7,000 letters. The best answers to this question are included in this book, along with the traditional quilt blocks they inspired."

The book is supposed to be really interesting and I am looking forward to the reading and the sewing involved with this one.

If you have ever thought about being a Farmer's Wife ..... girl friend or just living on the land why not take a look. It is not to late to join in the fun.

Happy stitching, Sharon
