There was a heavy frost this morning, and snow could be here at any time.  I don't like the cold, but I am however, looking forward to long winter evenings of sewing and knitting by the fire.  This week I did quite a bit of piecing.

First up block #7 of the farmers wife quilt along: birds in the air

In order to make a queen or king sized quilt set on point, you have to repeat some of the blocks.  This will NOT be one of them.  Those little darlings are fiddly.  I am still liking that background though.

I have 26 of these blocks made.  Over half way.

They are going faster all the time.

Remember the package I sent to Germany? Well, it got there in one piece and if you care to read about it, you can go here.  Her enthusiasm is contagious and rather funny.

Have a great week-end.
