The Farmer and I

The farmer and I sat down over the weekend and had a nice long heart to heart about our relationship.  I told him I felt like he was dragging me a long on an emotional railroad what with all these ups and downs in our relationship and the hard times we had been facing over the last two weeks or so.

He told me not to be such a sour puss and that if I would pay more attention to him instead of silly little things like scrubbing the linoleum we might have a real chance at making a go of it.

Block # 71 Puss in the Corner
Block # 55 Linoleum
 I agreed to try and by the end of the day we had decided it would be best if we did not waste our love.

Block # 30 End of Day

Block # 97 Waste Not
Most of these blocks went together with very few hitches.  Waste Not was made using the templates and overall I am happy with it.  That one point their on the left hand side could stand to be just a little sharper but I'm thinking it will correct itself since it will end up a little bit in the seam allowance anyway.  It's not as sharp as some of the ones I saw that has been paper pieced but I'm pretty happy with it.

I know this post is a few days early but it was such a cute little story I had to go ahead and share it with you all.  Hope you are having a wonderful weekend and I can't wait to see how everyone else is progressing with their farmers.
