My Jane A 11 and My Farmer's Wife 3

Encouraging words of the day:
You thrill me, Lord, with all you have done for me! I sing for joy because of what you have done. ~ Psalm 92:4, NLT
I won these cool Patriotic Squares from Rachel at "Just So Ya'll Know."   I had her mail them to my address in the Hill Country.  I hardly ever get mail there so it was quite wonderful actually receiving a surprise there.  There are blocks of all sizes from Layer Cake size to little 4 inch squares. Thanks, Rachel. 

We’re now visiting our sons in Virginia.  I’ve brought along a little hand-sewing so I can still work on “My Jane.”  We’ll be at the beach next week so I probably won’t get much sewing done.  It’s all good.
Speaking of “My Jane,” here’s my latest block. I paper-pieced the background and then appliquéd the little squares in the corners. 

Here is  Block #2 of the “Farmer’s Wife Sampler” called “Joanie’s Basket.”  It has a paper-pieced background with the handle appliqué.

Today is One Flower Wednesday!  Lately, about all I’m sewing are the hexie flowers due on One-Flower Wednesday since I’ve been working on “My Jane” and “My Farmer’s Wife.”  Thanks, Karen for keeping us sewing hexie flowers with the One-Flower Wednesday plan.

Giveaways I've run into:
"1 Choice 4 Quilting" is giving away an Amelia jelly roll, an Amelia layer cake, and a Hometown by Sweetwater jelly roll. – ends July 25th.

That is all.
