My Jane Block A10 & Farmer's Wife Block 2

Encouraging words of the day:
Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the Lord forever. ~ Psalm 23:6, NLT

We’re on our way to visit our sons in Virginia tomorrow.  I’ll be taking a little hand-sewing so I can still work on “My Jane.”  We’ll be at the beach 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 shapes on that.  Making the little-bitty points was somewhat of a challenge and has a few imperfections which add to it’s charm, hah :)

Here is  Block #2 of the “Farmer’s Wife Sampler” called “Autumn Tints.”  It is paper-pieced and the main problem I had was sewing the squares in the right place.

 And, of course, today is "Penny Haren Applique" post day.  This block is called “Bird’s Nest.”  I don’t think it looks like a bird’s nest at all.  Mine looks more like a cross.  4 more blocks to finish…

The applique of those tiny pieces would intimidate me!!! You are really moving along on them. Keep up the great work.
