1-Flower Wednesday, Jane F1 and FW 9


Encouraging words of the day:
Continuing with my favorite Psalm 91
 11 For he will order his angels
      to protect you wherever you go.
 12 They will hold you up with their hands
      so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone.
 13 You will trample upon lions and cobras;
      you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet!. – Psalm 91 NLT


It’s One Flower Wednesday!   I love this day and sewing up hexie flowers. 

This is Post #92 for me.  I started blogging on October 4th, a year ago so I have a Blogiversary coming up.  That means my 100th post and my Blogiversary will be at about the same time so I’m working on a giveaway for my blog followers soon.

The saga of  “My Jane” continues.  I love it but not  “My Farmer’s Daughter“  and I don’t know why.   I know, I know I keep saying that.  I hate to quit something once I start so I may be one of those that has “The Farmer’s Wife” as a life-long project.  Here’s “My Jane”  F-1.  
F-1
 
Here’s the Farmer’s Wife block I sewed upside down and backwards and then unsewed and resewed it wrong again,  took apart again and finally got this:

FW 9 - Box

Giveaways I’ve found:
"Love Affair With My Brother" is giving away a jelly roll. – ends August 29th.

Never Enough Stash” is having a giveaway of a chart, several skeins of floss,  and “some other really cool stuff."  - ends August 23rd.

Man, I’m boring today.
That is all.

Very pretty flowers!
I think your blocks, both Jane and Farmer's are turning out quite nicely. I've not yet started the Farmer's Wife blocks, but just recently did order the templates from Marti Michell's website. Have you checked into those?

Nice looking flowers.Your Dear Jane blocks are getting better each day. I got a problem with my FW blocks but I'm going to start all over again.
Thanks for entering my giveaway.

Very pretty flowers to add to your garden. Your other projects are great! I've always wanted to do Farmer's Wife.

Wonderful flowers again this week! I especially like the one on the left as it reminds me of some of my Uncle's polished agates.
The MJ block is very pretty with the tiny little dot fabric.
Maybe you should stop the FW blocks for awhile - you seem to be fighting them since you had to take the block apart twice. Just a though.

Your flowers are always so nice ... your other blocks too. I have been at it a year but fall way short in posts. Good job gal!

Lovely flowers, your Dear Jane is coming along nicely. Makes me think I should get at mine again. I also like your "My Jane Progress" on the right side.
