Smell of autumn in the air?
Encouraging words of the day:
Father God, as some receive rain, we pray for those who are still waiting. Lord, we humbly ask for relief for them as well. Please hear your children. We praise you, too, for the hope of this week's forecast which shows a break of the constant 100+ weather. We see your hand and we know that you are at work! Thank you, Lord.
Everyone talks about the weather so I won’t be doing that today. Instead, I will just say that there seems to be a smell of autumn in the air and concentrate on talking about sewing. Today being One Flower Wednesday adds a definite plus to the day. Check out the flowers other members of the group have made at the link One Flower Wednesday. Here are mine..
Here’s another of “My Jane” blocks I completed on our recent road trip. It was easy to sew and I managed not to lose any of the pieces for this block.
Here’s the Farmer’s Wife block #12 – Broken Sugar Bowl which I completed before leaving for our trip. It was also pretty easy to paper-piece. You can see that I sewed an area backwards. It’s staying that way. After all, the name of the block is Broken Sugar Bowl and that’s the way the pieces fell.
