hello friends!

I wasn't sure I'd be able to post at all, but here is a really quick one to share this week's progress on Farmer's Wife.


It's been busy, but I look forward to slowing down this weekend. I need to recharge my batteries and look forward to a bit of hand-quiling.

Sending you my love,


  1. Upclose they look even better!!! Love the one with the big flower in the middle! Have a great time my friend and take care! XXXD Happy quilting!

  2. Hi Valentina! Wow, you're really speeding along on the Farmer's Wife .. how's your Jane coming along. I am mortified to admit that I discovered an envelope addressed to you on my desk! It's still here ... but now it's not buried under a stack of "stuff."

  3. The blocks are lovely!!
    Our weather is cooling down and it is perfect for hand quilting. Enjoy your weekend.

  4. Zes stuks dat is best veel, zo loop je hard in met ons.
    Het zijn weer stuk voor stuk leuke blokjes.
    De quilt in wording ziet er ook heel mooi uit.
    Simpel patroon, vind dat altijd heel mooi.

My Patchwork Family Through Adoption

A Bit of Africa and China
Came knocking on our door
And in a home where there was longing
Now empty rooms no more

Like a Quilt of Many Colours
Our Family stitched together into One
God's Love and Grace for us Abundant
In the Miracle of our Sons
