I made a house


Sorry I've been a little too busy to to share here on my blog

Things around the farm always get a little crazy at this time of year
we have 76 baby calves born in the last 2 weeks, and about 50 more to go

The weather has finally smartened up, which means we don't have to get up 
and night and check for calves, so they don't freeze 
These days, when I am not out at the barn or corrals, I am cooking or cleaning my house
or napping 
not getting much time to play on my sewing machine

I have got a few things done this month though

I decided it was time to take down my Valentines wall hanging
but with all the snow we still have, it doesn't seem much like spring yet
so I decided I needed an "in between" wall hanging

again, a pattern from Camille Roskelly's book Simply Retro
 have I mentioned how much I love that book??

I used a mix of fabrics from Simply Style from V & Co
I knew I wanted a navy house, in the middle, 
our house is navy, so this is our house!!

I have still been working on my free motion quilting,
still practicing

and decided to go ahead and add some to this wall hanging

just a big loose wave for now, but it's a start

Thanks for stopping by
Happy Tuesday

great little houses! It's modern and a trad pattern, a nice mix. We are just starting to see daffodil shoots here in Maryland. Spring is popping.

I love your house quilt! That is from one of my favorite books, too. I can't imagine what it must be like to raise children AND calves! You must be so busy! I'm glad you got a little sewing time.
