Holy Goodness, May is Half Over!

The spring is just flying by!  I've been too busy to post but here's a little current sewing mania!
Here is the current progress on the Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt.  I'm trying to stay on track with two blocks a week but I'll admit, I'm slightly behind!  My goal is to finish this one before school starts back in August.  If you aren't farming and you feel compelled to, do it.  I don't really even like sampler quilts but this has been an amazing skill builder for me.  I'm a MUCH better quilter for having done this.  This is the 64 block mark!  I have 47 to go!

Also, on the table is a quilt top waiting for me to make the back and quilt it for a charity auction. It's made entirely of the reprinted Flea Market Fancy fabric cut into triangles!  I must say, I've struggled a little with the bias-y triangles but in the end, it's going to be fine.

I've also spent some time playing with random placement of half-square triangles on the placemats below.  I made the triangles and just started putting them together with little to no thought.  I really love how these placemats came together.  They are a wedding present!

And even though this picture is crooked and dark and hideous, these new matryoshka dolls are adorable!  This quilt is being made for a very special little girl!  Hopefully, it will be done this week!  I'll post finished pics.

AND....the big news is that my Little Red and Her Big Bad Quilt sold in my etsy shop!!!!  Now I can never say again that I've never sold anything!  I'm so blessed on this Mother's Day.  My family is a huge blessing in my life.  My mom is incredible!  My mother-in-law is wonderful!  And my step-mother is amazing!  AND...I have the two most wonderful children ever.  These people keep me going and I thank God for all of them.
