    Kind of makes a person wonder how we get any blocks at all sewn, huh? LOL!

    Hehe!! I'll be the person that supplies the duct tape.

    This is what I'm thinking of for my first set. What do you all think?? Yes or no?

    Howdy, from my farm in Washington. Maybe I should give this a shot since I do live on a farm...

    Is this swap any type of block like pp, applique, embroidery, etc.? It's probably in your info post but I missed it. Just wondering. When I get caught up on my 'other' swaps', I will officially commit... OR, is it that 'someone will commit me?'??? RW and Mariposa: no comments, please!

    Careful Sewextreme, we push people off the fence if you are undecided or Ms. Grace twists arms and such to get you to join, so in my humble wounded opinion, with a bit of mischevious in there, you are committed now since you live in WA by me. That farm needs to be represented.

    Bugs in a jar

    I'm sure kids at the farm will be collecting all sorts of "critters" in canning jars. Here is one from my swap sets.

    OK, I want one of your bug jars! Too cute. [some times that phrase seems so trite... they are ALL so cute!]

    i think I need to have that bug in a jar as well. He is as cute as a bug. 5:00 can get here fast enough for me today. Tired of work and want to sew and play like youladies are getting to. I found a barn and tractor I think i need to do along with my cow. Also got a pig that is pretty darn cute just have to find the right fabric to make him/her. Well, back to work for the last hour.

    Now these are some real country farm blocks. Great job girl. Where did you find those center blocks? Have not seen something like that for awhile.

    Ok, I just had to go and look, now I so want to order some of those goodies. But what to do with them once I make them. I can't start another project, my UFOs aren't done. Oh such agony. Well, Ms. Grace just better make sure I get some of those bugs so I don't miss out.
