Farmer's Wife Check In: Week 17

block #48 Homeward Bound

block #46 Hill & Valley
 I am thoroughly enjoying the routine of this quilt along.  The blocks are always interesting and the size of the pile of blocks is getting significant.  I have a routine of making my weekly blocks before I tackle any other sewing each weekend.  It is most satisfying.  Again these blocks are scrappy with various bits and pieces.  So much fun!

Last yellow roses of summer
Fall is almost here.  The trees will be turning and the garden will need to be put to sleep.  The roses are putting on their last big display.  I adore the glossy green-ness of the leaves on this particular rose which climbs to over 8 feet in height.

The Giveaway is open until Friday evening.  Enter if you like!
