Farmers Wife # 6 April

After making the nine mini blocks for April, I had to check that I had made them correctly. I had, but when they were placed together it just didn't look right. I thought about changing the corner blocks, but decided to leave them, but I would not make the same block the same way again. I used my own templates and hand pieced this block.
As you can see it was another block with so many pieces - 53 pieces to be exact.
You can see how small the corner blocks were with the small needle beside it.
You can find GnomeAngel tutorial here.

My thoughts on the letter 'And Beets in a Jar'
by But-after-all, 1933.
But-after-all writes about leaving the home to go to work and as she looks around the home she is happy with the sights and smells - her mother canning beets. She is obviously happier working in the home rather than an office.
I must admit there was a time when I was happy at work and really enjoyed being there, but that was a few years ago. I am much happier now working at home and having 'me' time. "Me' time is very important for all of us.

The magic thing about home is that it feels good to leave and it feels even better to come back.
