I got a present!

Hi everyone! Well Monday is over for all intents and purposes but I had to blog about a present I got from my friend, Camille! She sent me the Farm Girls Vintage book by Lori Holt! She apparently won one in a giveaway but had already bought it. I am so excited! Thank you SO much Camille! I made 2 quick blocks from the book yesterday. They are cute and easy. First, I made the strawberry block:



and then I made the baby chick block:



I still have to embroider the little feet. There are so many cute blocks and cute projects in this book! And, on May 1st, Lori is starting a Farm Girls Quilt Along. I'm sure it will be adorable. You remember her Row Along quilt that started all of her book publishing. So that's all the news I have. I'm still working on quilting a piece to list on eBay and Etsy. I started out doing the background quilting too small and now it's taking forever.  Hope your Monday has been great! XO from Bev
