An old wives’ tale + Ruby, the Farmer’s Wife

I woke up this morning to a beautiful sky (which is rare in Ohio during the winter):

But then the old saying, ” Red at night sailor’s delight, red in the morning sailors take warning”  came to mind and makes me wonder what this Monday has in store.  Bad weather ahead or not, you can’t deny the beauty of the sun rising about the treeline.

The first thing on my agenda for the day is an update on my progress in the Farmer’s Wife QAL being hosted by Lindsey @ Happier Than a Bird Quilts.  I’ve been having so much fun with these little paper-pieced darlings and even though I got a late start on the QAL, I’m happy to say that I’m all caught up (and even working on next week’s blocks)!  It would seem that what I’ve read is true…these blocks are addictive!

So here’s  what I accomplished since the last Farmer’s Wife post:

Block 15: Buzzard’s Roost

Block 20: Churn Dash

Block 31: Evening Star 

Block 39: Friendship

Block 58: Mother’s Dream

Block 73: Rainbow Flowers

And I’ve given my quilt-in-progress a name: “Ruby, The Farmer’s Wife” which I know is not too creative considering it just mixes the name of the fabric collection and the book, but I love old-fashioned names and I’m sure there were many a Farmer’s Wife by the name of Ruby.

Head over to see what everyone else has been working on:

Happy Monday Everyone!
