Sundays are for catching up and naps....

Saturday, I attended Primitives of the Midwest at Quilters Station here in Lee's Summit, MO.  In the class with Lynda Hall, we made a charming primitive doll.  It was a fun little class, and I hope to have my youngin done sometime this week.  She still needs a face and a name....I'm thinking maybe Penelope.

This afternoon, I was able to add three more Farmers Wife blocks, Bouquet,  Country Farm, and Hovering Birds. 

And I am playing catch-up with the Civil War Blocks....this week's went together fairly easy.  If I were to make it again, I would use flying geese units for the star points and reduce some of the bulky seam intersections. 

Thank you for all your wonderful additions to my previous post...I have added them to my journal.
Here are what some of my fellow bloggers have added:

Relax, laugh and love.
Laugh hard and often.
Look at the stars, listen to the trees and smell the fresh air.
Smile at others.  Hold hands.  Laugh a lot.
Share good memories.
Sing with abandon.
Life is too short, take a chance now and then.
Look for the joy in every day things and everyday events.
Thank someone everyday.
Perform random acts of kindness.

and one more that I would end with....
perhaps the best way to apply the philosophy  of God's goodness
 is to constatantly live a thankful life.

Your Youngin' is as cute as she can be...I like Penelope...I'm over the top crazy about your FW blocks this week...Bouquet is next on my list!

All your blocks look wonderful. I am so jealous you got to attend Primitives...I have heard so much about it.

Your blocks are beautiful. I have ordered the book, but we had a postal strike (just ended) here in Canada, so I hope to receive it soon. The fabric you are using is lovely.

Oh you got to take a class with Lynda! That looks like so much fun! I would love to go to Primitives of the MW sometime. And the blocks are great!

Your dolls are adorable. I wished I could have been there with you! Looks as though you all had a great time.

I have a new computer and I am still at this stage ?/#!?????? so am learning how to all over again! I think I will relax by sewing and work on the computer later! :(((((

Hugs to you!

I wish I'd let my doll be distressed. she really is a little too white. And also still faceless. Too many other things to do now I am back home. (It was great to meet you too.) Karmen
