Farm Girl Friday - Week 7!

Today of course it is Friday and that means it is time for the next Farm Girl Vintage Sew-a-long blocks.



It is week seven of the sew-a-long and the blocks this week are the 'Crops Block' and the 'Egg Basket Block'. I have my fabrics all cut out ready to complete the blocks over the next few days.  If you want to have a look at some finished blocks for inspiration, you can visit the sites listed on The Fat Quarter Shop's Farm Girl Vintage Schedule.  This week's blogs on the schedule are Nana Company for the Crops Block and Pink Pincushion for the Egg Basket Block.  There are some lovely blocks and ideas to look at!



I would have finished my blocks to show you if I hadn't decided to crochet a couple more owls. Since my last post when I showed you some crocheted owls I had made, one for my daughter and the other for a friend of my son, I realised that the mini owl that I made was not as mini as the owl pictured above which I made last year.  This was the size of owl that my daughter wanted so, I decided I would make another one and here it is....



It is now on its way to my daughter.  While I had my crochet hooks out I also made one for my niece and that is also in the post.  I hope they will like them!

  7. I really like those little owls, the beautiful colours make them much more fun somehow and perfect for little hands!
    I made a bundle of 3-4" owls using left over scraps from felted woolly jumpers and used crochet lace doilies ( chopped up! I know, unforgiveable lol) for wings as xmas tree decs.
    I enjoyed making them but I used brown and creams, never though to use fun colours!
    Love the idea of making 2 FW blocks each week but I'm appalling at sticking to self disciplined routine! I'm 2 months behind on the Millefiori rosettes. Jolly good job they weren't for a commission!
    I am however, 'voyeuring' your progress lol (that spelling doesn't look right!)

    1. Hello Lyn! Your owls sound lovely too. I always like to hear of projects made by recycling or upcycling other things! Good luck with the rosettes and I hope I can keep up with the Farm Girl blocks.... so far, so good! :) x
