Farmhouse Newsletter

Dear Quilting Friends


Hope everyone has had a wonderful summer (fall the last week).  I bet a lot of you have gardened and canned a lot. Summer is not over yet so we still have a lot we can do in the sunshine. Do any of you have hand projects you have worked with outside? I used to do a lot of English paper piecing in the summer so I could enjoy the outside and the porch.   We have been doing a lot of sewing at the farmhouse this summer and we have really enjoyed the teachers who have gotten to be with us. We will really miss them when school starts back.


The Scrappy Stars class was really fun and the Disappearing Pinwheel. Everyone loved making the Twice as Nice since they end up with 3 baby quilts! Trees for Sale was also a big hit for the ones still wanting to take it. If you missed either of these classes and want to take them just email me and we will get the class back up.
