Lucy, Lipstick and a Lazy Sunday...........

Hey Yall!
    I hope everyone has had a nice and pleasant Sunday afternoon. It has been a beautiful day here around the farm.
 I cooked a nice dinner of ham, black eyed peas, creamed corn, potato salad (made with Klondike Gold potatoes) sliced tomatos, cornbread and ice tea. And a nice, big fat slice of pound cake for dessert. And I had great plans for after dinner......
I wanted to work on my  new Lucy Boston Block and
I wanted to give this Lass some lipstick.....

You know what they say about the best laid plans. yep, me and those Klondike Gold potatoes had a fight and they won! Egads..... This really stinks yall. I can't hold a needle. :(
But I did see a gorgeous barn and barn Quilt yesterday up in Tennessee. I knocked on the door but no one answered. I wanted to meet the person that made this. I don't think I have seen this block before.
 linking up with a really lazy Sunday  with Kathy at Slow Stitchin Sunday! Yall should see some of the gorgeous slow stitchin going on over there!
Folks, I hope yall have had an awesome week. Happy Thanksgiving to all our sweet Canadian friends! It's been a beautiful week around here in more ways than one. Even if I can't sew.
And I would love to give a very warm welcome to two of my newest friends and followers.....
Deborah at Little Ms Sew Un-sew ( yall should check out her medallion - awesome)
maureen at The jubilee Quilt Project. yall should see what she is working on there! Gorgeous!
Welcome to the farm ladies!! Feel free to grab a tractor from the sidebar yall and plow along with us!
And thank yall for all the super sweet comments on my last post. That gentleman made my day!
Now I gotta go find some Neosporin and see if I can't get this thumb well.
Watch out for those Klondike Gold Potatoes yall!

  1. I'm so sorry you are injured. I've been there only I fought the Bacon. Your projects are beautiful and will be ready for you when you are better.
    That is a cool barn block. I really need to make one.

  2. OUCH!! Your fussy cuts are so cute! and I love your little dutch girl...lips or no lips. The cows look content.

  3. Watch out for those dangerous potatoes!
    Your Lucy Boston block is going to be beautiful.

  4. Aaahh...poor baby! So sorry to see your booboo. At least you didn't get any blood on those beautiful projects. Heal quickly!!

  5. hope the finger recovers soon and you can get back to the stitching, the milk girl is lovely and some good fussy cutting in the EPP

  6. I am in love with your Lucy Boston blocks. I know you ask if anyone had any tips on fussy cutting. I'd love to know your techniques. You do a beautiful job of fussy cutting. I've never had much success with it. i'm hoping I can make the blocks using traditional hand piecing as I haven't done EPP. I am doing a Grandmother's Flower Garden with traditional hand piecing. A Lucy Boston quilt book is on my wish list for Christmas.
    The block on the side of the TN barn is unique.
    I love gold potatoes. It's understandable why that are named GOLD!
    I enjoy your blog. I follow via Bloglovin'.

  7. The fussy cutting on your block is amazing!!

  8. Oh, peeling and slicing can be very dangerous indeed! Love your projects.

  9. Sorry about your fight with the potatoes, yikes! Hope your thumb heals quickly so you can get back to stitching. I love your little Lucy Blocks, so pretty.

  10. ugh. Sorry about the finger. That can be so frustrating! Lovely barn quilt!

  11. i love barn blocks! i was just in the south and didn't see a one. sad. =( hope that finger heals soon so your lovely lass gets her lipstick on!

  12. OH dear... a stitcher with a thumb injury is a disaster! Hope it helps up quick, so you don't have to be too stitch deprived!

  13. Cool barn quilt! Too bad you didn't get to meet them. Luuuuuvvv those roses on the PP!!!!
