Hi Ho The Dairy-Ho

I, for one, am not going to speculate on what drove him to seek a mistress.  And I''m not going to campaign to have "the farmer takes a mistress" included in the song.  R-rated situation, thassfersure.

Anyway, I finished three of the four remaining blocks for The Farmer's Concubine Lady Friend  Mistress and would have finished the very last one (the cheese stands alone) except when I made the kit I cut one of the components too small.  So I'll make that block when I get home and see how soon this gal (whom Honna is now calling The Farmer's Skanky Ho, believe it or not) off my wall and out to a quilter.

So we leave Chautauqua, but our vacation doesn't end quite yet.  We're off to Kent, Ohio, to visit some very important people.

Oh, you make me laugh out loud...and loudly!

TFSH? As Jimmy Buffett would say (or sing): "If we couldn't laugh then we'd all go insane!" Polly should be the quilter's National Anthem.

Y'all are too funny. The farmer may well have a harem by the time you get home!

Sounds like Honna has been watching too much "Breaking Bad" :-)))

PS The blocks look great, whoever they are named for.

Thanks for the chuckle - I'd never be able to look at that quilt without laughing! Have a great time in Ohio!

I just caught up on your project. I love Honna's name for it. I'm glad to see someone step up to the plate and say "this isn't fun" and stop. I love the Jane quilts, but many years ago my bee and I did a similar quilt, so fortunately I've been there and done that. In truth, at this point in my life, I wouldn't do it-it wouldn't be fun! Your vacation sounds lovely
...just what a vacation should be.
