Farmer's Wife and Eggs
I also looked over the rest of the blocks and my list of PIP (Projects in Progress) and talked with Joe and made a momentous decision: We don't need the full 111-block queen-size version of The Farmer's Wife. There are other options in the back of the book, and the one that I'm going to go with is the lap size version, which calls for 55 blocks. Once I receive my yield from Pat, Sherron and Cecelia, I'll be just five blocks shy of that number. So I'm going to set Mrs. Farmer aside until those blocks come in, and think about finishing the project another day. I'm pleased with most of the blocks that I've made so far. But I'm eager to return to some of the other things that were in the works before The Farmer's Wife showed up.
On Friday, the theatre teacher came into my office bearing gifts. Her girls were producing fresh eggs more quickly than she could consume them. So she shared. Wasn't that nice? And aren't they gorgeous? She said that they tasted better than "regular" eggs, too. She was right.
