Farmer's Wife in Your Life

I have been so busy this past week I haven't had time to post anything. Actually I haven't even done much sewing, but I have been cutting like a mad woman. I cut out ten Farming Blocks and cut out four Tokyo Subway Quilt Blocks. I'm ready for some sewing time. Can I get a witness!! :) I was able to have a very fun sewing date with a new friend that I met at the Fort Worth Modern Quilt Guild. She asked me if I wanted to join her in a blog hop for Farmer's Wife in Your Life hosted by Sunni over at  Love Affair With My Brother.  I have been doing the Farmer's Wife Quilt Along so of course I would love to do that. Sharon is blogging about it today over at Craizee Corners. She host lots of giveaways and is a triangle genius. Please pop over to her blog and have a look around.
 The challenge was to make something other than a quilt with at least one Farmer's Wife Block. She taught me how to make a zipper bag using the block. We had a really fun time and I was super excited, because I put in my first zipper. WOOT WOOT!! She was very patient and a great teacher. Thanks Sharon!
So here is a little photo action of the zipper bag process. 

Here is my cute little zipper bag!! Sharon has a tutorial for it over at her blog. Go check it out HERE.

I hope you guys are all having a wonderful day and go check out all the other wonderful projects on the hop. 


  1. Congrats on your first zipper! I avoid them as much as possible. LOL.

  2. Sweet little bag! Well done on your first zipper! I think the idea of them is much harder than the reality so nice work getting past the 'scary part'! :)

  3. Cute bag. The fabrics are wonderful! Zippers are so easy once you get the hang of them.
