Flower Garden Path-Block #36
Today's Mrs. Farmer is from Marion County, Kansas. Although I did not find her letter to be especially inspiring, there were a couple of interesting things about her that I don't remember reading in any other letters. One was her hoping that, "the privacy and seclusion will appeal to my daughter as strongly as it does to me." She likes not "attracting the attention of neighbors." The other thing was mentioning not wanting to be seen in public while expecting. "When the little ones are coming, timidity about seeing people does not keep the farm mother from walks in the fresh air and, at the last, the stork's arrival is not a neighborhood affair." My how things have changed!
Wild Rose & Square--Block #106
Perhaps her walks led her along country roads where she saw many flower gardens and wild roses. Here are my two blocks together...you can clearly see the error in size. I sure don't think that I'll be making block #36 again anytime soon!
See you Friday for another chapter and some easier blocks! Yay!
