Not as productive a month as I would have liked, but I got through the do-overs of all of my Farmer’s Wife Sampler blocks. I also managed to keep up with my Scrappy? Sew Bee It! Swap blocks, and did some scrap organization and free piecing.

My big goal for February had been to get the top for the Farmer’s Wife Sampler completed. I missed that goal by about 24 hours.

However, that does mean that I did complete it. Today, in fact. Actually, about 22 minutes ago.

Yeah, that would be me right about now, except I just celebrated that sort of finish with a bowl of ice cream topped with Ghiradhelli milk chocolate chips. My diet totally got thrown out the window as my inner fat kid rejoiced the completion of the top.

No pictures yet, obviously, because it’s black as pitch out there right now, and probably colder than I want to acknowledge. Tomorrow I will fling the top onto the snow, snap some fast pictures and then we shall see what we see.

Congratulations on completing the top. It doesn’t matter that it’s a little later than you wanted it to be : remember, it was a short month and you’ve had so much on.
Well done to you and looking forward to your photo of the completed top!

It would have been awesome to finish this beast last month, but honestly, I’m just glad the top’s done! I’m very much looking forward to putting this one in the completed quilt pile.
