Country Girl Through & Through
I'm a country girl from the western part of Virginia in a small community of New Castle/Craig County. I've lived in Craig all my life-eighteen years with my parents and siblings and forty + years with my wonderful husband.
We have two children, a boy and a girl, and two grandchildren, all of which we love very much. We live on a 500 acre+ farm that has been in my husbands family for over 200 years. We are raising beef cattle, chickens, rabbits and a couple dogs.. We grow pretty much all we eat or harvest from the farm and I can't imagine living anywhere else.
I love to create, craft, quilt, read, write, decorate, crochet, candlewick, bake, bow hunt, cook, garden, farm animals and walking/hunting in the woods. I love sharing our home with family and friends.
I hope you enjoy the posts that I enter on my blog and hopefully will be helpful and/or fun to all that read it.

I took one look at my last post and found out that block number five needs to be re-pieced. Look at the block and see if you can find my mistake!!
Can’t see the mistake–it’s supposed to be a mirror image of this block number 6 except for the color changes.
The mistake is in the bottom row and the outer blocks need to be turned. I’m so glad I did the post so I could find the mistake before I started putting the quilt blocks together!!
I’ve set a goal for the year of completing a king-sized sampler quilt in burgundy as the primary color. I started it yesterday and completed six 10 inch blocks. Now, I just have to keep it up and hopefully have all of the 200+ blocks completed in three months, I hope!! I thought I would share the blocks as I go along so this will be a continuing post. Here’s the first six:
I think this is a pretty good start and if I 12 weeks to complete 200 blocks, that means I have to complete about 17 blocks a week, which works out to three a day for the next three months. WOW! Maybe I’d better rethink this time limit and make it six months instead of three. Oh well, I will get it done and I will post as I go. Wish me luck!! Did I tell you I also have three baby quilts to start and finish by JUNE 2013!!!!!!!
