October Friday Night Sew-In Results & Beating the Rain
Actually I have been sewing a few hours every afternoon this week. It has been gloomy and rainy here since Wednesday.
I've been working on one block at a time.
Here is what the back looks like. I will have pictures when it's all done.
Early this week there has been a mad rush to beat the rain that was coming. We did get all the soy beans in the river bottom field all combined before the rain came and flooded the field.
During harvest season it's not unusual for the neighbors to see me driving loaded wagons or following Dean with my four-way flashers. If you live in farming country where there is slow moving equipment, please leave a few minutes early and be patient with us. We don't enjoy blocking traffic and being in someone's way--we're just trying to get our crops in.
After all the rain, it will be a while before we're out in the fields. Every year is different in farming and this year sure is different!
I did have quilt club this week and had a wonderful evening with the girls!
