My crazy quilt this year for the Crazy Quilt Journal Project 2014 will be "Crazy Farm". This is my finished January block (with a little of the bottom cut off in the picture).
There will be a lot of flowers on my crazy farm. (Ooops the eyes are really getting bad...I can see where I stitched the fabrics together by hand).
I actually grow pumpkins on my little acreage. I grew mini ones this year.
I don't use a watering can much in my actual garden. I had several pumps installed years ago so I could hook up hoses to water if need be.
I LOVE roses - especially the old fashioned varieties. Here in Iowa wild roses are a real problem and difficult to get rid of out here in the country.
Well, these were supposed to be hollyhocks but I don't believe I've ever seen any blue ones. At least I've never grown any blue ones. I think when I started stitching on these I was thinking of my delphiniums. But, hey, this is a CRAZY farm so blue it is for my hollyhocks!
I've never raised sheep; however, my grandma (mom's mom) did. I remember feeding one of them with a baby bottle when I was a very small girl. And I have to admit the small girl in me wanted to add some sheep dip to this stitching!!!!
I tried some broderie perse applique - pear perse.
Some lazy daisy flowers to kind of match the "flowers" in the fabric.
All across the block some curvy chain stitches , bullion flowers in 6 strands of variegated thread and some variegated green leaves in can't remember that stitch.
And now that my new project block is finished I can go back and finish up block #20 on my Crazy Cravings block this fine Slow Stitching Sunday.
Don't miss what everyone else is slowly working on today at the linky party Slow Stitching Sunday at Kathy's Quilts.
