Not a lot of quilting activities going on today. I started physical therapy today for my plantar faciitis and it's the first time a "massage" made me want to cry! But, I survived and stopped by Joann's to get some "cheap fabric" for my test drive and some smaller spools of thread for the featherweight.
When I got home, I cut out the next five blocks for my Farmer's Wife quilt. Hats off to Marti Michell for giving us free directions to use her templates but sometimes I need just a little more detail. She suggested a shortcut explained in one of her books to eliminate a seam, but I don't have the book and without the proper cutting dimensions, I just couldn't figure it out. So I relented and cut the stupid half square triangles and will do it the hard way for me.
I got around to the test drive just a couple hours ago and I must say she sews like a dream!!

I guess I'll go ahead and sew these into a blanket for the kitties.
