This week's writer is a farmer's wife from Wood County, West Virginia. Eight of her twenty married years were spent in the "National Capital," where she and her husband "lived the comfortable lives of the great, middle-class." Her husband worked long office hours, and she was not happy about her lack of family life.
#105 Wild Goose Chase. There was no question that the colors in this block needed to grey, against a sky of blue.
#83, Spider Web. I chose kind of a silvery grey, the color of a web in the sunlight.
But she was happy to be in a place where "the birds sang, the flowers blossomed everywhere and the trees whispered their soothing secrets." Sounds idyllic.
#42, Fruit Basket. I changed the color scheme just a bit so there is a definite basket, filled with blackberries.
#32 Farmer's Daughter. The color choice for this block seemed obvious--it had to be pink!
I'm really happy with how the blocks are progressing and love the look of them together.
observations--they are always insightful and interesting!
