Farmer's Wife - hand piecing

I have been working on projects that I would love to share, however, I seem to have a hard time getting pictures taken.

I worked a few more of my farmer wife blocks up to the larger size.  This is working great, especially since not all of my original blocks are the same size.

Last, but certainly not least, I hand pieced one block.  I had to do this because I promised my daughter that I would work on her quilt and with my sewing machine in the shop this is the only way I could keep my promise.

To tell you the truth, it was simple and I don't think it took me longer than sewing by machine.  With machine sewing I am back and forth from the sewing machine to the ironing board.  Hand sewing, I sat in the corner of my couch and sewed the whole block, then ironed it.  It was quite relaxing.
