Bee Happy: I decided to paper piece this one so I made alterations. It also ended up facing the other direction, but that's ok.
This is the latest block: At Home Anywhere. Again, I drafted this one into a paper pieced pattern... I am still on my applique and embroidery break. When I saw this block I thought right away of a painting I have from my grandma.
This is the home where she grew up, and the chicken house next to it. My mom used to tell me stories of visiting "Little Grandma". When they butchered the chickens, her siblings would watch as they ran around headless. She said the rooster was the worst as he was really mean.
Another fun story mom would tell is that her grandma wanted to redo a portion of the house. Her grandfather came home to her tearing into a wall, and cutting down what ended up being a bearing wall. I can imagine this as I have felt the same at times in regards to home projects!
All my guys are gone to a scouting event. I have one more free day of sewing and no cooking left!
