I went to the state fair with my friend Lissa & some of her family. We had SUCH a great time [as usual] & it turned out to be such beautiful day! I am upset with myself for not taking more pictures but hey i was busy eating & eating & when i wasnt eating i was feeding the animalls! [not even kidding]
So here ya'll go some views from the day!

The circus at the Fair!?!
These two models are built from Legos! Was amazing in person!
The above model is of the stadium that our COLTS football team plays at! [built exact from Legos] Below are pictures of a Lego model of our famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway where the Indy 500 is held!
thanks to ya'll for looking & thanks to Lissa for asking me to go!
I wanted to share my next FW blocks with ya'll! I also meant to tell you about Amanda a sweet blogger/twitter friend that is doing an amazing Farmer's Wife quilt along over HERE!

Hiya! Awhile back i bought the book The Farmer's Wife. It is similar to the Civil War Love Letter book.
They are great books that give you a quilt block to make & tell a story that goes with it or gives actual letters from that time period!
Super neat to read how things were SO different back then! Very inspiring as well!
I decided that i wanted to make this using ONLY from my scrap bin..which is kinda the whole foundation that quilitng is from but also a nice challange as we ALL know we have so many lines of fabrics to choose from these days! So i started grabbing fabrics, trying not to be too picky!
This is what i have done so far....go easy on me!
Block #1. Attic Windows
Block #2. Autumn Tints
Block #3. Basket
Block #4. Basket Weave
