they're like Pringles!

addicting little guys, i tell you! i squeaked out one more before the holiday rush ( and eh, clean up...)   lOVE this book! Love, LOVE this method of piecing!!


( just trace, title your pieces, cut them out & iron them onto the fabrics you love!... the book will show you how to do it! sigh.... )



i can't wait to make another today... but first, i'm off to my local gardening store to pick up a "How to Book", another goal for 2012!! Any good books you all can share with me on Gardening??
I'm a green little newbie!! :)

  3. I have a book called "ALL NEW Square Foot Gardening" by Mel Bartholomew. (He also has the orginal "Square Foot Gardening"

    It focuses on small gardens. The premise is that every square foot is a different veggie/plant.

    It talks about building boxes, to fertilizing, to planting, maintaining, etc.

    The back of the book has a breakdown of how many plants per square foot. I thought it was perfect for hubby and me. Plant just what we need in a smaller area. [We have done strawberries for years in a pot; done herbs in "window boxes" that hang off the edge of my deck .. and last year we expanded to pepper plants and tomato plants in containers ON the deck. This year, we're going beside the deck w/ a small raised (a foot or so) garden using the "square foot" method.

  4. Square Foot Gardening is the best book I've found. http://www.squarefootgardening.com/products/ALL-NEW-Square-Foot-Gardening-Book.html
    It doesn't matter how much space you have. It makes everything very doable. Good luck with the garden!

  5. I'm all for the square foot gardening book too, though I don't have the new one mentioned (I'll be off looking for that now). Love your blocks so far, too! I had my CWD book spiral bound and it made it really easy to trace or copy the patterns out of and it was not that expensive if I remember (maybe $4 or so at Kinko's)

  7. your blocks are great! I like this method of piecing also! I've checked that book out a few times from the library. It's a good book with lots of history. My husband even read it :)

  9. I got this book for Christmas and gave it the side eye when I saw it had no templates or anything. Seeing this makes me hopeful that I will actually be able to make blocks from the book, thank you!

  10. I think I might be joining you on this one! I love the Farmer's Wife but have fallen really far behind and don't know if I can catch up. It would be nice to start the new year with a new, fresh project that's just for me (even if it takes me awhile to complete)!
