This week I am sharing another Farmers Wife Block. The block assigned to us this week was #41 the Friendship Star.
For those who do not have this book and are not quilting along with a group or on their own I thought I would give a short bit out of one of the letters to the newspaper that are listed in the book. Such as the following letter from a mother speaking of her daughter marrying a farmer.
"She will have the best place in the world to raise her children. They will have all out-doors to play and grow in. They will learn nature's lessons naturally and normally, without acquiring wrong and oftentimes soul-blighting conceptions of life's wonders."
I was thinking as I read this even though it was written in the 1920's, wouldn't we all love these things for our daughters and grandchildren in this very modern time?
Thank you for stopping by! Blessings from our home in the woods.
