Farmer Takes A Wife

I just love my Sew Bee Wonky Group.  It stretches me and lets me be creative.  Last month Jeri requested a people and/or places block using this tutorial.  Janeth had made her some row houses and a barn.  I decided it would be fun to make a farmer to go with the barn.  I was thrilled when I found the red check in my scraps.  It wasn't quite big enough so I put the farmer in overalls and put the straps of his overalls over the seam I had to make to make his arms long enough.  I think he turned out quite handsome.
 And every handsome farmer needs a good woman by his side.  So while I sang 'The Farmer In the Dell' I made him a wife.
 I guess I could have gone on with the song.  But my family thinks they need dinner every night.
