Harassment

January 14, 1862 Nancy Elly Moore wrote in her diary

At nine o'clock P.M. just after we had retired for the night, we were disturbed of our rest by the noise and tramp of Calvary horses in the street. The Brethren went out to see what was wanted. They said they wanted supper and lodging for 225, also forage for their horses. --- --- They threatened if we did not give them a place to warm themselves, they would break into our dwellings and help themselves. When we found they would not be put off, but were becoming angry, the Sisters got up and prepared supper for them as quick as possible. ---
(quotes from Civil War Diary Quilt book written by R. Youngs)

Nancy was living threatful moments during the Civil War - indeed. It wouldn't be nice to wake up that kind of harassment... although I almost every night wake up something odd noise... Oh, it's just Fenix playing with his mouses or balls;)

This evening I sewed from these fabrics...

- light blue Itsy Bits from Renee Nanneman
- dark blue Lucinda's Needle from Jo Morton
- cream Farmyard Toiles from Carolyn Carpin


Block 17. Harassment


If you look the block closer you see that the seams in the center parts are not so accurate... but they are exactly the same in the pattern... First I tried to fix it, but then I decided to leave it just as they are in the original...

Maybe that's the harassment matter in the block....???

Please, Be with me and with my CWD blocks again
on the 27th of January!
