September 25, 1862 Eldress Nancy Elly Moore wrote in her diary

Jackson Mcgown went up to Bowling Green with apples and cider to sell to the Army, he brought home some newspapers, which are eagerly sought for and pursued with avidity. (quote from Rosemary Youngs Civil War Diary Quilt book)

I wrote to my CWD journal today:

I made it!
Block number 21, News!!! HIPHEIhurraa;)

It was a struggle, because I have a terrible headache and a lot of pain in my neck and upper part of the back. I have eaten all kind of painkillers within 24 hours. They are helping me a couple of hours, after that the pain continues again. I have spared one really effective tablet for the next night. I hope it will eliminate those pains and I can sleep. Maybe I have to go to the masseur... soon!

So I'm not willing to type and sit at the computer at all in this evening.

I used fabrics from Andover (tan and plum), little white flowerprints on white (don't know the manufacturer) and white stars on lavender is Kansas City Star Coll. by Barbara Brackman.

Oh, hurts...
I must quit now...
Until next time...
... October 7th!!!

Think Too Little of My Blessings

September 15, 1861 Sarah Lois Wadley wrote in her diary

Father and Major Bry think that the war will continue through Lincoln's administration, but I pray that god in his mercy may avert this trial, I have never contemplated a long war, I have steeled myself to bear great and bloody battles and, many privations and even suffering for a little while, but four long years of war, of suspense which is worse than defeat almost; my heart sinks, my courage utterly fails; can I bear it? but why speak thus, I know I must bear it, and it only rests with me to decide whether I shall bear cheerfully or repiningly. I hope I may be enabled to be cheerful, and I sometimes think I can be so, but there are moments of darkness, in which I cannot think of the brightness which is often hid by clouds, and waits but for the stormy wind to scatter them and makes its glory apparent. - I think too much of my sorrows and too little of my blessings, - (quote from Civil War Diary Quilt -book written by R. Youngs)

This note is very touching. I'm speechless...

I used Quilt Gate's and Lecien fabrics. Pink and cream are from Mary Rose Collection, green is Lecien's Mrs March's Collection.

I wanted to reach some touching feeling with this block number 117. Because of that I fussy cut the lady in the middle part of the block. And I just adore those fabrics;)

Next time I'll have 'News' on September 25. Hopefully I'll find suitable fabrics...

Och Hälsningar för dig, Elin!
Hopefully you will join this fun with me soon again;)
Take care...

It was a nice experience to arrange this giveaway...and I'm glad that you joined in... maybe again next year ;)

Riikka (vastaan sinulle tällä tavoin, kun en tiedä email -osoitettasi)
Mukava, että osallistuit arvontaan;) Itse tilaan kankaani pääsääntöisesti netin kautta joko ulkomailta (Ruotsi, USA) tai Suomesta (Tilkkutex, Tilkkutarha, Tilkkusatu, Poppanavakka). Helsingissä on tilkkukauppa nimeltä Tilkkutalo Kotipuoti. Siellä aina aika ajoin piipahdan, kuten myös kaivelemassa Eurokankaan puuvillakangaslaatikkoja;)

I FINISHED finally today my first Stitcher's Angel project. It was the first week design from Helen.

I named it - A pouch full of roses.

I changed the measurements a little and used the linen. It's perfect as a birthday gift pouch!

My last summerholiday week is now over... have to go to the work tomorrow morning:(
But I'm lucky, there is a high pile of unfinished works waiting for me in the evening;)))

I wish you a happy and autumnal week!
