It goes to reason that since last month’s block was commemorating General Grant’s wife, this month would inevitably pay homage to General Lee’s wife, Mary Curtis Lee. She had a silver-spoon upbringing and she was highly educated, but the poor woman was just weak in many facets of her adulthood. Her life was such a sharp contrast to Irene Grant.
I really like this block, I think it is rather detailed and quite attractive. I’m now caught up on all my Civil War blocks, so you won’t be seeing another one until I receive my next shipment in April. But of course I have clothing construction to share with you in upcoming posts.

Sewing is my passion and I always have a notion to sew, but sometimes I get distracted with other crafty endeavors. I share my creative accomplishments (and sometimes failures) here on my blog. I am a licensed Martha Pullen beginning sewing instructor and serger instructor. For 5 years, I taught new owners how to use their Bernina sewing machines at my local Bernina dealer, and for 2 years I taught serger project classes at my local Baby Lock dealer. These days, my professional time is spent retailing handmade purse and bag making supplies and patterns. I also sell a small selection of fabric as well as my handmade bags and purses.
