May 28, 1862. Rachel Young King Anderson wrote in her diary
This terrible war that has been raging since the 12th of April, 1861 seems to be just begun. During last year the South was successful in most of the battles. That is at Fort Sumpter, Manassas, Leesburg and many others. This year the tide has turned. The North has been victorious in most of the important engagements; they now have possession of all the Border States and many of important points on the coast and rivers. The state is in an alarming condition. Towns, farms, houses are being burned, men hung or shot, women accidentally killed and wounded, children crippled or killed by careless soldiers.
I was planning to sew two CWD blocks in this month, but it remained at the dreaming level... Oh dear... BUT I'm extremely happy to show you atleast one new block for my CWD quilt:)))
BLOCK 1. Alarming Conditions
The yarns, knitting and crocheting kept me busy in May. So I only sewed few other blocks for the SBS. And my sewing skills are about to begin get rusty... I just noticed that today...
I have now few days of holiday, BEFORE I'll start again the job at the park department of Kotka. Oh, I surely would like to have much more holiday in this summer. But I must earn some money before the school will continue in August. This year seems to be much harder than I first thought. I hope all this is worth of all hard work... I'll try to not take it too serious;)
PS. This new version of blogger almost drove me grazy last week... especially when I lost my sidebar... hopefully it works right and properly for now on...
Sunny weekend to every one...
I'm happy you read my tales;)
