Dear Jane block completed
This is the Dear Jane block I half way finished at my TGIF Group. I finished it last night while watching the last 4 episodes of Season 2 of "24". It is amazing really to think that I worked on this block for about 5 hours or more from start to finish - goodness - I can't imagine that I will ever complete this quilt, but I really hope I do because I really want it!!
These are all the blocks I have to date -- 13 blocks. I am not doing them in any particular order, just printing out a bunch of block on the printer from the Dear Jane CD and then doing them in no particular order. I see the potential of doing a block twice if I'm not careful. Someone from the Dear Jane digest sent me a Dear Jane spread sheet so I am keeping track of the blocks that I have done.
These are the next four blocks that are waiting to be done.
I have my sewing machine back --- yay, big happy dance!! And it is working really nicely, much better than before I sent it in -- well worth the $90.43. I finished Jessica's Christmas stocking and now I am planning to make a few more before December 1st. We are going off to Calgary on December 1st for 3 nights. It is my parents 50th wedding anniversary and Jim's 50th birthday - so a bit of a celebration will be happening in Calgary at the Sheraton Au Claire. We are also going to take the Christmas gifts down at this time - so I need that is why I need them ready before then.
We are having a ham for Thanksgiving Dinner tonight and the only kid who is coming tonight is Andrew. His girlfriend Anri is working tonight and Eric is off somewhere. I bought Andrew a razor for Thanksgiving - so I am hoping he will shave!! If he does I will post a before and after picture. He is starting to look like a mountain man. He says the guys at work call him Moses. Well off to mash the potatoes. Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
