Dear Jane- Row A

I got super focused on my DJ quilt this week, instead of things I really should be doing, but I finished Row A, wohoo:
I had to redo a couple of blocks cause I wasnt happy with them but Im loving it so far. Row B looks a little more challenging (ekkkk curved piecing....these will be my humility blocks!!!). Block tally is now 54 and just to make sure I didnt fluke the first one (centre in pic):
I tried a couple more triangles!!! These were fun, so my triangle tally is now 3!
Back to what I should be working on.....these blocks are addictive and its hard to stop lol!
Thoughts to everyone in New Zealand........it has been heartbreaking to watch the destruction and loss of human life following their recent earthquake!

A Very Busy Week.....

......and it isnt over yet!!!

Ive had a huge week in the studio and managed to prep some applique DJ Blocks ready to stitch at Craft this weekend and I also finished 2 of the pieced ones, bringing my tally to 50 Blocks :
A9- Cabin Fever, A11- Pebbles Protest
I started doing these blocks in random order (ok I just picked the easiest ones lol) but Ive decided to work my way through the rows and Im aiming to have Row A completed and sashed in the next week or two!
I also finished up a new Threadbare project...... more on that later:
And spent some time with the pencil, designing my next stitchery:
Please dont look at the messy pencil lines, drawing is a struggle for me....... lucky Im a neat stitcher lol.
Hope everyone is having a great, productive week!!!!

DJ Progress

I took a few days over the weekend for a little "me" sewing time and was really inspired to get my Dear Jane book back out and sew some more squares. Finishing the squares for this gorgeous quilt is one of my 2011 goals and I was thrilled to add another 8 blocks to my total....now have a total of 48!!!


F7- Star Struck, E12- Mary Ruth
A4- Courtneys Stethoscope, E9- Quilt Jail


D9- Uncle Richard, M8- Enchanted Square
H10- Bens Bowtie, L8- Box Kite
Still have quite a few to go but Im going to commit myself to sewing a few every week. And just to see if I could sew one of them, I tried a triangle:

Wasnt quite as hard as I first thought, although this is one of the easier ones!!

To all Australians affected by Mother Natures wrath of cyclones, floods and bushfires on our beautiful country, our thoughts are with you and your families!!!
