Dear Jane and Other Deliciousness

I worked at my other job this afternoon - do you think I can claim workman's comp for cramped shoulders, fingers, and a headache? which I got at home? At least the pile of work I was working at is smaller.
I sewed some this evening - I needed a break and haven't had any time to myself all week.
Dear Jane is coming along. These darn paper pieced blocks are giving me a headache cause they turn out a bit too small and a bit off square. I used my new travel iron (which I love) and fingers to press the paper pieced part, which helped a bit. I'm not giving up yet.

And this deliciousness arrived this week. I am so in love with this fabric! It is vintage modern by Bonnie and Camille. I bought it on-line from the intrepid thread - my second purchase from her. If you're looking for modern fabric, I can't recommend her enough! These particular pieces will become my new bag for work. I also got a charm pack (and am piggy-backing Lynn's order - thanks) for another 2 charm packs to make myself a quilt.
