At one point in construction, F stood for a number of things - those side diamonds were a pain. And I'm off in the upper right corner. Oh well, sashing will fix that little boo boo.

Dear Jane scared me for awhile

I got myself back in the sewing room tonight - it's been awhile. I've been eyeing this block for awhile, with fear. Then I did it - took about 1 hour and I'm happy with the results. Lesson learned - don't be afraid.

The Dear Jane blocks

These are the Dear Jane blocks I couldn't post on Sunday. I can only post photos if I uploade them to Picassa web albums first - anyone else having that problem?

Dear Jane

I set myself down at the sewing table tonight after all my house blessing (aka cooking and cleaning up) jobs were finished.
I have two more Dear Jane blocks done - they are fiddly and have tiny pieces. And it didn't help that I burned a finger and thumb cooking supper - I took the bandaids off cause they were interfering with my sewing! And my finger is fine.

Imagine A13 and C10 inserted right here.

For some reason I can't uploade photos from my computer right now. I had this problem once before I don't remember how I fixed it. I'll try for the photos tomorrow.

I found a new website with some instructions that are different that the other website I was using. Somewhere between the two sites and my own creativity I can figure out how to do the block.

Right now, I'm really jealous of my friend L who has found a lot more time to sew than I'm finding right now.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year and best wishes for 2013!

I'm not making any resolutions yet - maybe in a week or two when I've thought about it a little more.

I'm now caught up for November for Dear Jane. I finished this one last night.
I find these triangle pieces pesky to make - a lot of paper piecing that is fiddly to do and they always seem kinda crooked in the end.

I've looked ahead to the December blocks for Dear Jane - they are tricky and fiddly too - lots of small pieces.
