Sewing Success

After several days of feeling like a failure, today was a good sewing day.  I got several placemats pieced for my daughter.  I want to make 6 different traditional patterns, and for the life of me, after I had done 4 I couldn't think of any others.  So I'll have to look at some block patterns this evening and do those last 2 tomorrow. 








I prepared the pieces I need to do the applique on the cardinal blocks, and plan to work on that during tv time this evening.  If I can get one finished tonight, I'll show you tomorrow.
I've now completed 88 of the blocks for the Dear Jane quilt, and really want to get to 100 this week.  When I came to a standstill on the placemats, I was not ready to quit sewing for the day, so I got 3 more done this afternoon.  What surprised me was that I found 2 very simple ones to make that didn't take any time at all to complete.  The third one I made was completely paper pieced, and took more time to make than the other 2 combined.  Anyway, these are my accomplishments for the day.
