Today the sewing room was really calling - from early morning. So as soon as breakfast was done I was off to sew. There are several things I have to finish this month, and everything must be completed by the 20th, since my husband and I are leaving on the 21st for our winter vacation to the sun. I finished making the quilt top for the Fall Mini swap and already have the batting and backing. I should have just continued working on it so that I'd have one of my January projects complete, but of course I didn't. This is where it is right now, but since it's a mini, it won't take a lot to finish it.
As of yesterday I was so close to having 100 blocks completed for the Dear Jane, that I just had to keep working on it. I did 2 blocks yesterday and 2 more today, so I officially have 100 of those little blocks complete. Here are the latest.
When those get to be too much for me to work on, I switch to the Sylvia's Bridal Sampler blocks. They're a little larger than the DJ blocks which makes them a little easier to work with. I'm making this totally from my stash except for the background fabric. I had some, but not enough for a quilt. I bought another fabric and I'm using them both. I like having the variety in the blocks. So far, this quilt is just what I work on when I don't want to do any of my other projects. I'm sure, however, that as I get more done it's going to become more important and pressing to be done.
I'm getting very close to my 100th post, so I'm working on getting a giveaway ready. I'll tell you more about it later. So until tomorrow, thanks for stopping by.

Welcome to my blog. As you can see from my WIP list, my interests are varied, but unfortunately, keep me sitting still to complete them. I am retired, and enjoying all the freedom it brings. My hubby and I enjoy travel, especially cruises, and you can count on seeing pictures of our travels here on occasion. So, I hope you enjoy what I put here, as much as I enjoy my visits to your blog.
