Lotsa Sewing Going On

I never did get out to get some batting, so my little Downey quilt isn't finished yet.  Maybe tomorrow...

I spent my sewing room time on my Dear Jane blocks, and I was able to finish 3 Friday, 3 yesterday, and 3 today.  Don't worry, I'm not going to show them all to you - too many pictures.  Some were really difficult, and you can tell from the result that I had a lot of trouble.  One thing I've learned from the Dear Jane listserv is that finished is better than perfect!  Thank goodness - I'd have to give up on this craft if it required perfection!  But these little 4  1/2 inch sweeties are so addictive.  I love making them.  The blocks will be finished soon, and then I have to start on the triangles.  I'm not sure I'm going to love them.



I've really cut back on joining swaps, but I still do one each month, and keep track of what's available on  SwapBot.  I have one that needs to be to its new home by the 26th, so I got it ready today.  I hope she likes it. 

And then, just so it doesn't feel lonely, I made one more block for SBS.  I like the way it turned out.

There's a wonderful giveaway over on Gigi's Thimble.  Just click on the button in the sidebar.  She has such beautiful items.
