I can't believe it's been so long since I last posted! Again!! I've been very faithfu about reading blogs, but so bad about posting this year. Anyway, I'll try to do better.
For most of the time since we returned from our trip in March, my husband has been ill. It took weeks to diagnose - so many tests, so many visits to doctors and hospitals, so much time that he's felt lousy. He's on the mend now, feels somewhat better, and hopefully will be completely well soon.
It seems to me that whenever I finish a large project that I have a hard time getting back into the groove of sewing. I absolutely loved finishing the green quilt; it turned out so nicely. Since then, sitting on my sewing table or the bed in the sewing room, I've had my Double Wedding Ring project, Red and Aqua swap blocks, Red White and Blue swap blocks, a pile of blocks for Sylvia's Bridal Sampler and, of course, my Dear Jane blocks. If you remember, back in March, I was sure I would finish the DJ blocks by the end of the month. I only had 3 left to do, but since then, they have just sat there, glaring at me! I didn't sew a stitch on them -- until Friday. Then I started in on the last three, and now all 169 blocks are done!! I can't believe it. I started putting sashing on them this afternoon, and will start on the triangles tomorrow. I'll show you the top after I get all the blocks sashed and sewn together.
I haven't done a lot of sewing in these weeks, but I've spent more time doing the redwork for yet another project I have underway. Do you think I'll ever finish them? So these are the few things I've done. Red White and Blue swap blocks

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.
