L1 - Widow's Pane

I finished this block today. I really like the way the blocks look with the scanner instead of a photo.

Picasa is being a bit weird right now --- again!!
Anyway - Web Page soon.

Two more blocks - picture with the scanner

E-3 Paddle Wheel

D-4 Crystal Star
Of course I can't remember if I posted these blocks yet. But I have scanned in all my blocks and I think the pictures of the blocks from the scanner and much better than the digital camera. The reason I have scanned in the blocks is because ----- drum roll!! --- Eric (middle child) is making me a DJ webpage! He is making a grid for all the blocks and it will be set up so that when you click on the little block in the table a big block pops up. It will be so cool. It is still under construction. It has taken him hours and hours of typing. I think by the time he is finished he will know the Dear Jane blocks of by heart. So I am pretty excited and I will post a link as soon as it is ready to go.

I-1 Ralph and Nelda's Wedding

I like the pink fabric of this one.

I am going to look into some sort of a photo spread sheet so the blocks can all be viewed in the layout of where they belong and I can track my progress a bit better - or clearer. I know nothing about computer codes so it will be a bit of a challenge for me but I think it will be a good challenge.

I-2 Kaye's Courtyard

I guess I should have cut the little tail pieces off this one before I took the picture. I like the fabric for this one. I have this fabric in a light red as well.

A nice grouping of blocks

I just think the blocks look so nice when they are all together. This is a small group of some of the last few blocks I completed.

This block is A-6 UNCLE HOMER

Good block to start with. It could easily be done on the sewing machine as the pieces are quite big. I stitched it by hand the same as the others. I am going to go watch the Grammy awards and work on my next block. Jim has gone to Portland for the week so I am alone this week. Unfortunately I have to work all week -- I would have gone to Portland if I didn't have to work and I could have taken my DJ blocks there. Although it seems that when I take quilting with me on holiday I never actually do any work on it!

M-2 Duff's Bluffs

I haven't posted a block for awhile now.
This is a nice little block to do - fairly simple but with some tiny pieces. I am almost caught up posting blocks that have been completed before I started the blog. Next time it will be more recent blocks. I am just working on one right now with the tiniest little squares I have yet to sew.

A-5 Cathie's Campfire

This is such a pretty block and I love the fabric I used for it. Some fairly tiny pieces in it but not too difficult. It is the curved pieced blocks that are the tricky ones!!

Now Picasa seems to be working today, the way it used, before the change over. When I go to publish it is actually uploading the post right onto my blog and opening the blog right away like it did before. It hasn't done that since beta came online. I sure hope that the issues have been resolved now.
