Still working on it!!

Well - it certainly has been a long time since I posted any blocks - although I  have still been puttering away at my Dear Jane quilt.  I needed to do a bit of housekeeping on my blog before I could even start this post.

I have been working on another hand stitching project and the Dear Jane has been set aside for the past 8-9 months but I am starting to feel like getting back to work at it.  I have 50 blocks completed now!!


A couple of weeks ago - I fell/slipped while walking Jenny in the forest - Cypress Trails - and I fractured my ankle. So I am in a boot cast and non weight bearing on crutches until September 9th - at which time I go back to see the doctor and find out what's next.  He says this will take 3 months!!  So this summer is being spent sitting on the deck with the computer playing some Netflix TV and some hand stitching projects.  So that leads to my ability and desire to get back to my Dear Jane.  I think it needs a name -- I need to think about that for awhile - but I definitely think I need to give it a name sooner rather than later. 

I have completed four blocks since my last post - in 2009!!  Good heavens - 2009!  I need to get cracking on it.  If I only do two blocks a year it will take me 87.5 years to finish the rest of the 175 blocks!  I don't think I have that much time!  So time to get back into the swing of it.

 I usually like to put the names of the block as well but I have the book downstairs and right now it is a bit of an event to get to my quilting room  - I can do it but it takes a bit of bumping up and down the stairs on my butt - and it is a slow process.  So I will add the names at some later time.
