A few More Dear Jane Photos


I recently found a few photos that I had taken with my phone at a retreat.  These are a few of the blocks altogether as a group. 




I am working with the Windows Live writer right now.  I have about 6 different ways in which to upload posts to my blogs.  I have to see how this Windows Live Writer is working now.  I had to resize the pictures to fit on my blog.  Who knows what it will look like when I post this.

I have a bunch of pictures of the process I go through from start to finish on making and hand piecing my blocks.  I might do a post on this and make it in to a tutorial.  It seems tutorials are very popular these days.  And I have a lot of time on my hands to figure out how to add a tab and all that Jazz!

Not sure how many people pop in to see this blog but if there is any interest out there I can certainly work on a tutorial of some kind.

Okay here goes – pressing post…….

I was reading my Dear Jane blog the other day and it looked nothing had changed for me since August 2011 - I was once again on crutches! At least it is not STILL on crutches.

I must say that a lot has happened since I fell on that walk in the woods on July 18 2011 and fractured my ankle. My ankle has healed but a bigger problem that was hidden deep in my foot reared it's ugly head and I just had a very big surgery on my foot on November 14.
I have not been neglecting my Dear Jane in the last 18 months. I have completed 3 blocks - keeping up with my usual pace!
J6 - Granny Weaver

J7 - Chicken Tracks

M8 - Enchanted Square

I have been assigned mostly bed rest with my foot elevated for the next few weeks so I am working away on a couple of projects. I have completed the Civil War Chronicles BOM 2010 quilt and I sent it out to be machine basted with the plan to do some hand quilting on it over the winter months.
I am also planning on working on a few Dear Jane blocks.
This is B8 - Water Lily

I am also working on my iPad and finding posting to my blogs a bit challenging. There are a couple of different apps about that are supposed to make it easier but at this time it seems they are just adding to my frustration. I am trying to post from Blogpress for the second time. The Google+ seems to have failed and the Blogger app only seems to work from the iPhone and that is even having issues. So I am going to try again!
