I have blocks to share!

So!  Although it has been months since I have posted I have been busy working on my Dear Jane.

I have been quite productive actually.  We bought a boat this June and we have been out cruising around the Pacific North West ( as it's know in the U.S. ) or the West Coast as it's know to us Canadians.  We have spent about 6 weeks this past summer out on the water.  And I have discovered that my Dear Jane is a perfect project as I sit in the Pilot house in the afternoon as we cruise along.

So first I will show a few boat pictures before we get to the Dear Jane block photos.

Here is our boat -- a Kadey Krogen 42 and we have named her Phoenix Hunter.


This is my spot in the pilot house that I set up my Dear Jane for stitching.  The light is really good - even on cloudy grey days there is plenty of light.

One of the nice little anchorages we stayed at this summer.  This is James Bay on Prevost Island in the Gulf Islands off Vancouver Island BC

Jenny out for a walk on the shore.  Jenny has taking to boating quite well - we are pleased.  She loves to go to shore and knows that a ride of the dingy is a trip to shore.
