Oh how excited I have been to start our journey together. Even the preliminary “practice” blocks I have done get me swooning. However, Jane, I will have to delay a bit more as I have over-extended myself once again. Either that or I am just lazy. (I am more inclined to believe the lazy part!)
I still have 20 blocks for my Michael Miller BOM (yes, I am behind) & 6 paper-pieced stars for my chain gang & 2 new blocks for the Nifty Nine Patch. The project I am working on at work is stressing me out & occupying my brain outside of work hours. And I still haven’t finished the great sewing room migration. My new bedroom works very well, but the sewing room looks like a tornado hit! This is in addition to normal everyday things like grocery shopping, laundry & dishes.
One piece of good news, Jane! I no longer have all of my Saturdays full! I only have clubs on the first & third Saturdays of the month, so next month looks really good! Also, a good friend came over & installed my garbage disposal this week, so I am a happy camper!
I did spend some time with Dear Jane-EQ last week, so I am still familiarizing myself with that. It’s a pretty cool program, but I wish it had all the functionality of the regular EQ programs. I can’t edit the blocks except to change the colors. I would like to change the rotary cutting instructions to use fewer pieces, but it won’t let me do it.
If I can get my butt in gear today & wake up, I am sure I can whip out those 20 blocks. I think the stars will take considerably longer since I am no pro at paper-piecing, so I might leave them for next weekend. We’ll see. Oh, but first I have to make peanut butter banana bread for work tomorrow. One more distraction!
I really want to get going so I will leave you here. Dear, dear Jane. I so look forward to seeing you again!
