Today was Tough!!!

This top is finally finished!!!!!!!! Yea!!!!
This should have been completed HOURS ago. I was ready to put in the last seam and would you believe that 2 blocks were turned around? Ever had that happen? Somehow something was backwards. I could blame Rocky, but, he has been outside all day. Anyhow, at least it is now finished and I can now go on to something else. I think that needs to be the Bug quilt that I was quilting more than a month ago. The Bugs will be someones Christmas quilt, but I don't know who.

Now to clean up the kitchen, make some cornbread and fix supper.
See ya!

PS. right now, blogger won't show my signatures, hope they fix this soon.

Baby Jane and other "Stuff"

I had lots of company in the Studio yesterday to "help" with my various projects.
This is Rocky and Patches. He really gave her a hard time yesterday. It was cold outside, so Dick decided that he needed to be inside. What a day!

He harrassed that cat all day. Rocky loves to lick, like any Lab, and Patches was soaking wet most of the time. She really was patient with him.

This is Jake. He is a 15 year old Lab Shephard mix that we adopted 15 years ago as a puppy. He really can sleep with his head in this position. He is the very best dog we have ever had. Rocky has a lot to live up to.

This is another block to my Cottage Garden Quilt. This makes block number 3. Only 6 more to go!!! This project will have to age for a while so that I can get back to work on Christmas.

Now, to Baby Jane. I have caught up again.
This Green and white block is D-7 Meeting Place

The yellow and white blockI-3 Family Album

This multi-color is L-4 St. George's Cross

This triangle is BR (Bottom Row) 8 Thunderhead.
This brings my Dear Jane signature to :
Who would have believed that I could accomplish so much in just the 8 months that I have been working on this project. I didn't actually start until March. I am loving this project.
Have a good week and a Great Thanksgiving!!!

Back to Baby Jane

I am finally trying to catch up with my Baby Jane. After Quilt Camp, QSC's retreat, and fulfilling other obligations I can get back to this.

This red and white block is C-5 Eye of the Cyclone. It required a little piecing and a little applique. Lots of fun to do

Next Up would be yellow and white and called C-4 Tic Tac Toe-variation 1. This required some
paper piecing and a little adjustment on the corners. What fun!

Then there is the purple block. A-10 Which Points West. Boy!! was this a bear!!! Anina provided us with some wonderful instructions to help out with this block. When I started it I really did not think it would work our, but, SURPRISE it finished perfectly. Thanks Anina.
Now we have our triangle. This is Right Side Triangle 8, Love Forever. Total reverse applique and great fun.

These are the blocks that I have completed today. Hopefully I can do something toward Christmas presents tomorrow. I also need to up load some of the pictures from Quilt Camp and from our Guild Challenge, Devine Stars. See you soon.
