From Lucky

G'Day my name is Leanne, but most people call me Lucky. I'll answer to anything, just don't call me late for dinner...lol

Dawn gave me the heads up to this blog and before I ramble on, I'd like to thank both Dawn and Vicki for their time and opportunity to join this awesome blog.

I have been sewing for almost 3 years (before that I knitted) and on my first visit on a Tuesday (at Dawn's) just over 2 years ago, I had my interest pricked about Dear Jane. I have the rulers, book and CD and off I went. Not knowing what I was letting myself into.

The photo above shows you how far I came and then halted.

Having pinpointed the problem I thought.... what the heck I'm starting fresh...new fabric theme and a lot more sewing/cutting/piecing and reverse sewing under my belt. I should be able to not feel like I am making something and not enjoying it.

I have already been collecting fabric for my "Farmer's Wife" quilt I want to start next year. These fabrics will be used for Jane's quilt as well. Civil war reproduction fabric.

Now you maybe thinking " OMG" what about those 15 blocks I have already made? Never fear, they will become one or two cushions for my lounge room. I really don't like wasting projects that have gone off the rails.

I have so enjoyed reading and looking at your posts and look forward to future posts.
