Ready, Set and Go again

I am excited for this blog because I plan on it being my support for getting my DJ finish, and boy do I have a way to go.
My story goes like this and maybe it's your story too. I just fell in love with DJ and wanted to challenge myself by making one of mine own. So I picked out a fabric collection for it. I like the pink and brown that was being popular at the time, this was 4 years ago. Yes 4 years.

I have the book, the rulers, the EQ program for Dear Jane and I even have the thread I'm going to use when I quilt it.

These are the blocks I have done and then it stopped. Not because I don't like it or I got frustrated. No, it's because something else came up, so I put it all in the container I had and put it aside. Well with time and stacking other containers on top, it just became that saying "out of sight, out of mind"

So now I dug it out and opened it up for the fist time in years.
I'm giving myself a goal of doing at least 10 a month. Unfortunately I still have other stuff going on that I can not quit. I look at it as, each one done is one more closer to finishing.

Till next time

Yeah, someone at my level. I now have 5 done and actually set a goal of 5 a week for myself. I have already not made that unless I get 5 done tonight. :( But if we at least keep trying and encouraging each other, we will get it done. I love your saying of getting closer to the end with each block.

I'm trying to get one a week right now. I started out full speed and then started going slower and slower and slow... So I think, at this point, if I manage one a week, I'll eventually finish. I have 57 done so ahhhh, in a little over 3 years I'll finish the middle. Ok, maybe I'll manage more than one a week sometimes.

I see Jane as a long-term friend. I plan on spending a full two years with her, perhaps another 6 months, at a pace of 10 Babies per month. Sometimes that may slide a bit, and that's OK. :D
