Jane's Rocket

Here are the Jane Babies I finished this week. They were all from my hand-work tote.







When I entered the piece counts for this week's finishes on the spreadsheet, it told me I was up to 1992 pieces. It just bugged me. It was like it was saying "Neener, neener, neener!" being so close to a perfectly even 2000. I was tempted to finish one more Baby to top that number, but yesterday I prepped the next double-set of Babies to work on (the rest of the catch-up, by the way, woohoo!) and right now I am SICK TO DEATH of Jane. 

But it BUGGED me! So I pulled my Jane Box out of the bureau drawer and fished out all the loose Babies.  

Then I gritted my teeth and sewed 8 sashing pieces on (and ONLY 8) so I could get that spreadsheet total to 2000.

Silly me.  :D    But I'm not going to sew anymore Jane stuff today. Machine or hand. She can just cool her jets for a day or two.   Maybe I'll take the family to Batman instead. And a bike ride along Cottonwood Creek Trail. And maybe we'll try some disc golf on that public course along the trail. Oh, wait - Scott says those aren't frisbies they use, but real-live golf discs, which are a little bit different. Maybe we'll have to try that some other day - Something to look forward to.

You are so brave to count all those tiny pieces!!!! I don't really want to know or I might go mad!!! I do love the bright fabrics in the rainbow Jane - I do get bored with blue!!! However, good ol' Liberty keep putting out new blues all the time. Enjoy your Jane free day!!
