I'm Back!

So glad I haven't been dropped from this list, it's been quite some time since I posted!  I've made a few blocks so far this year and finally loaded my Dear Jane software onto the computer.  Due to being down with a bad cold for a few days I've been learning how to use it, and hope to start scheduling myself some blocks so I can actually finish this year.


I've started adding my blocks to the chart, it's quite a job!  I have a lot more blocks done than this, these are just the ones I've found pictures of on my computer.  Since I upgraded to Windows 8 last month I've been struggling with getting programs to run correctly and re-loading the pictures I want.  I figure that tomorrow if I have some daylight I will re-take pictures and see if I can fill the chart up more.  It's kind of fun and a good activity that's fairly restful.

I plan on scheduling myself 5 blocks a week.  I want to machine quilt it, since I've seen some lovely ones that are finished that way.  I might even splurge on a wool batt, I hear they are lovely to work with!  Excuse me if I am rambling, the cold med's make me a bit loopy....

I'm glad to be back and making progress on this project - I've really enjoyed it so far and am looking forward to being able to print up the paper pieced templates instead of having to trace them!

Yeah, it's a little tricky to figure out how to work all the parts of the software that you want to use (like your own pics in the chart, and printing things out. . . ), but it sure is nice to print those foundations out! Love that you're doing a Blue Jane.

I love your baby Jane blocks great color selection. Those colors are perfect. The colors look simular to mine. I also fell in love with your Dear Jane cross stitch. Please post it when you're finish.
