Well, how restful has this weekend been? The kids are on holidays, DH is on days off, and I haven't worked since Friday. The weather has been very kind to everyone who has things going on for the Easter weekend.
I've accomplished a fair bit of sewing.
In 2001 I purchased the Dear Jane book with the intention of starting. Well, 9 years later, the book was still on my bookshelf in a browsed but unused state.
Thankfully, Quilters Bazaar have offered a monthly class to keep me on the straight and narrow. I may actually get moving and achieve something.
So, last Tuesday 9 of us gathered to start this monumental journey. As of Tuesday, 2 of us are handpiecing and 7 are going to machine foundation piece. I actually finished the block on the left at class!!!!
I needed to make myself a little block book to contain all the millions of pieces, too.
Whilst sewing these blocks, I've been watching the first 2 episodes of The Matrix. I'm sooo far behind on my film viewing!
In between times, I'm still working on my Joseph's Coat quilt. I'm busy basteing the fabric over the interfacing templates. I need to piece 49 blocks, but before I begin i'm trying to baste a lot of the leaf shapes so I have a good selection to choose from.
Onwards, so much sewing to be done and viewing of movies to catch up on.
