Friday Night Sew-In.

Unfortunately, this months Friday Night Sew-In coincided with me working until 10pm.  However, once home I made the most of it and sewed for a couple of hours-trying to  finish up a couple of Dear Jane blocks that I had prepped and ready to go.
I love sewing these little gems.  Tiny pieces of fabric, tiny seams, tinier applique.  Don't be fooled, however.  These tiny blocks don't take a tiny amount of time to prepare and sew together.  I find it so easy to get caught up in "just a couple more pieces and then I'll go to bed."  Before I know it, it's 2 hours later!
Here are my blocks - 1 completed, one almost.
Look at that lovely sunshine streaming in through the window, shadowing my work.  It's the last week of Autumn here in Australia and the cold has hit.  I'm looking forward to Winter, and hopefully some rain.  This is my favourite time of year.


  1. Very small blocks! I know how much more challenging those can be than regular-sized blocks.

    How cold is the "cold" that's hit?

  2. Great looking blocks...great use of tiny prints...all those itsy bitsy pieces...well done on getting that much done after being forced to do the income producing stuff.
