Back again with Jane

Hi my friends, well, well, that's been a long time since my last post.
I had a very busy month of june, lots of work, quite some stress and not that much time for sewing or blogging, but now I'm back, hurray.

First I have to tell you that june is a busy birthday month for me, 10th my nephew's, 15th mine, 20th my niece's and finally 25th my other nephew's who's also my godchild, so you can see, there was a lot of partying.
On june 23rd was also the celebration of our national day, huge party all over the country with lots of free drinks and fireworks. Busy, busy, busy, as you can see.

Yesterday I found some time to work on my Dear Jane blocks, had to do 4 to catch up and yes, finished 3 and the 5th is almost done. Welldone girl, lol. But oups, today is thursday and that means that a new block is being displayed at Anina's blog, so I'm again a little behind our "mistress".

Here now the pics of my Dear Jane's

First a pic of all the blocks done before



Now the new ones

C-1 Trooper Green's Badge

K-11 Columbine

K-8 Springbrook Park


And the ones I've done yesterday

H-11 Piercing Rays (first try on hand quilting, because of the Y seams and I'm pretty happy with the result)

M-11 Rickshaw

and H-13 Farm Fields


Now back to my sewing machine, as the last 2 just wait for me.
Oups, no machine for E-1, all applique, but I love that.

More news and pics soon, I promise.

Take care

I have been theatening to do a DJ and I would have never thought of using Kaffe fabrics to make it.

I love these colors. I have also started a Dear Jane quilt, but mine is in the traditional colors as illustrated in the book. Now that I've seen yours, I'm seriously considering changing my color scheme--I only have four or five blocks done so far.

Thanks for sharing--this has been eye opening!
