Anina over at Twiddletails laid down the gauntlet the other day.......
She's going to make her very own Dear Jane quilt
Cathi at Celtic Knots is in the middle of hand quilting her beauty.
I've had the book for several years now - I take it off the shelf, stroke and peruse it and then put it back again.
Anina has challenged us to join her on her Dear Jane voyage
Last night I made a start...........
I may not make the full quilt - I might only make a nine or twelve block Baby Jane but I'm going along for the ride - because I need another project like a hole in the head!
Here's last night's attempt - untrimmed I hasten to add it will be a bit smaller than this when cut to size.
In the comments on my last post Clare asked why you weren't allowed to see the wonky house I've made for Bonnie. No reason other than I was too bone idle to get off my butt and take a photo of it before I posted last time.
Remedied now! The house isn't that wonky in itself - just the setting but it'll add to the bunch no doubt.
This morning I had to be up by 6.30 to drop Nigel off at the local hospital for 7.30am. He's in as a day case for an umbilical hernia repair. I stayed with him until they wheeled him off down to theatre at about 10am. That felt very strange - with the various operations I've had over the years it's usually been him sitting at the side of my bed - I'd rather have been in the bed taking his place. I now have an edgy morning waiting until I can ring at around 1pm to make sure everything went okay. No reason to suspect it won't - it's a minor procedure but the sitting and waiting game isn't a comfortable seat.
Now do I finish off those embroidered hearts or decide on another DJ block to work on?
No it's a quick trip into town to take his passport renewal to the Post Office - he's left it right until the last minute to renew (forgot to look at the expiry date more like) still with a sore tum I don't suppose he'll be swanning off to foreign climes for a week or two
PS - His Lordship rang me on my mobile phone at around 12noon while I was in the Post Office queue to report he was 'dry as a bone, a little bit sore, very bruised and although he can probably be collected at about 2.30 has decided to sleep the afternoon off in there and summon me to collect him when he's ready later in the afternoon'
There's gratitude for me worrying my socks off all morning!!! :o)
