Thank you Jo!  I'm pleased with my progress.  I hope the surgeon is just as pleased this Wednesday.

I'll trade you the hot weather for some rain.  It is terribly dry here.  

I ought to pull out my Dear Jane blocks. I've had them all put together in kits just waiting!

I am working on my **FINAL** Deco Garden block!  I've completed (48) 12" floral blocks, (28) 6"x12" border blocks, and (4) 6" corner blocks.

I'm ALMOST ready to trim them all to size.  Dang, I can hardly wait!  :-)

Woohoo!  The end is in it's going to be gorgeous.

I'm putting the binding on the last quilt I did while exiled in Big Spring.  It was a very unhappy time and I will be glad to get it gifted and gone.

Daisy, I did not know that you had started a Dear Jane project. It is quite an undertaking.,

but, I must put mine aside to accomplish a baby quilt and finish a shop project.

I actually started it so many years ago when it made its first appearance in a quilt magazine back in 1999 or 2000. Back when the book was out but long before the software was available. I bought a ton of civil war fabrics and assigned them to photo copies of each bock. I haven't worked on it in more than a dozen years.

How about if you try using p-ping? 

The hyphen seems to make it okay with my computer.

I've found a pattern for a small bag that could be made with a more masculine look to it so have been busy making a couple as Christmas gifts for grandsons. It's the rose double zipper toiletry bag from owl be sewing you tube channel.

I came across of an idea for a Christmas gift for hard to find a gift son, that I'm thinking of turning into a pillow.  Does anyone have a good ration of how much to over lap when making an envelope pillow case? What's the tricks for not having elf ears for the corners of a pillow?
