Dee, those are really pretty stars!

Considering how many blocks there are in a Dear Jane I would say you are on the home stretch with 34 left. Just keep going with it one block at a time and you will be done with making them soon, then I guess they need to go together but you will get there too.

Yea, I’ve kind of set me a goal of getting them done by mid-October so that I can sash them while at retreat.  The ladies will encourage me to get it together.

but, time will tell if I will make it.  

another block completed - I'm getting faster at the pine branches.  which is a good thing because there are several blocks worth of them.

After fighting with the rocking horse and trying to make the embroidered mane look like something other than a bald man with a comb over, I've decided to pull that block.  I arranged what I have left and I think it works better without it.  Here is the preliminary layout.  My cousin and I conferred over the weekend and agreed the Merry Christmas should be in the center.  

I still need to do the long garland block across the top, but since the size has changed some due to me adding the nutcracker and re-arranging, I need to wait until I decide on the sashing size before I do that one.  I don't want it to be the wrong size, so it will be the very last block after everything else is trimmed and pieced.  All the blocks are appliqued except for the nutcracker now.  But I've only done the embroidery on 3.  Still it's going pretty well.  There is a small chance this may even be a quilt in time for this Christmas.  MAYBE

I so do hope you are able to finish it in time for Christmas.  It is such a work of art it needs to have a place this Christmas.
