My New Addition

My old Singer that I've had since who knows when finally broke (*waaaahhhhh*) and so I had to get a new portable, something to take with me to do wedding alterations and so on... So here is my new Singer and even though it's digital (*sigh*)I think I can work with it. It seems very smooth and efficient but I'm not crazy about digital. Oh well, whatever works, right?

I also have had some time to hand sew some more Jane blocks and here they are. I love piecing Jane blocks it's so much fun and they turn out like little jewels.

May your needles always be sharp!!!! Bye!!!

Tissy-Jane 4-1-0-115!!!!!

Well I took the opportunity (while my power was out)to hand stitch some Jane blocks from my new Jane book... I have decided that I am going to try to enjoy the making of my first Jane quilt as she did. No machine stitching at all. Then maybe I'll add some of my flair to the next one. I am trying to stay as close to the color scheme and patterns with some shirtings. I would like to be as proud of this quilt as Jane was of hers. I love all the little pieces and can honestly say that I have never...even with crumb piecing...worked with as little pieces as some of these are and it is a great and fun challenge. I am glad to now be part of the Janiac experience!!!!
