Finally making time to sew again!

Yes, it is true.  I have been absent from blogland since July.  I haven't sewn a stitch either.  I am a middle school teacher who doesn't have a prep period this year.  I am also teaching new things so it takes considerable time to create a new curriculum.  Anyway, I AM BACK!

I started sewing again this week and made up these blocks for a Christmas gift quilt.  It will be a small one and these blocks are very big - 16 inches.  I still need to make two stars and finish one.  The star/flower blocks have curved edges that I turn over and hand stitch down.  I have not yet started that.

My November goals:

1.  The quilt shown above.  It is my One Monthly Goal to completely finish this quilt - piecing, quilting, binding.

2.  Complete the last row in my Dear Jane quilt.  Just ONE MORE ROW LEFT!  YAY!  Now, that does not include the border but I am not going to piece the border.  I am only going to use colored triangles.

Hi, Deana!! Sorry work has been so all-consuming for so long. Glad you get some holiday time in the next few weeks! The gift quilt with the curved flower edges is adorable, and WOWOW on being so close to a finished Dear Jane top. I'm really hoping to quilt mine in the next calendar year.
