"Dear Jane Saga" continues.

Encouraging words of the day:

Let me hear of your unfailing love each morning, for I am trusting you. Show me where to walk, for I give myself to you. ~ Psalms 143:8, NLT

My "Dear Jane Saga" continues. Here are 3 more “Dear Jane” blocks completed. 


This blocks was really hard for me or I am really bad at appliqué.  Hmmmm, wonder what it could be?  I think I'll be doing this one over some time in the future.
I’ve been doing a lot of prep work on DJ blocks so I can have some hand-sewing prepared for summer trips I’ll be taking.  This takes a lonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnggg time.  One of the things that takes a while is even deciding on the fabric since I don’t really want the same colors together.  SO, I’m laying out the fabric first, then cutting out the templates for the blocks I will travel with.  Anyone have any good ideas for an alternative method?

A few giveaways I've run into: 
"Tales at Wayne Manor" is having a giveaway of a box of fabric. – ends June 1st.

"Sew How’s This?"  is celebrating 100 blog Posts  with a giveaway of  "something from Gooseberry Patch," 4 patriotic fat quarters, 2 new craft patterns, 3 new purse patterns, and 100, all cotton, 4x4 inch quilt squares. - ends May 31.

"1 Choice 4 Quilting" is having a huge giveaway consisting of fabric, jewelry, and hand creams for 10 winners. – ends May 29th.

That is all.

Oh gosh, that looks like quite the project to organize!!! Sorry that I have no suggestions.

I like the blocks that you have already done - especially the last one.
