Slowdown on Sunday

 I made lots of good progress on Dear Jane this week at my teacher test writing getaway.  It did leave me with a backlog of hand sewing though which I will enjoy working on today.  Hand sewing sounds just perfect as I have taken my machine in to the shop.  Driving it back and forth to Jacksonville knocked something loose inside and it is making a funny noise.  I borrowed Anna's machine, but she seems to have lost the quarter inch foot that fits on it.
After I finish off the applique for the 8 blocks in waiting, it looks like there are 12 more blocks in the center section.  I've procrastinated the triangles for the most part, so those will need to be next on the list.  I might go through and see if there are some nice applique only blocks to cross off the list.
I'll link this post up with Slow Stitching Sunday at Kathy's Quilts.  Head over with a nice cup of tea to see what handwork everyone is up to today.


The count so far:
169 blocks with
15 triangles
4 kites
3537 pieces

Oh no...I hope the machine just requires a simple repair.

A day of hand stitching sounds lovely to me. Enjoy!

So sorry to hear your machine is under the weather. Hopefully she can come home soon! In the mean time enjoy your hand stitching!

I just love how organized you are. I think that's the key to making progress on anything, if you have everything you need ready when you have a bit of time to stitch.
Enjoy! Thanks for linking up!

I hope your sewing machine "baby" is fixed quickly and easily! It's been a treat to watch your Jane progress over the year.
