Mini Monday

Please don't fall over from shock and amazement.  I worked on my Dear Jane quilt this weekend.  I think the last time I sewed a block was probably in June before Mom died.  It is so easy to get out of the habit of working on a project, and when the momentum is gone, picking up the pieces again can be hard.
 This one is H-10.  It is called Ben's Bowties and it is paper pieced. It looks like there are 26 pieces in there.  Easy enough as far as this quilt goes.
Here is Sydney with the finished block.  Just look at how long her hair is getting!  Everything around here is crazy as usual.  Anna is in the school play and getting ready to start preseason conditioning for Lacrosse.  Ryan is loving flag football almost as much as Lego robotics.  Sydney, well she still has piano lessons though gymnastics have been lost in the shuffle lately.  I drive around a lot, but it all seems to work out in the end.

Your daughter is beautiful - love the dimple!

So glad that you have had time to sew. Your block turned out really cute.

She's grown up a bit since her picture in your header. At least she appears to be a willing model, my teen runs from the camera these days.

Very pretty blocks. Glad you were able to get some stitching in.

So glad you got some quilting time in. It does feel like we live in the car, doesn't it. I have no clue how people who work have kids in activities....and manage to get them there and get homework done.

Lovely job on that block -- and what a sweet girl 'modelling' it! :-) May there be more stitching time in your future.
