Dear Jane Software - It's here!!!

Gosh, I just ordered it yesterday from The Electric Company! I am shocked because I thought I'd read that if you ordered something after 11:00 a.m. Eastern time that it wouldn't be shipped until the next day!! I ordered it well after that and it's already here the next day!!! I'm a happy camper! Great service, EQ!!! Thanks.

This means that I have to decide if I'm going to use a sewing machine to do this huge quilt! So many blocks and so many pieces. Hmmm...what do you think? Should I do one of each first? I want to start my Rainbow Jane!!!

I'm just so excited. I might have time to install this before I go get my gray removed from my hair, but I have to decide whether to install it on the laptop or desktop. I have EQ6 on my desktop, maybe I'll use up one of my four installs and put both on the laptop not sure I want to waste one of my installs or maybe I do!! Anyone ever use all four of theirs? Since the DJ software is a stand-alone software, I wonder how many places I can install it, anyone know? Maybe I won't get this done before I have to leave for the hairdresser.

This is why I never get anything done...decisions, decisions, decisions.


  1. how exciting! I wouldn't be able to do anything else but play with it!

Finished January Project

I did it!! I held off doing my first Dear Jane quilt block to finish my one project a month/January Schnibbles!!! I'm really excited to actually finish something. I think this blogging thing is starting to make me accountable for my projects.

Madeline is done! What do you think? Can't show you the quilting up close as I'm not really good yet. Too many crossovers and a few bird nests on the back creeped in. Done is definitely better than perfect, for now!! Not sure how many more quilts I need to do before I declare myself a better quilter and demand perfection.

I have so many online projects I've signed up for an bought fabric for...crazy stupid, but I couldn't decide which ones not to do!!!


Latest Project - Crayon Curtains

Well, I visited my daughter and she convinced me to sew some curtains for her daughter's pre-school classroom. It's my daughter's design, based loosely on a Pinterest photo. LOL
Here's the latest photo, what do you think?

I'll keep you updated on my progress.

I have a bunch of projects that I want to share. Just need to get an app that works to upload my pics from my iPhone or iPad, have any suggestions?  I need an easy way to upload photos and then I'll use my computer to write the blog itself. What do you use?

On the Go - More Help Needed

So, here's the quilt:

It's pretty much directional, so do I quilt my motif (taken from the appliqued elements and quilt designed in AnS) in the outside border going all around or do I do the top/bottom the same as well as the sides or do I just quilt the motif around the quilt?  Better stated, do I treat it as a wall hanging and that I want to see the cars going across the quilt at both the top and the bottom? Or not? This is why I never get anything done.  
Here's a pic of the motif (may be hard to see):

I'm using the blue thread, just have to decide, help!!!!  I know, I know, it's my quilt, but I'd love some input.
