Dear Jane; TR-1 Redo

Look better?  Whew!!!
TR-1 finished...again.

Dear Jane - Second Triangle

Well, that looks more like the triangles are supposed to!! This is TR-2, Australian Pines. Doesn't totally line up with the stripes, but I'm calling this one done.

Now, back to re-do TR-1 and I will remember to check my settings for each block/triangle from now on.

Dear Jane - Finished First Triangle

Hooray! Got a bit motivated to do a Dear Jane block and the TR-1 Spanish Moss was next!! Looking reasonably good, so I'm going to count it done!!!

EDIT: Yikes, forgot to change the print size--will have to redo this one!!!

Projects - New Approach

I'm just spinning my wheels and not getting anything accomplished unless I have a deadline that's not self-imposed.

I've put the boots on my April wall hanging and I'm going to do work on this for 15 minutes a day and, hopefully, it will be finished by April 2012, just not going to make this year.  I'm just going to accept it and move on to May's wall hanging--I've given myself permission and I'm not going to feel guilty about it anymore. May is flowers, imagine that???? LOL

These wall hangings are from Calendar Quilts by Kim Schaefer. These are supposed to be fusible and machine appliqued, but I just don't do it well enough so I'm doing them needleturn to get better and something to do while watching TV at night.
