Thea's quilting trials and tribulations.

Life teaches us many lessons! Some of the greatest lessons in my life have been taught to me by my quilts and the people that I have met through my quilting.

Starting Dear Jane

Well the first came and went and i didn't get to work on my Dear Jane quilt - I had pulled out the background fabric and that was it.  I was running around 102 fever most of the day.  I do not know what is wrong - just worn out and just dozed all day long.

2 January came and I pulled the fabrics - pressed my freezer paper templates on the fabrics for the 3 blocks and have them setting next to my chair ready to draw my sewing lines on and then to start hand sewing. 

What is happening in my world... well Jay is working on the pantry / storage closet ... and the bathroom -

The weather is freezing cold outside - we are forecast for below 30 degree weather for the next week... and a possibility of snow.  Politically, the nation is in a quandry - who knows who is telling the truth anymore - Jay is still out of work - the economy here is really bad. 

I will take pictures of my first blocks when they are done...

Sorry you are under the weather Thea, sounds like we are in the same place with our health. Wouldn't you think the cold would freeze all the germs and we wouldn't get sick...ha ha. It has taken me two days to even get a start but I am determined to get one block pieced today. I have the templates made and I'm ready to cut the fabric so there is a good chance I can get it done. At least my husband isn't tearing up our house, he is just disrupting the peace by watching football :) Hope Jay finds something soon.
