Our meeting and workshop with Bonnie was great. She was so funny and full of information. It is always sad to see a teacher go home. We just wished she could have stayed and played a few more days. After seeing her Dear Jane my friend Barb and I are going to start on our own Dear Jane. Hers is actually chocolate brown and pink but it photographs black. I bought my book at least 8 years ago and had it in the back of my mind that one day I would attempt this quilt. Now it feels like it is time. Who knows how fast I will go but I am making 2. That way my kids will both have one. One will be Civil War repros and the other will be a batik. If I am sitting down making one block why can't I do 2. It makes sense in my head! Hopefully this will be something I can keep on the blog and show you my progress. I need to learn how to put more info on my blog. I do have Bonnie's permission to put these pics on my blog.
Things are kinda returning to normal around here so I will be getting some projects done.
