Dear Jane

Focusing works!

I've managed to put the blocks together for Nearly Insane and am continuing on with the zig-zag border shown last week.  I have no picture since it's now grown too large to stay up on the design wall, so I'll just tease you with reports until I finish the top...

I also managed to get these 4 Dear Jane blocks completed.

Now I'm off to tackle the bookmark and UFO #3!

May Britt and Hanne have been doing focus projects for quite some time now and every time I've seen it, I've thought it was a great idea.  This time, I decided to play along as well.  The Christmas projects finishes really showed me what I can do if I focus.  I finished as many projects for Christmas as I did in the other 11 months of the year!

Anyways, this is what I'm wanting to focus on first...

The pink and white squares in the upper left are more Dear Jane blocks.  The red and white zig-zag is 208! blocks for the Nearly Insane border.  The fabric in the lower left hand corner is for my guild's schnibbles of the month that we're doing this year.  Next is a bookmark that Dawnie kindly gave me last year for Christmas, after a few technical difficulties, I think I'm finally on my way.  Finally, the in lower right hand corner is UFO #3, from Patchwork Penguin's UFO challenge.

We'll see how long this new focus lasts. :)
