Starting the countdown

002

Sewed the binding on to my Red Home quilt today.  So happy it is almost finished.  And now I have started to handquilt my Antique Sampler.

But there is something else important that I have to do now……..

003

Long long time ago I started to sew Dear Jane, so today I opened the box to have a look at it.

004

I had almost 70 blocks done and a lot of the triangles too, but they are so NOT in my colours right now. 

005

So I have picked out the blocks i fancy the most.  Of course it had to be the red ones.  And I am going to use them to make a bag, because…………………

006

in only 27 days Hanne and I are on the plane to USA.  My first trip “over there” and I am so looking forward to it.  And of course I have to have a DJ bag when going to the DJ reatreat in Shipshewana.

I’ve heard that this is going to be the biggest DJ reatreat in Shipshewana, and I guess there is a lot of blogging friends coming there. Will be so fun to meet you.

Saying for today:

I'm so excited for you and can't wait to meet you face to face on 22 November. My kids grew up over the last 14 years going to the Dear Jane Retreats with mom. Someone asked me the other day what grade they were in. Uh graduated with masters degree. They grew up so fast. Elaine does a fantastic super woman job keeping the DJ spirit alive!
