Design Wall Monday 6/18/2012

It is really hard for me to post a Design wall...its seems it is always Dear Jane but what can I do...except for hurry up and finish them I suppose.

I was finally able to sew together rows B, C, D to that was really nice.  It finally feels like with all of this time spent on these blocks progress is being made.  I think once I finish the blocks for July (I only have 4 more to go) I will skip ahead and finish that one A block I have left so that I can sew that row on as well.

I even fixed my wall and put up the June wall hanging, figured it was finally time to take down April. I even brought down July so that maybe I can get that one up in time as well.

I also finished my Birds Eye View BOM blocks that I had originally cut double the amount.. I think it was month 9...so that one is on the back burner for awhile.

Yesterday I worked in the yard...I had to plant 3 lily flowers and then paint a sealant on 10 pieces of wood that we are using as the border for the yard. I found out today that I need at least 4 more which means more painting.  I am not too happy with that for sure.  I am still suffering with pains in my bum from muscles that I didn't know existed are becoming known.  I'm fine as long as I don't sit, stand or walk.  Oh well...it was worth it, the yard is starting to look a little bit better.

For more design walls head on over to Judy's.

Have a wonderful week everyone.

Come on back this week for more craziness from my humble abode.



  1. Love the colorway you are using for your DJ. And your June quilt is so nice! Love those hollyhocks in it. Look forward to a shot of your yard. Looks like you'll have to paint those last pieces of wood lying down - lol.

  2. 'chelle, your Dear Jane is looking spectacular! Stay with it, we want to see the finished quilt!

  3. Your Dear Jane is coming a long nicely. I did lots of weeding and also have a few hurting muscles in the back of my legs and butt. We just need to do more.

  4. You just can't rush Dear Jane, the time it takes is the time it takes....but yours is so worth it!

  5. Thanks everyone for the kind comments. The process is long but I know it will be worth it in the end. I just have to keep reminding myself of that.

  6. Lol, you used "Dear Jane" and "hurry up" in the same sentence :) Your colors look wonderful. And that June wall hanging is just super sweet.

  7. OMG...I never thought of it that way...I hope when I start farmers wife it will go quicker...that's next year though...still gotta get through this one...

  8. I love your Dear Jane. Everyone is right, she will get done in her own time. Mine took two years to piece and I felt like I was DRIVEN to get it done. I took blocks everywhere with me so almost half of my Jane is hand-pieced. I know others who finished theirs in a matter of months! I guess they were driven by a faster engine .
