The coming weeks Juud and I will be working real hard on our Dear Jane Quilt. We might even make some real progress. It is so much more fun, stitching together. And, it becomes even more fun when others join, virtually. Juud is real ‘vet cool’ (Dutch youth slang) & a very ‘hippe’ woman. See her here twitting with her sister who was showing her progress on her Dear Jane?
Juud is into social media even more than me!! ‘LZ’ has completed the first route and even put on the sashings!! Some pictures were exchanged. Who would have thought that these modern women would enjoy practising such an old craft and also love using social media.
As you can see, looking closer to my hands we are not getting any younger. Lots of wrinkles appearing!! But we act young!!
As mentioned in the header I started on the G8 and have nearly completed this little baby. Another hour and I can show you her.
We were so enthusiastic that we started (dreaming) planning on finishing this quilt. ‘’Imagine if we made 5 blocks a week, we would have this quilt finished next year July. No, no, this is a too unrealistic goal. How about 4 blocks a month? Yes, that is attainable. But this would mean we would have our Dear Jane completed in 4.5 years!! No that can’t be right. Back to math. Yes, the math is correct, it would really takes us that long.’’ So after a little discussion, I regret to have to inform you, that you will be reading about our progress for a long time. But any way, to speed up the progress we planned some extra bee’s for the summer. We don’t want to fall too much behind, as LZ (Juud’s sister) is on a roll.
