Week 12---Passed the 40 Mark

I'm thrilled to say I passed the 40th block this week!
Number of completed blocks: 44, Pieces: 957.
I also heard some news...the Dear Jane book is on the way to the house,
signed by the author! Special thanks for the early B-day present.

This year, I'm turning 40 and wanted to give myself a precious gift: time.
I've made so little time for myself for so long. I really wasn't sure what 
to do with it until I found this project. I feel refreshed & myself again.
*BONUS* I get a gorgeous quilt, too!
What could be better?
All my best,


  1. Your blocks er beautiful, and we se life started with 40.

  2. A lovely sentiment, tiny. Thanks for your kind comments.

  3. Wow 40 blocks, for sure time is precious and we never seem to have enough of it. I've just had a little break from Dear Jane, but I find I'm itching to get back to her.

  4. Congrats on your upcoming b-day! Ive enjoyed seeing your blocks!


  5. Thank you, Pip. I think I remember something about you finishing up all 4 corners!! Not much of a break, is it? By the way, love the latest corner. It's beautiful. We're enjoying your pictures of your local wildlife as well.

    Jenn, my B-day isn't until September LOL. It's REALLY early...but I LOVE fun mail so I'm not complaining! =)

  6. Your blocks are GREAT, and forty is fabulous.

  7. I am seriously jealous of your progress!! Good for you, really. I wish I had it in me.

  8. Thank you, Michelle!

    Nanette, I'm MAKING time this year. Sometimes that means the middle of the night or first thing in the morning but a little bit each day makes a big difference. You accomplish so much on your site and this is my only big project...for now. =)

  9. Happy 40 block! You're doing great and you are so right when you say you have to MAKE time. I fell the same. Working most of the day and with a 2 year old girl it's sometimes very difficult to have time to myself and to enjoy all the things i like the most. Like quilting! I also do my very best to make time along with all the household rotines!
    Keep making gorgeous blocks!
