Relax and Enjoy

 001 

Now that Christmas sewing is over, it’s great to be back at work on my Dear Jane blocks.  They are such sweet little things.  I started to plan my progress for finishing them all but quickly put a stop to that kind of thinking.  Instead, I am going to just relax and enjoy my time with each block, love the process and not worry about anything else.  So far they are fun and I want to keep it that way.

OMG Annette, they're beautiful. Little mini works of art! I really love your colour choices. Isn't this quilt so much fun and satisfying at the same time? I don't think I've done any of these blocks yet :)

Thats my kind of thinking when I do a project of this magnitude! Relax and enjoy the creative process!

Great attitude, Annette, especially with a project of that magnitude. I'm sure that now the journey will be more enjoyable.

They're just darling, aren't they?

Oh, I love these blocks. They make me happy and think of spring. I'm so envious of your attitude, I do think that's the way to go! I'll be eager to see more.

You are good. You are really good. And I know how good because I've made some of these and mine are Not like yours.

Sweet is right! And I love how you set up/framed your photo of them. That appliqued red block on top is my favorite of this bunch, although I imagine it was the hardest to do. Good for you, not pressuring yourself to finish these on a timeline. Blocks that sweet need to be savored, not rushed through.

Love your blocks. They do look fun to make.

I love the fabrics you are using for your Dear Jane. I've wanted to make one for the longest time - it's just another quilt added to the list!
