I am actually doing some sewing today, it seems like ages since I have had the chance to sit at the machine and make quilt blocks. To celebrate I have put a new sharp blade into my rotary cutter, after all - it is Christmas!
I have taken some time today to count my Dear Jane pieces. As you may know, the original has her name and a count of all the pieces in the original Dear Jane quilt. It is a job I have been putting off, thinking it would be long a tedious, but no so. I also managed to find some rogue paper pieces along the way. In total I have 5163 pieces in my Dear Jane quilt. Jane Stickle had 5602. I have clearly introduced modern day efficiencies into mine. All I need to do now is to embroider the details onto the quilt. Can you think of any other cryptic messages I should include?
