My Dear Jane Journal

I have moved all the posts for my "Dear Jane" quilt to a separate Blog.

Applique used to be something I would dread. But now I find I kind of like it.
Ten years ago I started a quilt and designed one border to have applique. I never finished it.
I am thinking of getting the quilt back out and finishing it, after this weekend good results with applique.
First though I will finish this project by sewing up a new purse for summer.


One of my favorite flowers, due to the sweet scent.

Pink Hello Kitty

One headband from the bridal department, a self cover button and a few scraps of fabric and ribbon.

Mommy stuff

After all the costume sewing, I have been catching up on simpler things. I mended a few favorite shirts that were so well worn the seems were starting to unravel. I cut the front character designs off of favorite t-shirts and appliqued them on new larger shirts. I put patches over holes in the knees of jeans.

I finished one last pirate hat. But let it get away before I took a picture. It was black with a gold braid trim on the edge of the brim and a large white skull and crossbones on the front. I am sure It wont be the last hat I make (not all my friends have one yet).

I also did a little embroidery. The green version was for practice. It is just to girly for What I had in mind. The muslin one will get made into a small bag.
