Living the life and praising God on a dairy farm in Northern Victoria PLUS quilting, knitting, church stuff and of course stuff about family (especially my granddaughters Mia and Maddison)

revisiting/resurrecting an old friend
Today I had a rare few hours by myself - Gary had gone to play bowls and I had nothing I had to do while he was gone, so decided to dig through my ufos. Guess what I found? One of the two dear janes I have been working on VERY spasmodically. This one I've been working on since 2006. Don't think I've touched it for two years but today I got to see the light of day.
It's not the complete quilt but about 2/3rds of it and I'm doing storm at sea sashings.
After spending a good half an hour working out exactly where I was up to I managed to get six of the cornerstone blocks done, as well as printing out a heap of foundation papers and sorting out what went where. Mind you I had to actually force, and I mean force, myself to start doing this, but once I got going I got into the swing of things and really enjoyed myself. I'm going to try and keep going and actually get this one finished sometime in the nearish future.
