I’m surprised I remember how to sew. It has been a long time. This is Dear Jane C-8.

These are M-9 and L-11. I tried to take this picture with my new phone. That worked ok. Then I tried to send it to flickr. That didn’t. The problem is that my new Droid II is smarter than me and it knows it. I didn’t sacrifice a chicken or chant to the right gods [...]
Remember my stairs? That is mid-way through the destruction phase. And the upstairs hall? Look what they’ve turned into so far! The ugly blue carpet is gone. The 10 bajillion staples were removed and the staple holes filled. The stains were banished with linseed oil and steel wool. When we go away in November the [...]
It hurts to sew! After my 2 hour personal workout class yesterday my obliques hurt. I went to a yoga class this morning to see if I could get it all stretched out. I wasn’t happy with the class.

I made more Dear Jane blocks today. The star block center is bugging me but I don’t feel like tearing it out. That center star is tiny (the whole block is only 5 inches) so just having it shift a bit during sewing made me cut off the points. These are blocks B-10 and G-6.
I sewed more Dear Jane blocks today. I think half the fun for me is to take the horrible directions that my friends have and figure out easier ways to do them. They took the class from a woman who believed that every block was better if you could figure a way to get some [...]
Today’s Workout – Ran 1.5 miles and walked 1 mile (warm up and cool down – getting to where I wanted to run and getting back) I decided that I should go out and run on a flatter part of the park which is mostly mowed grass trails. I could work on some speed then. [...]
