July has arrived and it’s time for me to record my Jane Stickle progress for June, file the blocks away and do some record keeping. I really pushed last month and managed to complete 27 blocks and border triangles. When I did some checking early in the month, I discovered I had a lot more catch up to do in order to be at the 13-month pace set by Doreen. Some of these blocks are from her June tutorials, many are do-overs or catch-up blocks and there are a couple of bonus blocks thrown in. I know the next nine months will provide some life interruptions, and I wanted to create just a little cushion.
If I counted correctly, I now have 58 center blocks of 169 and 15 border blocks of 52 completed. I finally set up a spread sheet to help me visually track my Jane Stickle progress. Our 13 month journey began March 1, so we have completed four months.
I hope that now that I really am caught up with the pace, I can work in some other projects that aren’t quite as intense. This week, however, needs to be spent in some serious house cleaning. We will be entertaining two separate groups during the first half of July.
