What is this ????

Can anyone tell me what this is ?IMG_2120

Oh I remember It's a cutting table, I haven't seen it for a while......I spent the morning putting things away, tossing stuff that is just put on it because...folded down one of the flaps turned it sideways, put 3 of those 4 drawer plastic draw sets along the wall and can now get to the cutting table easier to the right of it is the quilt frame so it will be much easier to use it now.IMG_2121

There was still room to pack a couple of tubs, and my mailing envelopes and boxes underneath.

Should be much better.!

More Dear Jane Blocks

I have finally had time to sit down with the Dear Jane Software and figure out how to print blocks and patterns . I just made 2 blocks an easy one and a fairly fiddly  foundation pieced . I am so pleased I can do it.! IMG_1947 This one is  A6 Uncle Homer
