We had our Dear Jane group today and had our belated Christmas party.  All during the year, at each of our meetings,  if we've completed a DJ block, we put our name in the pot.  If we've done 5, we get our name in twice.  Then, at the Dec. meeting, our fearless leader, Barb, draws names and gives away little prizes.  Only thing is you MUST be present to WIN!!  So, we ate our goodies, showed our show and tell and patiently waited for Barb to draw names.  The two pix above are Jane showing off her in progress DJ (she has all the blocks done and is putting it together) and Barb with her little 'challenge' project which is now going to be a class at Quilter's Dream (she was still putting the flower center buttons on).  We even had a visitor today, Charlotte all the way from New Hampshire, who stopped in for some inspiration.  It was a fun day and Barb had lots of cute little goodies.  I won the most DARLING pincushion made by one of our group members which I will post a pix of later.  She is SO talented and has done a number of adorable patterns.  I LOVE my pincushion!!  It even has a little pocket to hold your thimble.

That sounds like a fun group and a great way to keep you making blocks. My Dear Jane journey is set for 4 years, at one block a week. Just a little under 3 years to go! I set up a blog called A Quilter's Journey Back in Time, to keep me focused. So far, so good!
