BOM's Away - 22 July 2012 - 2000, Jane!


http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-yBA0dP9XZiY/TdlBWrZfbOI/AAAAAAAAAcM/mjC0IDWrqZY/s1600/BOM+Button.jpg

Welcome to my Link-Up for BOMs Away Mondays!

(We'd love to see the BOM you're working on lately.)

Sometimes I crack me up.  :D


Here are the Jane Babies I finished this week. They were all from my hand-work tote.




You can see that I keep a chart and piece-count for my Rainbow Jane over on my left sidebar. Well, when I entered the piece counts for this week's finishes on the spreadsheet, it told me I was up to 1992 pieces. So tempting to round it up. But yesterday I prepped the next double-set of Babies to work on (the rest of the catch-up, by the way, woohoo!) and right now I am SICK TO DEATH of Jane. 


However, That "1992" just bugged me. It was like it was saying "Neener, neener, neener!" being so close to a perfectly even 2000. So I pulled my Jane Box out of the bureau drawer and fished out all the loose finished Babies.  






Then I gritted my teeth and sewed 8 sashing pieces on (and ONLY 8) so I could get that spreadsheet total to 2000.


Silly me.  :D    But I'm not going to sew anymore Jane stuff today. Machine or hand. She can just cool her jets for a day or two.   Maybe I'll take the family to Batman instead. And a bike ride along Cottonwood Creek Trail. And maybe we'll try some disc golf on that public course along the trail. Oh, wait - Scott says those aren't frisbies they use, but real-live golf discs, which are a little bit different. Maybe we'll have to try that some other day - Something to look forward to.


But, OH!!!!  Thursday morning we suddenly had competing offers come in on our Florida house! I was astonished at how fast it resolved into a contract on the house. So Friday we spent the day looking at the last few houses here on my list and then re-visiting our top two favorites. We put an offer in late that night. Yesterday morning I woke up to find that they had signed our offer with no quibbles!!  I am a Happy Woman.  :D  If all goes well, this will be my new front door on August 22nd:





and I'll be sewing in this basement on August 23rd:





Because let's be real - I'm not waiting until we're all unpacked to do more sewing. . .   ;D

Oh, yay, new house time!! That fell into place very quickly! The basement looks great - is it all yours, no sharing with a man cave?

And Jane...congrats on 2000! But, um, you're not even halfway on the graph. Remind me not to put Jane on my to-make list.
