Dear Jane — Insanity, quilts

No news today.  I spent part of the day working outside and part of the day reading.  I still have part of my book to finish – maybe a quarter of it?  I’ve been good though and not spending hours on end just reading 🙂

I need to get another Dear Jane block prepped and ready to work on.  One thing I had been working on the last couple of days was putting a label and a wall hanging sleeve on the first Dear Jane “Insanity”.  I had finished it you know back in November but never got around to putting the sleeve and label on it.  I plan on delivering it to Melanie and Ric soon so really needed to get that done.  They plan on hanging it on a wall as they have a dog who believes she is mistress of the house and sleeps on the bed and the couch so they do not want to put it where Patty could sleep on it and possibly damage it without really meaning to —  I got the sleeve and label on so now that is finished.  I am caught up on labels.  I used to do that immediately after finishing a quilt but this past year I have been lazy 🙁

I have been reading a lot of blogs lately and my reader has so many on it it is pitiful.  I need to go through it and start culling out the ones that rarely blog and cut it back somewhat.  I have never gotten more than 120 on my reader but that is way too many blogs to keep up with!!  Especially when we travel and I’m not on the computer so much.  Then I tend to run through it and look for the ones I am in the most touch with the authors and the rest I just delete.   When we travel I need to try to get that reader down under 50! (hmm I wonder if I can do that – probably not).

Time to get off of here and get a DJ block prepped to work on while Criminal Minds is on tonight!

    I know what you mean about cutting back on blogs that don’t blog much. I’ve had to do that too and I felt guilty, but it is hard to keep up with so many.

    The up side is that my quilting blogs are like my quilting buddies online. I don’t have anyone to quilt with around here so it’s good for that.

    Enjoy your book:)

    I only read about 5 blogs… and I find it hard to stay up with those! But I do so enjoy them, and would love to read more, but then I’d never get anything done.

    Yep culling out blogs is hard. I have around 50 and rarely add a new one on. Not everyone blogs every day so only read 15-20 a day…a good number to read while I do my morning chores….I take lots of breaks doing morning chores LOL.

    I know what you mean…I tend to read blogs only once or twice a week-if I didn’t I’d never get any sewing done. I do scroll down to see what people have been up to while I haven’t be reading. Some blogs I visit even less frequently. I try to stop off here and see what you’ve been up to because you always do so much and I feel I’ve missed out on stuff…for example-I love the light table. Great idea to use the little book light.

    I spend way too much time on the computer. I just love looking around at blogs. My problem is that I’ll start reading one and then look at the ones they have on their reading list and keep finding so many great blogs and great projects. Not much discipline here. lol
