I only found one quilt shop while away at Bordertown (apparently there are two), which stocked some lovely William Morris fabrics; and the day after coming home, sewed my fabric up into a block roll, which I will use while embarking on my own 'Dear Jane' Quilt journey this year.

I also made a small needle-book from the unused fabric length.

I am searching my sewing room for another pattern to make a small block carry around folder thingy-a-mi-jig to transport the hand-sewing blocks in, which will also be made out of this same fabric.
My two new starts for this year will be:
1. Dear Jane Quilt (with Kilmore Quilters) - new fabric purchase.
2. Seminole block [row] of the month at Morning Glory - use up stash.
My goal for 2016 year in all areas of my life is twofold - focus on what I have already started and allow serendipity to happen. If my plans don't work out, then I will do my best to follow the alternate path and not get distressed.
