I got two more Dear Jane blocks done. A3 was more challenging than it looked - this is try #2. The first time my outer circle was all wonky - this time I traced around the outer circle onto the background fabric, then appliqued the melons on - they all make a nice outer circle now. 432 pieces to date.
My day job is going to get busy over the next little while so I think I'm going to lose some of my weekday sewing time. This is disappointing, but a necessary evil so I can continue to fund my fabric and sewing habit.
