    I don't think so, but best to check with Klue. I think as long as the six weeks worth of blocks are posted at the *end* of the six week period then you're still in the draw. :-)

    And there's no punishment if you don't make a deadline, just a small penalty of a chocolate fish, payable to me. ;-)
    blue is absolutely right.

    i don't care when you get the allotted set of blocks done.

    to be entered in the fabric give aways just have all your pics up by that very last work day for the period.

    for example: the last work day of this first 6 week period is February 14th 2010.

    now with that said, i'm a firm believer in trying 3 times and then just excepting it and moving on.

    we have 225 blocks to make and you just can't stress over every little thing.

    we have a built in "week off" every 6 weeks. the purpose of this time was for people to go back and fix a block that they don't like, to work on another project, or to just enjoy some time away from sewing.

    so, try 3 times, if you still don't like it set it aside and you can come back to it on february 15th 2010 - if it still bothers you so much.

    Breaking News...I am reporting the first case of Jane-related injuries. Yes, INJURIES.

    I'm having one of those "off" days & didn't plan to quilt because we all know how that usually goes. I rushed through cooking dinner to make time to piece & burned the inside of my thumb. NO problem...cold water & I'm off to quilt... Picking up my tiny scissors to get some strings out of the way before pressing, I opened them, hit the burn & stabbed my first finger! They say Jane is blood, sweat, and tears. I'm marking blood off my to list, Jane. So far, I think I'm on the right track LOL.
    LOL

    one down and 2 to go (sweat and tears).

    lets hope the tears are at the end when its done and your crying for joy.

    Wow sweetie, it sure sounds like you're going through a rough time. (((hugs))) I'm glad you are still hanging in there.

    Welcome Wilhelmina!

    Remember, your saliva is great for getting blood out of fabric so when you suck on your block to remove the blood, add spit to that blood, sweat, and tears list. :wink:

    Isn't that frustrating.... we had guests most of yesterday and last night, friends of hubby's more than mine, and I'm being polite and having conversation and all I could think was "hurry up and leave so I can put my pj's on and sew before bed!"
