Dear Jane blocks

I've spent some time catching up on my Dear Jane blocks today. Here is A-6...



And A-7...


And B-3...


It was a dismal day here, perfect for hiding in the sewing room. Yesterday I got out and did some yard work, my flower beds are raked and ready for some planting. I'm not sure what or if I'll be planting much, the deer eat everything I plant. Any suggestions for some deer safe plants or shrubs? Something with large thorns, perhaps? I do plan to move my English roses out front, it's sunny and the deer leave them alone. Beyond that, I'm thinking I'll have some lovely beds that are just mulched, with nothing in them!

Carolyn, You could always have a cactus garden lol. I wouldn't have thought about the deer eating things, but I guess they only eat plants right? I guess you'll just have to have a million roses.
Your DJ blocks look so nice. You make them look effortless! I really can't wait to see how those beautiful fabrics start to come together. If I find some plants the deer dont eat I will let you know :) Love Stacy

I just love the fabrics you are using for your DJ. I'm feeling like I need to be making some more blocks too.
