end of June.....


Half of the year has gone by.....

June has seen these projects finished for me....

A Kathy Schmidtz wallhanging .... which I just loved making


... a bunch of mesh bags.... which were a bit boring if I am honest.... but useful....


.... and my Tool caddy, which was fiddly, but I love my lizards and it is very useful....


So thats my OPAM projects, thanks Kris and Peg for hosting

... and I have continued with blocks for my Dutch Treat UFO..... 



... and those are my Finishing Stitches projects... thanks for hosting Joy

A couple of wet days and these Apostle birds came into the veranda to dry off.... they are silly birds and don't stop chattering.... but they always make me laugh.  They march around the house cleaning up whatever they can find ... then generally make a nuisance of themselves around the neighbourhood


Lovely mail this week all the way from UK .... don't you love how it was personalised with the decorations of the envelope....


... and inside a special teatowel..... this is our little Matilda..... there is another in her class so she is Matilda R


 My design wall is looking like this at the moment.... that block with the aqua square is the latest in the Moda Blockheads weekly ones, also circles, Angel Story, Flowervill, mini baskets, Dutch Treat and My Small World...

Anybody get the idea I have a short attention span????



Righto, Gotto Go..... the weekend is here for enjoyment....

Hope you have a wonderful one

Love all your finishes and gorgeous blocks on your design wall there. The Apostle birds are so funny. They remind me of grumpy old ladies telling everyone off lol! I think your special parcel is just gorgeous xx

That is such a cute tea towel and a treasure.

That's not a bad month's finishes, well done! The tea towel is a good idea, if you don;t want to get it grubby in the kitchen it would make a cute cushion.

KaHolly said...

ALL delightful projects! Your stitchery is magnificent! I cannot wait until you put all your Dutch Treat blocks together. I’m very intrigued by that project. Such fun mail! Aren’t you the lucky one?

Peg - Happy In Quilting said...

Awesome projects and precious mai❤️❤️❤️

Maria said...

Lovely stitchery and some great useful one..
Nice progress with you DT blocks and all your other projects..
What a fabulous decorative envelope from your UK family..Matilda.s tea towel is so special.
Don't think we have Apostle birds they sound funny.

Lots to show for the month. The class tea towels must be a UK thing. I had a pen friend who was a teacher and she sent me one years ago. We love seeing apostle birds when we are travelling, as we don’t get them here. They are so entertaining. Their manner is quite similar to choughs, which were one of our favourite birds when we lived out of town. We miss their antics. I’m envious of your design wall. It’s fun to see your WIPs up there. While they’re on show and you are making progress all is well. Remember, variety is the spice of life.

I've been printing out the Blockheads' pattern with the intention of getting at them but.......vintage seems to win out! Love that stitchery....so cute!!! Busy gal, you are!!! The high temps outside challenge the coolness inside...even with central air, one can feel the warmth threatening!! Storms later today will, hopefully, break the heat but not bring unwanted damage! Hugs............

Chantal said...

What your design wall is telling me is that you have many talents and you are pursuing all of them. Hope July be just as nice to you. ;^)

Jeanette said...

Wonderful special mail..we have a similar t towel from whn the boys were in primary school, still going strong. 😆 I haven't heard of the apsotle birds before.
