July Challenge and Early Bird mini-gifts..

A fun week finishing off some of those 'need finishing off' items, starting new projects to go in the 'for stitching' box and happy afternoons stitching with friends round cups of tea and plates of fruit cake.....  Well, it has been a bit damp so what else should one be doing??

Thursday is my usual 'shopping day' and I have discovered a cure to the tedium of grocery shopping - pick up widget to entertain me.......... tired, but happy............

In an earlier blog I was trying out Dresden plates..... I especially wanted a 12 point one for the hours of my clock..............

This is the last of my July Challenges (Home Decor in 2 colours) - part of the Early Bird Christmas Crafters....  which is being hosted by Judith at Creative Studio.    Judith always has HEAPS of ideas and inspiration......

I did finish off these Early Bird mini gifts.............

The ladybird bug is my adaption from the little Bitty Bug pincushion designed by Goody Goody.  Goody Goody has lots of lovely ideas......I have fabric to make the rest of the family!!! 

These pretty Christmas Ornament Birdie's are designed by Robyn at Daisy Quilts.  Robyn has a free pattern available but I warn you - they are a little bit addictive!! 

Now to get to the 'wish for' box .................
Hugz to you all..................
