goodbye July and HELLO August ....

July is done....

I finished off a few projects .....
(8 for OPAM and 2 were UFO's)


Christmas Mug Rug, StitchALong friendship cushion,
Apple Core baby quilts, flower bouquet cushion, 
Angel Candle-mat,  Glasses case, Santa Sack

The last few evenings I have been blanket stitching my fusion blanket blocks
tutorial from HERE


and a bit of crochet on them


I am making 30 blocks altogether

but now I need to give it a break and stitch a gift ...


or two .....


I love receiving hand made items.... and I get a lot of enjoyment out of making them
it's great to see that hand made clothes are becoming more popular

are you in a swap?  maybe one of these is for you?

Sue is holding a Cushion Swap - registration over HERE if you are interested
I'm still debating with myself!

Righto, Gotta Go... those gifts aren't going to sew themselves
