Christmas in July

This Friday night my Friday night sit n sew group are meeting for a Christmas in July dinner and as part the celebration we are swapping a small Christmas present.  The rules are simple, the gift should be handmade and be a needle necessity.  So I have been madly stitching the front cover for a little booklet that will made, somehow, before Friday.  I love the stitchery so much that I am thinking of making a few more...

An Angels Story - June

I am not sure how it has happened... but I seem to be in front of the Challenge.  Others have lost the love or have just been too busy.  Either way I am happy (Ha!) but with five months to go I need to keep my game face on and keep working...
And here is a little sneak peak of July's block, I got heaps of sewing done at the monthly quilt group meeting.

Fairyland - my 'in between' project

I have been writing several months now about my in between challenge group project.  Well I can finally reveal that I have been working on Fairyland by Natalie Bird.  I started this a few years ago and it has been sitting on my UFO list ever since.  I don't know why, but this project seemed such a slow project but I am flying through it now!  Here are some photos of the first few finished blocks.  At present I am not working on a block per month like I am with challenge group.  This project is my pick up and put down task.  Whenever I have time and have finished An Angels Story early I get stuck into another block of Fairyland.  What do you think so far...

People have spoken... well voted!

After voting there are two quilts that are strong options, one has 86% of the votes and the other has 67% of the votes.  I have listed (in no particular order) all the quilts that received a vote or votes.  Which one do you think is out in front?
