I’ve been working away like a demon on my Bunny Hill A Tisket A Tasket BOMs, and I’m almost caught up! Here’s my progress to date this week. Just two left, and I’ll be caught up! I did them a little out of order – July is missing here, but it is coming! and I still have a little embroidery and some embellishments to finish off. You can see everyone's accomplishments here
Here’s what I ended up doing, stuffing with some goodies, and dropping in the mail to go south and east! Hope they enjoy it.
and, being a glutton for punishment, I signed up for yet another swap – this time an Inchies Ornament swap hosted by the Quilting Gallery. Was doing some testing to make sure I understood the directions, and this is what I came up with. More fine tuning and embellishment to follow. Fiddly, but I think I’m going to get addicted!
The Irish Dance dress has been taking a bit of a back seat to all this other fun, but I’ll get back to it soon! I think there will be some quilting and maybe a Loonie Blooms quilt created before it gets finished, though. Marlene has posted all the instructions and diagrams for this cute little wall hanging - go check it out at Sipiweski Quilt Designs.
Next Monday we’re off for a couple of weeks of camping – south eastern British Columbia and south western Alberta, so I have to sort out what handwork I’ll be taking with me, and find out what quilt shops I’m going to hit along the way.
To my mystery Friendship Bag swapper – please be patient - if your bag arrives and I do not respond right away, its only because I’m not home to receive it!
Oh, and I’ve also been playing with the Windows Live Writer – definitely easier to add and manipulate pictures, but I still have a lot to learn.
What Comes Next? A walk in the rain with my dog!
