Almost caught up!

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
I also finished off and mailed my Friendship Bag – I changed gears somewhat and didn’t do the red/white/black one as it was coming out too big.  I’ll finish it off and use it as a purse!
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!
Inchie experiments 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!
Happy quilting!

Your bunny hill blocks are turning out beautifully! You will have a lovely quilt at the end of the year. The bag is so cute, too. You're getting so much accomplished!

I can't wait to see that dress finished. What a huge project!

Have fun on your trip. The weather is supposed to be nice here in Alberta over the next few days!

Your blocks are very sweet and your Friendship Bag is gorgeous! You have more backbone than me, though, because I chickened out on the inchie swap myself!

Good work on the Bunny Hill BOMs. I'm way behind but will catch up. Your friendship bag is terrific! Lucky recipient. I'm making mine this weekend. Enjoy your camping trip. Ann :)
