(if you want, you can skip to the bottom to see who the winner of this Bunny Hill
Windsor Lane fat quarter bundle is... or save it for a surprise latter.)
Last Wednesday was Summer Solstice and Thelma
came up with a plan to work on several projects.
She called her list her Summer Fun!
I want to join in the Summer Fun and
I started my list of projects:
My first ever SERIOUS applique project!
I have had this book since it came out... but now it's time to tackle it!
Next on my list is this quilt.
Le Petit from Fig Tree Quilts
It is taking me forever to sew those handles on the baskets...
it has traveled with me every where this year so far and now it's
ready to assemble. That is with one drawback. Somewhere in my travels
I have lost two blocks. The good news is that while I was rummaging through
things trying to decide what to put on my Summer Fun list...
I found one of the blocks. And even though that seems better than thinking
that the blocks got lost in some hospital waiting room or fell out of my car...
somehow, knowing that it is somewhere in my sewing room... doesn't give me
any greater hope of finding it.
My next project is the Dolly Dresses panel.
My plan is to embellish a dress with a theme for each month .
Next, I need to finish this Yoyoville, from Bunny Hill, once and for all.
This is another case where I lost the houses for the border...
you guessed it...
somewhere in my sewing room!
My guess is that while I was ":cleaning up" I threw them out.
So I need to give up looking, pull up my big girl panties, start over and make new houses.
Dancing Dollies is also on my list.
I started cutting this one out to make it up in Holiday fabrics... but then I saw this one...
(This is from Boughs of Holly blog/Holly Hill Quilt Shop
by the way... tons of inspiration there)
and now I want to do both!
Maybe I should just do a smaller version of both and that would equal one!
This will be my 347th Fig Tree project... does that qualify me to be a Joanna groupie???
I have these two jelly rolls set aside to make
lap quilts for a couple of wounded soldiers that I made friends with
earlier this year while at the VA hospital. This is something to do that is very close to my
heart and I would like to work on these first.
I have been wanting to make a new summer purse too.
A must on my Summer Fun list!
But now there is one more thing I HAVE to add to my list...
I am in love! Bounce is in the house!
I know I am going to seem like a Thelma groupie now...
but seriously... I have to do this one!
You saw hers didn't you? The only thing holding me back is that
I might have to wait for the fabric I want to use... it hasn't been released yet.
We already know that I am a Miss Rosie groupie... that ship has sailed! No hope there.
Now it's time to pick the June winner for the BOM REHAB!!!!
Anne of Bunny Hill Designs was absolutely wonderful to donate the prize for us
this month! This is Windsor Lane. It's her new fabric line... coming soon to a store near you!
But one lucky person doesn't have to wait....
Carol from Carol's Crafty Creations is the
winner of the Windsor Lane fabric bundle!
Oh wait... I forgot to mention two more for my Summer Fun list...
I want to finish Swoon (only one block completed) and also make French Vintage!
