White Rabbit List for June


Last month I decided to join in with a number of other bloggers and write myself a "To Do" list for June.  I decided that each month I would try my hardest to get as many crossed off the list as possible.  So how did I go?  Well I am pleased with my result considering that our lives have been turned upside down pretty much throughout June. In attempting to rid myself of so many UFO's I decided that each month I would add one to my list in the hope that I could actually get some finished !  Well I am pleased to report that I have finished Amy's post & rail quilt.


It has returned from being quilted and now just needs it's  binding sewn on.  Amy is thrilled with it and I am pretty pleased to be able to remove it from the pile of UFO's.


I also managed to finish 2 more blocks for my Tis The Season Quilt.  I haven't put the borders on them yet put they are on my list for the weekend.


I made progress with Block 2 of "Berries & Blueberries"


I am really enjoying this one - The birdies are just so cute.


And Block 4 of Henrietta's Whiskers just needs 20 minutes spent on it which I will finish tonight.


Block 1 of my "It's The Little Things That Matter" BOM Quilt is finished and Block 2 is underway.


3 Items were finished for Magazine Commissions


Including this "Easy Peasy" Chenille Quilt


Which used up some of my treasured Grand Revival stash - It was so hard to actually cut into it - But I was pleased with the result.


I also finished this little throw cushion as well as a kitty cat Tote bag and Cushion which I donated at the last cat show but forgot to photograph.  So I am not going to be too hard on myself as I set the bar pretty high knowing that I wouldn't achieve the entire list but it really did help with motivation so if you are thinking about doing it too - Go for it !

I am now off to write up July's list on my side bar - The hardest thing is going to be choosing which UFO is next to go !!

Well done Fee you are flying with all your projects. I don't no which one I like the most they are all beautiful.

I love all your work, so beautiful. I was looking at all your BOM's as I am doing some of the same ones. 'It's The Little Things That Matter' is one I would like to do, not that I need another BOM to do. Where did you find this little gem or is it one of yours that I have missed?
