As it is now the end of June I need to consider how I've done on my June goals.
There is still no movement on my main goal, to complete the top of the swoon quilt. Although the blocks go together easily they are time consuming and I find I get confused if I have to put the work away before the block is finished. I think I will leave this until August when I will be on holiday.
I set out to make a Schnibbles quilt using the Dulcinea pattern from Miss Rosie's Quilt Co.
I love the pin wheels in this design, as you look at it your attention shifts from the big colourful ones to the black and grey and finally the light ones.
My second NewFO was also a small project. I wanted to make a tote bag using some retro 'flower power' fabric I found and fell in love with.
The pattern was designed by Emma Corbett and Lisa Harper for Buttonberry. The two of them were based in Suffolk in the UK but unfortunately they gave up running Buttonberry a couple of years ago when they both had their first child.
So far I have the front and back made.
Another goal was to quilt my bird quilt. Sadly this hasn't moved at all.
Finally I wanted to work on my cross stitch. This I have been able to do and as I have alternated the two pieces both have moved forward. However I haven't done any cross stitch in the last week.
The Catitudes piece was started as a NewFO in May
I have progressed this far this month.
The millennium sampler has moved forward as well. Here's how it looked at the beginning of June.
I've finished the Santa Maria and almost finished two more squares.
Here's a close up of the area I've been working on.
St Paul's isn't quite finished and there's a lot of outline stitching to do on it.
I am linking this post up with Barbara at Cat Patches for her NewFO linky party and since I have a finish with Richard's Link a Finish Friday
I hope you had time for some sewing in June. I'm going to plan my projects for July whilst trying to work out exactly where the first half of the year has gone.
