and the holidays are over....

Sadly the holidays have come to an end. Just the normal weekend to pass and then back to the grind.
Time to revisit my list....

  • finish the three  two two sides of binding on last baby throw
  • put border on Life is Beautiful quilt done
  • decide and start on the backing of LIB quilt needs some further thought
  • put border on Heart and Home quilt at quilters
  • catch up on Sweet Nostalgia stitcheries (am up to June's now)
  • do some hexagon borders-have done two rows of cream borders and some new hexies
  • embroider monogram for christening gown- found the book I need for the design done!
Not looking too bad! I think I am happy with that.
Now how am I going to get up early on Monday morning in time for work?
It has been a very relaxing holiday and I have enjoyed it heaps. 

I have spied a new project starting on the 20th July over at Kaaren's blog. Earlier this year she designed and stitched a Raggedy Anne and Andy quilt. The stitcheries are just gorgeous and she is generously offering it as a bom.
I made a raggedy Anne quilt a few years ago but donated the top to the Bush fire victims. I never heard if it was donated or not but am assuming it was. I am looking forward to Kaaren's bom so I can make another quilt for myself.
Here is the one I made.  The photos aren't the best I am afraid.
Here are some cyclamen pics, one of my favourite plants. There is a story behind these flowers but perhaps another time.

Have a great weekend.

Your cyclamens are lovely - and thanks for the heads up at Kaaren's blog - I would love to do some Raggedy Anne's for my granddaughter...... Hugz from Bubz

Don't worry Marina, the next holidays aren't too far away. And look at that list - well done.
Raggedy Anne caught my eye too but do I need another project? No but that hasn't stopped me before.
Head up and back straight and face your Monday with attitude!

That Raggedy quilt sure is sweet, I bet it is now a treasured possession.

Glad you had a productive break from the everyday grind.

So happy you enjoyed my tour! Next week end get ready for part two!

Wow, your list is very long....
I love your Raggedy Anne and Andy quilt. You used some of my favorite colors. I'm sure it was donated. it's so cute!
I wish you a good week.

Oh, your quilt is so pretty. Such a very nice donation for someone. I remember seeing Kaaren's quilt and you will have fun making it too. She is so talented.
