July round up

At the beginning of July I set up a list of 10 things this summer. I tried to stick with the list. It more less concentrate on the plan I already had. Finish those things I have started and clean up a bit.
First I finished the pile of mug rugs. I made ten in total. They all cute and each one is different. Perfect little gift for any occasion. Pattern by The Patchsmith.

I cleaned up my sewing corner a bit so I was actually able to quilt there. I used to bring it over to kitchen table but not this time around. Here is what it looks like and more pics here.

#1 Diamond Tread - DONE

#2 Ballerinas quilt - not much progress

#3 Crib size quilt - DONE (I changed my plan a bit but I'm happy with the outcome so it's all righ)

#5, 6, 7 and 8 no progress what so ever so I'm gonna work on those during August
#9 Photo gallery is in progress, you can find the Quilt page up there
#10 DONE - my machine was serviced and is happily back in use

Plus I took part in this month's Le Challenge and I won it. My prize arrived already so I'll share that soon. Here's what I created for the theme Toffee.

I made some sleeping bags out of trial quilting piece and Christmas pouch for Across the Pond SAL.
