What's been happening in my neck of the woods

In the mail last week I received the prize I won from Capricorn Quilts, a magic little star to applique on my Once Upon a Time BOM block. Thank-you Bea!!Now I'm a wee bit behind on these as I've been distracted by a little quilt I've been making for a workmate whose due to give birth very soon. I'm pretty sure she doesn't read my blog so I can share it with you. It's a pattern by Annie Downs called "Simple Stitchings". She doesn't know the sex of the baby so I chose a mix of colours and I used fleece on the back to make it extra cuddly. Sadly my photo doesn't show the true colours...I hope she likes it!

I also completed a block for a friendship quilt and my gifts for the Christmas in July Swap, but I can't share them yet. Hope you're all having a lovely week!
