Finally finished my table runner "August Maui Wowie" from homespun. Its taken me awhile as its all hand appliqued and quilted, but lots of fun to do. Funny how I've finished it on the last day of August and winter, which just happened to be a day for the beach with 27c temp lol
Nearly finished the fairy EEP project. Got the fairies, mushroom and centre done now just the outter to square it all up.
Now for the next project my eldests daughters quilt and my quilt which is a QAYG black n white with a hint of purple.

Got the Jungle quilt finished and now ready to be sent to my new grandson. Also got 2 mugrugs finished and the center of my fairy ring done. Next the mushrooms, ready to be cut out. Love this new Sewline glue pen I bought from http://www.busyfingerspatchwork.com/ . Its great for EPP makes it so much quicker, and I find a better edge than thread basting.
Next to do is Sarah Fielke's teacup block along for her 40th birthday. ( http://thelastpiece.typepad.com/the_last_piece/2013/07/a-birthday-quilt-along.html ) Got it all cut out and will sew it up tomorrow so hopefully will send it off to her next week. Mite get started on either my black n white quilt or my daughter Sam's quilt. Not sure yet or mite do both at once lol. Then got to get started on making some rag dolls for my granddaughter's christmas presents. Busy busy busy !

Made a hot iron bag for my daughters hair straightener and it turned out great. Pattern from www.sew4home.com http://www.sew4home.com/projects/storage-solutions/travel-accessories-curling-ironflat-iron-case
I also did two other projects that there was no pattern for and things I had never done before. A glove box organiser that goes on the outside of the glove box. A drink holder as we never can find one that works for us so we had to make one. This sits at the end of the console and big enough for 2 cokes/waters.
