13 UFO's in 2013. Family Birthday.

Today I completed the second mini quilt that is part of my finish for 13 UFO's in 2013 for June hosted by Marti. You can check out her blog by clicking on the icon on my side-bar. Photos of every one's finished items won't be up quite yet as the USA has one more day up their sleeve.
In 2011 when in the USA, I bought 2 small Nancy Halvorsen calendar quilt kits and a Quilt Table Top Hanger for them to be displayed on. I have had the kits cut out and half prepared but just didn't get to finish them until now. Below are my mini quilts for October and December.  Thanks Marti for your encouragement  to get some of my UFO's completed.

On Saturday, we had a family birthday barbecue get together minus a few grandchildren as Jake is up with his Mum and brother Tom on school holidays and my grand-daughter Kiah was working. We had an ice cream cake though as we are still all kids at heart and everyone likes looking for the chocolate Freddo frogs hidden in the ice cream. Happy birthday to my son Scott and his girlfriend Rowan who both celebrate their birthdays within  6 days of each other next week.

Today it has been raining all day and quite cold with a bit more rain tomorrow so the winter woollies are well and truly out. Well that is all from me tonight. I will be finishing off my Xmas in July gifts this week ready to be sent on the 15 th.     Have a great week stitching...............Hugs.......

  9. Great minis Noela. I think I need to spend some time working on a few machine projects instead of having my head stuck in all things woolly. But I have been plodding along nicely on the santa sack swap.
