June in review and goals for July

June has not been a very productive month in the sewing room really. It started with Mr Cars' First Holy Communion which turned out to be a fantastic week-end with friends and family followed a week later by a workshop on chocolate with my friend, which prompted me to spend lots of time playing with chocolate (instead of fabric!). So I tried to redeem myself towards the end of the month and tried to work through some of my list! Here is what I have managed finally to cross off.

1. Make my Siblings Together 2  May and June blocks - all done and the bee is over for this year



2. Mod Mod Along blocks: Beads on a string x 10, Star Cross x 3 and Diagonal Bars x 11 - no progress 
3. Finish off my blocks for the You've got Mail wall hanging - need 4 more envelopes - very little progress, I haven't even finished another block
4. Finish Maud's bag and my work bag - no progress
5. Catch up on my + and x blocks (12) no progress
6. Make more Farmer's Wife blocks no progress
7. Finish central medaillon of my Midnight in the Oasis and make more border blocks no progress
8. I love Lucy international block (May and June) - May done, June just started
9. Stash Bee block (May and June) - May started, June not started
10. Little Blog Bee block (June) - done

11. Bee Europa blocks (May) - started
12. Start another Triangle quilt like the Triangle Quilt Along - my NewFO challenge for June - cutting all done (285 triangles), I have decided that this one will be a Christmas present for Mum so it will needs to be finished by December and will probably be parked for now.
13. Continue working on my Cat Quilt - 4 more cats so that's 11 in the family so far

14. Start working on my Grand-Mum's birthday present with floral blocks - Lazy Bums challenge for June and this is also going to be my pick for June for A lovely Year of Finishes - centre of quilt top done
15. Make my flower hexies for the Inchy Hexie Swap - done

16. Continue working on my Once Upon a Time Sampler - steady progress on my morning commute
