July in review

Another month has literally flown by but it was a good month. The school holidays have finally started, I enjoyed a very lovely day at the Fat Quarterly retreat and met lots of great people and I also took some time for some sewing. And for once, I feel I have been quite productive, let's have a look if it's true!

First my finishes for this month, a great total of 13 OPAMs!

15. Make  Teachers' gifts - probably keyring pouch from Heidi's tutorial - 5 key rings made for school and 2 mug rugs
18. Finish my Siblings Together quilt - finished and handed over at FQR
19. Make my sample swap items for FQR - 3 key rings ready for FQR
