My list of UFOs was shrinking until I started getting ready for a charity craft day next Sunday.

31809
31810
31805

Made about 20 glasses cases - just got to finish off the fastenings/embellishments
25 pillow cases to be trimmed - 1st one pinned in place and the strips of fabric cut
packaged 100 hand-made cards which were in my craft cupboard (which I brought here with me from the UK)
31802

We've also had a week of temperatures above 30 degrees (high 70s) so had a few days at the beach - summer is nearly here and it will soon be too hot to spend hours in the sewing room.

I still have to try that glasses case pattern, because it's too adorable to pass up! It's so funny to hear about you guys getting ready for summer when we're putting winter tires on and bracing for snow lol Good luck with turning all of those UFOs into FOs. You can do it! :D

Hi Jane.......you have been busy! Everything looks great........I think the dog print is my favorite! Seems strange that it's summertime there and cold here! Good luck at the craft fair!

Good to hear from you Jane! I have not seen a whole lot from our Aussie sisters and thought to myself - they must all be outside enjoying their mild weather!
Love all your projects - especially that little cheery cherry mouse!

Mild ?????? ....... its 80 degrees and still only Spring.

Think we're in for a very hot Summer after a much wetter winter (thanks to La Nina and El Nino)
