challenge progress

It's been a slow couple of months on the finishing side of the crafts around here..... but there has been much activity all the same!

It's that time of year again - Little Possum's birthday! Last year we did the Fairy party and this year's theme is "Fancy Nancy". We made handbag shaped invitations embellished with rhinestones and glitterglue. All of my finishes this month are bound to be party related:

felt flowers glued on to elastic hairbands and felt party bags decorated with ribbon and individualised with fabric paint (fantastic stuff!!)

On the quilting front there has been activity as well. I have been working on my Butterfly Garden blocks - here are block 1 and 2 in progress:

Tonight Turtle and Doodlebug were invested as cubscouts..... it was a great occasion and they were very excited. Almost as excited as MOTH who went to the same pack as a cub, scout, venturer, rover and, now, cub leader. I think that my new role will be to sew on all the badges.... :)
