30 June check in

Greetings from Christchurch.  Yes, I'm away again.  No wonder I feel like I'm not getting anything finished this year.  I keep going away for long weekends!

But we did pass the half way mark of 2022 last week, and I usually check in against my priority list when we reach 30 June. So here goes: 

1.  Licorice Allsorts Block of the Month from Wendy Williams

I've started doing the embroidery blocks and I'm really enjoying that.  I haven't started machine piecing any of the blocks yet.  

2.  Ruby Star

The piecing is finished and it's currently at my long arm quilter - Rayna Clinton.

3. Starry Night

It's finished and gifted to my mother in law. You can read more here. 

4.  Tea Party BOM by Wendy Williams

No progress on this one in 2022 - yet. 

5. Neptune and the Mermaid

It's finished!! And I've entered it in to Symposium so I don't want to show a full photo until I find out if it's been accepted or not.  

So that's the five things that I had on my list.  But I've also worked on a lot of other things:

6. Bordered Diamonds

This was a fun quilt to make. You can read more here

7. Quilts for Ukraine

I dedicated April and May to making blocks and 11 quilt tops for Ukrainian refugee children.  You can read more here. 

Plus of course there's lot of other things I've done this year, including trips to Dunedin and Taupo for quilting.  Overall I'm happy with my progress and what I've been able to achieve in 2022 so far.  If I stay at home a bit more in the second half of the year I might get even more done.  

Now it's time for the Peacock Party.  Have you written a list for 2022? How are you tracking against it?  Feel free to link up a recent blog post below.

Wendy, each of your projects is more spectacular than the last. The hand embroidery, the Ruby Stars, the appliqué -- so much inspiration today!
