The priority for June is to get the secret quilt finished (I started quilting today, and it's going reasonably well considering the size) before the July deadline. Oh and to get a start on another secret project due in August. I'm not a fan of panic sewing ;o)
My parcel for the second month of Bring Me Flowers (the 2013 Amitie BOM) arrived today - it's spurred me on to actually cut and start hand piecing my May blocks tonight :o) I'm also a wee bit excited - we are going to Melbourne for a week over the next school holidays (in July) and I've forewarned the family that I will be spending at least a morning at Amitie. I have a grumbling consent, so I'm saving my pennies :o) Do my Melbourne peeps have any other patchwork shops you think I should visit?
A couple of weeks ago, I bought a pattern in the Sew Mama Sew pattern sale - Figgy's Nituna Jacket pattern. My little girl has grown out of her jacket from last winter, so I'd love to make her this one for this year.

Lastly, I've finally pulled my finger out and started making a couple of baby quilts to list in my Madeit shop - I love that this design effectively makes two quilts at once! They'll finish up at around 40" square. Hoping to get these done in the next week or so.
So do you have any grand sewing plans for winter (or summer for you northerners)? Please tell me I'm not the only one who makes ridiculously big lists...
