I'm all caught up ...

with the Civil War Quilt  blocks.  I finished one last night and the other one late this afternoon.  I'm really enjoying making these blocks, once the fabrics are selected they don't take too long to put together.

 I also found some time (while staying up very late watching the Tour de France) to make a few more owls for Lucky's Huggles for Ethiopia Appeal, these are on their way to Amanda, they have a target of 100 Huggles by September so there is still time to make one or two if you want to contribute, see here for more details.
