PRETTY STUFF and more

I have called this post Pretty stuff, which relates to the first picture and a possible few later on, although there is an ugly there too, you will spot it when you come to it....
The pretty is for this picture of Rebecca, she looks so grown up in that hat, her mum had the day off the other Saturday and they had fun trying some hats on in the shops before going to the cinema. I think the hat really suits her, but why do I keep wanting to say.... 'The rain in Spain' and stuff like that????

My beautiful 13 year old GD.....
Bookmark and ATC from Fay in Israel,
the painted card was done by disabled children, many thanks Fay they are great...
 Cathy in New Zealand sent me this postcard of a sewing machine,
plus the cheeky chicken card which makes me laugh, thanks Cathy...
the little piece of white is peltex, she uses for making the postcards...
 'AUSTRALIA' Postcard from Tessa,
a Canadian living here in Penrith - confused??
hahaha, thanks Tessa it is fabulous of course...
 Bookmark and ATC sent to Sandy in Australia, from me,
it was Free choice theme...
 I did Pictionary type for the Bookmark, can you work it out???
I have entered yet another 'Strip swap' on the PP Forum,
we had to send Katy 14 strips of red fabric, she mixed them all up
and here are mine, I received them Saturday, thanks Katy...
WOO HOO I have done my Hexagons for the Quilt Set swap Pat -
my hand is now swollen like a balloon but I got them done...
Just thought this was pretty, in the garden above the water butt -
which is constantly overflowing due to the weather...
The President clematis has done really well this year
 masses of flowers on it, but I only wanted one...
 We planted, well hubby planted loads of Lilys this year for a change,
I love Lilys but....
 so does this horrible bug - it is eating them, we go out at regular intervals
and find these little monsters and kill them DEAD, apparently this year
they are rife throughout the country, maybe cos of the rain????
FMQ CHALLENGE with SEWCALGAL -
The tutor for July is
Angela Walters -TILES is the challenge...
you may remember I had done this as the challenge, then I was reminded by one
of the ladies on the Facebook page for this  - Cathy - that I was going to do my samples for this challenge each month of trees....
...so here is my tree for the July Challenge
I have actually cheated cos the tree is not 'tiled' the background is...
I chose NOT to quilt this one for some reason -
this is the back..
Following is a review of the trees done so far...
January with Frances Moore...
February with Diane Gaudynski...
March with Ann Fahl...
April with Don Linn...
May with Leah Day...
June with Cindy Needham...
Hmm looking at some of these I think I may do some over again...

Thanks for looking....

I was looking at the photo I have of Rebecca in front of the lion and realised just how much she has grown up - lovely young lady. Good to see all your FMQ together.
