This year I have joined Jan-Maree to make Aussie Hero Quilts. Do pop over and read about how it started and all the wonderful ladies who stitched up a storm.
This is the label the they put on the quilts and here is my first top.
Waiting for blocky fabrics to arrive to stitch up more.
Will be stitching my flowers with Karen and the other ladies on One Flower Wednesday.
These are my first three for 2012
Hope to complete some of my projects each month by participating in
OPAM with Kris and Peg. This will be the third year I have joined these great ladies. Thanks for organising OPAM each year.
Look at the No of finishes everyone completed last year…………
Last year I joined "Sew It's Finished" run by lovely Dawn and Wendy. Thank you ladies.
Even though I did not get as many finishes as I should have it was fun seeing what all the others finished.
By joining again this year I may finish ALL my UFO’s. LOL….
Maybe you would like to participate this year, go check it out.
and then there are the monthly swaps
"Aussie Block Swap" Thanks heaps Sue.
"Christmas Swap Blocks" Many thanks to Crafty.
Plus the BOM.
Each month a different designer gives us a 8” block to make.
Ah….. and then there is also
the "Stay at Home Round Robin" run by my good bloggy friend Sunny. Thank goodness she does not put any pressure on us to finish in a hurry. Will be working on my again soon Sunny !!!!
AND "Going Dotty" the Friendship Medallion. I can work on it at my own pace. I only get a new row when I send a photo of the previous one finished. PHEW………….
Oh No !! Nearly forgot this one.
Jeanneke has extended the sign up date to Jan 16th so you can still join up. The challenge is to make 365 X 3 " houses out of scraps. My are 6'” so I only need to make 183 .
Sew you can see why I have to be strong and not sign up for more swaps for awhile.
As I was typing my post DH came in with these
