It’s that time Again…

to post my finishes for OPAM and "Sew it's Finished" .

Karen's postcard. 2013

I am pleased to be able to show you my very first Post Card. A “Pincushion Hakea” an Australian native which grows on The Block. It was sent Karen in Canada… It took sew long to arrive I was worried it had got lost…..

Postcard from Karen July 2013

and this is the lovely one I received from Karen. Love it….

These are two cushion covers I made for  my partner Clare in the "Lets Celebrate  Swap" for Spring.

Spring Swap for Let's Celebrate Aug 2013 (2)

the cushions are also my UFO finish for this month’s  “Sew it’s Finished”

This cute little Sewing Case was our SAL project for August.

Thank you to ALL the ladies who helped me get these finishes this month…
Only 6 weeks to our Hanging…. I better get into the cave and do some quilting……….

  12. Great finishes this month Maria. If it's only 6 weeks until your Quilt Hanging, that means it's only 5 to NOTYQ's! I'd better start cracking on labels and rod pockets! LOL! Pity we're so far away from each other that we can't go to both shows.
