October OPAM

Where did October go ???
It was such a busy month for me with our Triennial Hanging ( you can read about it HERE and HERE ) and then off to the big smoke to supervise my teenage GC for two weeks the month just disappeared.

It was lovely to settle back into going for my Sunday morning walk along the beach

and having coffee with the ladies at the Seaside cafe today...

I did manage a few small finishes for this month..

When my Vintage Laundry Trolley blow a tyre and Hubby make a temporary replacement, I also thought it was time for a new Peg Bag..

and the ironing board cover desperately needed replacing...

as I have plenty of fabric decided to make the cover and with the left over piece made a small ironing mat..

Earlier this month I enjoyed making this cute little "Quilt of Love" for our Community display..

Now it's time to work on some more secret sewing.

Hope you are all having a lovely Sunday...

Happy Stitching

Hugz Maria :)
