Some Finishes for OPAM....

I'm really happy to be part of Peg and Kris's OPAM . I  know that I must have at least one finish each month..
This month I worked on Toni's    " Elephants"


I took sew many photos and just can't seam to get the true bright colours...  but when I took the photo of the backing and my strippy binding the colour looked better ?????


Earlier this month we had the Cancer Councils  "Biggest Morning Tea"  The ladies make up beautiful baskets for raffle prizes and I made 4 Place mats to pop into one of them...


I wasn't one of the winners but our committee was delighted to have raised over $8000  on the morning.. Such generous folk live in our small town.


Another finish this month is the second "Scissor's Keep " designed by Lynette Anderson ..


This one is a gift for ???????? someone..

Hope you all had a happy month stitching and managing some finishes too..

Hugz  Maria :)
