It's that time

of the month we need to post our finishes for OPAM with the fabulous Kris and wonderful Peg ...It's thanks to these ladies I make sure to have at least one finish each month... Big thank you to both...XX

When I went outside to hang my finished "Super Hero" quilt to photograph I was surprised to find this.....

Sew I took the photo on the verandah 


while the workers fixed the rotary.                                               

Managed to make my youngest GGC s "Santa Sack "

and two baskets and a pencil case out of scraps as well this month.

Of course I have other secret sewing I have completed but you don't see them till the end of next month.....

I can show you what was in a lovely parcel wrapped in gorgeous BIG DOTTY FQs+ 2  that I received this week from my Dear friend Sunny...

Just love this Table Center and beautiful handmade card ,


my birthday gift.. Sweet hexies and lovely stitched vine with cute wee buttons for flowers.

The bigger gift is for Christmas and even though Sunny said to open early I want to wait for awhile before I do. Would like to pop it under the tree when I put it up......Thank you heaps my friend...XX

Now I must go and finish my 6 blocks for the FQ SAL..
