OPAM for April

A busy month so I'm pleased to link up with the lovely KRIS who's keeping us on track with OPAM each month and post my finishes.....

I attended a two day workshop this month to make a cute  6"  Bear ..... I was surprised that on the first day we only got his head made.













 Homework Sat night was to stitch the arms , legs , body and ears together sew on Sunday we worked on finishing our bear...
















I nicknamed him  " Scruffy " but after spending time making him a waistcoat and bandana I've called him


 "  Edmund "


My finish for " Sunday Stitchers" Challenge No 3   " Flying Colours "  designed by Sue Belleli.



I picked up my quilt  " Simplify " from the longarm quilters this week and I'm happy with the little Elephants and Flowers quilted all over...




 





found a great backing ...............









and as usual I've been busy sewing Sheilds  for " Days for Girls "













 and you can see my " Bunny Garden " Hanging
HERE...



Thank you KRIS for keeping me focused to get all these projects finished this month........





Must away and put on the kettle for a cuppa....

Happy Stitching.

Parents hid plastic eggs  ( sew Lacy wouldn't find chocolate ones and eat them.)  over the 5 acre block...







the kids had so much fun finding them






















Abbi had her hands full ....  !!!







This morning the campers packed up and were off home to Perth ,

Happy Easter

Wishing everyone  Happy and Safe Easter ....    Today I enjoyed an early start with Wendy for FNSI and put together a new Easter Mini to pop in my frame


after finishing the stitchery  " Bunny Garden "  designed by Lynette Anderson.....

This evening I hope to sew  a few  BlooMs for the BlooMerS PaRtY  before our visitors arrive tomorrow..... Thanks Wendy for a relaxing day/evening of sewing.

We'll have 8 more folk and with just one bathroom in our home we've hired an extra loo......



This one's a little flasher than the ones you see at building sites..

Well must away and organise dinner before getting back in the Cave....

Happy Stitching
