It's That Time Again

to post our finishes for OPAM with the wonderful KRIS who keeps us on track each month....Thanks heaps as I know you're a very busy lady...

Some time ago I bought a Panel of four   "Bear Families"  which I have made into four Quilts Of Love.....

also made four Chalk Fabric Rolls

and  I completed my No 5 UFO challenge with the Sunday Stitchers ,

An armchair caddy designed by Helen Stubbings from Hugs n Kisses....

which I gifted to my DD who had a surprise gift for me too!

It's a lovely bright rope basket which she made from bits of scrap of binding she'd saved.... DD had bought the rope when we visited the Craft Fair many years ago to make me a basket.
                                   " They say all good things come to those that wait" LOL.
Thank You Sandra I love it......😘..

This weekend I am going to Party with my blogging buddy and virtual friends sew

I must away to organise " The Cave" ready to just sew........

Happy Stitching

Hugs  Maria   😊
