OPAM for July

It hasn't been a very busy month on the sewing front but thanks to the lovely KRIS I can post a few small finishes and completed a community quilt for Patch... 

I decided it was time to go through my pile of quilting books and part with loads. While flicking through one book I found this inside , 

 not all the pieces where there and also the pattern was missing but I made a new thread basket.......

 For Patch I quilted and did the binding on quilt below so I'm calling that a finish.....

and of course I made a new ironing mat that you can see HERE .

Must away , get dressed to meet my dear friend Jeanie for our Saturday coffee...

To those in lock down please stay  safe and well,

Hugs Maria ❤

to the bigger ones for the piggies.....

after completing them I made the blocks for this months Aussie Hero mystery blocks......

It was a busy day today with doing some washing first before going into town for my Saturday morning coffee with my friend Jean. 
Then when I got home it was lovely to join Chooky for her Zoom meeting..

I enjoyed chatting with the ladies and also got some Hexies flowers sewn into sets of four

Must away to make my Milo before going to bed,

Stay safe and Happy Stitching..
