OPAM for March 2022.and sign up for FnwFs

While my hand is still healing from surgery I only managed to make two small "Quilts of Love" for  OPAM this month......Thank you KRIS for keeping us on our toes each month.

My DD1 gifted me some FQs of Pooh Bear fabrics that I didn't cut up to small pieces so I'm pleased with these two simple quilts made from big blocks.
Tomorrow I'll be having my stitches removed and I can't wait to be able to have a shower without wearing a rubber glove taped around my waist.....
As it will be the first Friday of the month this week it's time to pop over to Cheryll's blog to sign up for FnwFs. 

Must away and organise my projects for FnwFs and the "Stay at Home" retreat with ladies from Patch too.

Stay safe and well.

Hugs  Maria ❤

FNSI for March

Before we can blink it's the third Friday of the month and time to join Wendy and friends for FNSI.  Even though I under went carpal tunnel surgery on Tuesday I wanted to join in as I've not missed a Friday night since I joined in November 2009.  

 I have had a "Scrap Bag" with a bit of a hotch pot Jelly Roll in that I decided I could sew three strips together and later when I can use the rotary cutter cut into 6" blocks.

They will make a great fence and rail  community quilt.

and I found a bag of  "I Spy" blocks 


which were easy to sew together as well...

ironing I did find challenging left handed so will also leave that for later 

I enjoyed sewing along with my virtual friends and Wendy and look forward to seeing what others worked on over the weekend..

Must away and rest..

Stay safe and well.

Hugs  Maria ❤

March RSC and Aussie Hero Blocks...

It's been a terrible week so I don't listen to the news as it just makes me sad instead I hide away in the Cave and sew.....

First I went through my scrap box to find some yellows/golds which is the colour for this months RSC with Angela....

I'm doing "Delectable Mountain"and"Half Log Cabin" for my blocks this year....
The Mystery Block for this month is called " Autumn Star" for "Aussie Hero's"

It has Navy Blue ,Orange, light Grey and  White ... I like this block and look forward to it being made into a quilt.

I have a question for you ????
When does a WIP ( work in progress) become a UFO ???????

Thinking of all who are doing it stuff,
keep safe and well
