More OPAM finishes for February.....

I've been working on more dishcloths for my kitchen trying to use up all my bits of cotton I made some multi-coloured oned with the leftovers and these will be designated as bathroom cleaners,I also finished off the 2nd candle mat I started in December last year.
The cupcake pot holder I couldn't show till now as I made it for a special friend in my fat 1/4 birthday swap list and had to wait till she told me she'd received it before I could post any pictures of it.So that's a total of 5 more finished for OPAM for this month......I wonder if I have enough time to finish of a couple of more things before February ends???
Now don't forget about our Craft Forum Blog Hop happening next starts at Midday Aussie time and finishes Midnight've got to be in it to win it right?

More Finishes....

While sorting through all my UFO's I discovered all these tuffet tops in a bag and decided that they would be one of the many projects I would finish this year.Now they are sitting in my gift giving basket ready to be used at a moments notice for family and friends this year for birthdays or Christmas gifts.
It feels so good to get things finished!!

More finishes for OPAM

I started these three cushions out as bags last year but kept mucking up puting them together due to tiredness and sooooo they turned into three cushions instead,I got fustrated seeing them sitting in my UFO pile but no more :) So three more for my February OPAM list.

I also finished stitching my second block of the birdie cute!

Febuary Finish for OPAM....

I've had the top of this runner together and sitting in my UFO pile for (I'm too embarressed to admit) how many years but now it's finished and of my UFO pile and into my OPAM finish pile.

Boy does it feel good to get things done and be able to use them :)
