Finishes for OPAM....

Remember I mentioned in my last post that I found all these stitchery and applique blocks.Well here they are all made up and finished.The three applique blocks I cut to the same size and used up some left over prairie points to make a small table runner.

The largest of all the stitcheries I again used some left over prairie points and turned it into a wall hanger.

The gingerbread kisses cushion just needed a back put on it and it was finished.Something that simple but it took me till now to actually get around to it.I've had a very busy weekend this week on the craft onto some uni homework :)

Stay tuned over the next couple of days as I'm also working on a few other projects which I hope to have finished before March ends......

Look what I found!

While searching through my scraps of Christmas fabrics I found all these stitcheries.I think they've been sitting in there for quite a few years ......ooops more things to try and finish of.

Stay tuned and see what they turn into.I also found a larger santa stitchery and three christmas applique blocks which I've just started working on today.Will post a photo when I get them done...hopefully in time for March's OPAM list :)

I've also been working on a crocheted project in-between all the others things I've been working on.I really need more hours in the day if I keep finding more UFO"S!!

OPAM Finishes for March and more....Photo heavy post!

I've been busy over the last couple of weeks...went to Tassie for a week to celebrate our wedding anniversary came back home and worked on a Uni assignment and inbetween all the piles of washing,assignments and being sick I've been working on finishing a few things and thought I'd show you what I've accomplished....
The pot holders I've made up using the hearts blocks (which were not needed anymore) so I decided to use them as pot holders and I think they turned out great.More pressies for my gift basket!

The pile of lovely background fabrics I bought while in Tassie and they feel as good as they look yummo!

The next lot are the three blocks I've been working on for the "Tis the Season" stitch-a-long I've joined.I've used scraps from the "Love is" BOM I just finished putting the final borders on (photo included) just needs quilting now.I'm quite pleased that I haven't bought anything for this BOM except for the embroidery threads.
Another couple of things I've been working on is putting these two quilt tops together ready to blanket stitch them by hand at night while zoning out in front of the tv at night.One of these quilt tops has been waiting for over five years to be put together but now it's ready to applique and off to the quilters it will go.The Bliss quilt is a more recent one I spotted on the moda bake shop site and just couldn't resist puttung it together,just needs the applique done as well.

I have a few more things I've been working on but I'll save them for another day LOL I think I've overloaded you enough for this post :)

Sorry for taking so long in posting off your giveaway's girls.They are now officially on there way to you,Uni assignments,sickness and loads of washing after my weeks holiday in Tassie meant I've been behind the eight ball all week.
