Finally finished

I have been working on this quilt for a while and all that was left to do on it was to put the binding on. I spent most of the day stitching it on, but at last it is finished. Tomorrow I will be able to get a hanger for it and drop it off to it's new owner. I hope they love it as much as I do.

It was a pattern by Nancy Halvorson from her Curiosities & Mischief book which I adjusted a little to suit the purpose of hanging in a preschool classroom.

Now I am off to sew on some duck wings, beaks and eyes to finish off some more little ducks.

September OPAM

I'm a bit late posting this (but not as late as last month!!! LOL) 

Here is what I finished in September,

The "Sewing Makes Me Happy Thread Keeper" by Gail Pan

It is on display at the shop now!

Mother Duck from Melly and Me's "Five Little Ducks" Pattern

I still have five little ducks to make, They are also going on display at the shop for a while!

Then I finally finished the Unicorn a friend asked me to make from a "Funky Friends Factory" Pattern

And last but not least I finished the "Barn Owl Doll" by Paloma Rocha  which was also for my friend. They wanted it in pink and purple so I had fun trying out colour combinations with this one!

Then I had fun taking photos of the doll and the Unicorn together

I have been working on other stuff as well but none of them have reached the finished stage.

August OPAM

Oops just realised I hadn't done a post for August.

I finished the Croc which I posted about in my last entry

I also finished this quilt by finally putting the binding on it!

My sewing friends encouraged me to do some hexagons (Even though I despise them!!!) so I also finished this little project
I am leaving my mug rug at my favourite craft shop in the classroom for when we are sewing. I might finish the other one one day....

I also finished the Summer Fun BOM finally (But I forgot to take a photo before it went on display at the shop so I will have to post it later)

A little gift

I made this little fellow to help out at school. I hope the kids like him!

It was another of the wonderful Funky Friends Factory Patterns  I love being able to brighten someone else's day by making them something!

Slow Stitching Sunday, 27 July 2014

I spent my stitching time today finishing off this little set.

It is a Gail Pan design. It was so much fun to make. I have a few more of her patterns to add to this set. I can't wait to get them stitched up to add to this collection.

BOM's Away and Tuesday Stitching

I haven't worked on my Apples of Gold BOM in ages so I decided to get it out and do a little last night. I made a little progress on it.

Maybe if I continue to work on it a little each week it will get finished soon.

Today I had a lovely day stitching with a wonderful friend. I always feel refreshed and uplifted after a day stitching with her I think it's because we have such a wonderful time and lots of laughs!
This is what I worked on today.

Some Slow Stitching Progress

I finally sat down and worked on my cross stitch for a while last night. It wasn't a great deal of progress but every little bit helps get it closer to finished!

Now I'm off to work on a BOM that hasn't been touched for quite a while!
