This blog is all about me......I come here for respite in between caring for JoJo (our Daughter who has Special Needs)......I am addicted to starting new projects......I am becoming a fabric-a-holic... I love to try out recipes... take a beach walk and breathe in that salty blue air......love to have coffee...sip a glass of champagne......read a book......I am Queen of the Armchair and am inspired by all the wonderful blogs out there!!!

OPAM (One Project a Month) December...

Here is the last for OPAM for 2011...
2 items this time...


A Volkswagen Combi Cushion especially for JoJo...
Pattern is 'big camper' by Hot Possum and fabric is 'Now We're Goin' Places' by Monica Lee 
for Timeless Treasures...
I even did the applique with my machine...and this was a first for me...


Back of the cushion...this is the first time I have attempted buttonholes with my machine...
so easy!!!  I'm ready for more ha ha...


Even had some VW buttons by Nikki Tervo waiting for something special like this...


Front of cushion...


and back...


and a little cross stitch for JoJo...
she just loves Santa so this was quite apt for the occasion...
only thing is...I have had it for 2 years...

Thank you so much to Peg and Kris for hosting OPAM for another month...
I know that I wouldn't have finished a lot of what I have!!!

That cushion is so cute! Love the buttons, brave you, I hate doing buttonholes. The Santa is cute, I imagine that Jojo must have really liked it.
