OPAM...(One Project a Month) and SSCS (Secret Santa Christmas Swap)

OPAM has come around quickly and I haven't done much stitching at all recently...
I've been involved with the Bay Theatre Players in their Victorian Music Hall...
and what fun it all is!!!
Have taken some pics and will post soon...



Meanwhile, I have managed to finish 1 item for this month...
this was part of Chookyblue's SSCS...
the gift to be made for the swap had to include a Christmas decoration with the rest of the handmade gift to be tucked away under the Christmas tree to be opened at Christmas...
The decoration is in the green bag...this is one of the items for OPAM October but I couldn't show it at that time due to all the secrecy!!!


I wrapped the 'main' gift in a Debbie Mumm Fat 1/4 and to it I attached a stitched tag by Hugs'nKisses



front of the gift tag for my partner Anne Marie...
this is my OPAM for November...


back...


Thank you to Peg and Kris for hosting OPAM...
I KNOW I wouldn't get as much finished if I didn't do this!!!

And a big thank you to Chooky for hosting SSCS...
I'm so looking foward to my parcel...it should be here any day now!!!
