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)...Mary Agnes Sewing Set

OPAM for February now finished...PHEW!!!
This project I first mentioned back in December 2008...
I finally started it last year...


Scissor holder sitting on top of fabric which is to hold a pincushion...


From Country Threads magazine Volume 9 No 3...Mary Agnes Sewing Set by Kate Hampson at That Raggedy One...




Kates's version from the magazine...


My pincushion and scissor holder...



The pin cushions sits on a fabric covered board with felt underneath...
And I love this set!!!

Thanks so much Peg and Kris for hosting OPAM...
I don't think know I wouldn't be completing an item a month if it wasn't for this!!!

Forecast for this weekend is rain...rain...and more rain...
75% of New South Wales is predicting floods...
Warragamba Dam in Sydney is about to spill over

We are safe here at the moment this coming weekend so thinking perhaps a Cook Up and a bit of sewing will happen...

Happy Weekend and stay safe...Dzintra

Oh how lovely! You've done a great job! We are getting much needed rain these days too, but not enough to fill up the reservoirs. Stay safe! Hope it won't be too bad your side!
Wonderful weekend to you and yours!

Cute finishes!

Oh my dear one! You are having a lot of rain? We are having the worse weather in the lower half of the country; there have been strange tornadoes that have destroyed many towns in places where tornadoes are not usual, and so early in the year. BE WELL MY DEAR and enjoy that darling little sewing kit!!! Anita

Hello Dzintra,
I do so love what you are quilting! The scissor holder and pin cushion are so sweet! Oooo! Hope you don't float away with the rain you are having. There are tornadoes in the mid-west as this is the time of year for them. We don't have tornadoes, except tiny funnel clouds that do touch down maybe ten times in a year, but they down rip apart houses and normally don't kill people, which is what is happening 2,000 miles away east from us.
I love your banner! JoJo looks so happy and you are so charming my dear!
Someday, when I finally put a digital 'bit' in my camera I'll take some photos to post on my blog of Ty and myself!
You are an inspiration!
