OPAM (One Project A Month)...April

And here is my OPAM for April!!!
Thanks to Peg and Kris for organizing this...I KNOW I do get more done than I normally would!!!
So happy with this one too...
I saw this little label amongst others and bought it not knowing what I would use it for...



I've made this bag before and I just love it...


Fabrics purchased from My Patch at Milton...


And ta da here is this cute little bag...front


and back...


and hanging...


I also finished this block for our Needlework Group...
this was homework at Christmas...
Fiona organizes blocks for everyone and during the year they are put together into a quilt and raffled off...pretty good I think!!!

Happy Stitching...Dzintra

THAT BAG that is in the form of a storefront is SO DARLING!!! Oh how perfect this is for someone I know. I just finished drawing a blog header for Marcia at THE SHOP AROUND THE CORNER and this bag would be perfect for her done up in the same colors as my drawing! I MUST TRY TO MAKE ONE FOR HER!

Lovely work my sweet friend! Anita
