~OPAM 2014~


And woo-hoo I've joined OPAM again this year
Thank you Sweet Peg and Kris for hosting this as I find that I am having a lot more finishes!!!


Just a little one this month
A small kit I bought at the Sydney Show 
Kit is by Studio Mio and is called a G & S Case.......for  Glasses & Sunglasses


and here it is all finished complete with buttons from the kit


and I added the little I made it tag!!!

I thought I would throw this little pic in
Whenever I go up to Canberra for a shopping day with JoJo we always call in to Lincraft and get some threads.  While I look for specific threads I would say to her pick some colours.
This pic is from 2 shopping trips......always nice and colourful from My Girl!!!

I have a nice little collection of embroidery threads that are in the faded colors of the sea. I have been stitching hearts this week...white with organic cotton ball filling. It feels so rewarding to stitch again, it has been years and I have missed it. JoJo's colors are like a beautiful rainbow! So cheerful.

Terry said...

Finishing is always a bit of a delima here as well.
The OPM works well for you and it's nice to see what your up to.
Glad you and Jojo share a love of color.
