OPAM (One Project A Month).....March 2015


One small item for OPAM this month for the Girls Day in the Country (GDIC) Swap
A little stitchery was provided for us, by Lynette Anderson,  to stitch up and turn into something 




I used a tea towel......added a piece of linen and put the stitchery on to it and added some ric rac.

Tutorial for the towel can be found
at Jenni at Elefantz

Thank you Jenni!!!









Only thing is I called it a Stitching Towel.......
a towel one can take with them to lay on the table to protect their work from any sticky marks etc that may be on the table
The back


Kate was the one who received this Swap gift........so pleased it went to a fellow Blogger!!!

Thank you so much Peg and Kris for hosting OPAM!!!

What a beautiful gift and a great way to use the stitchery. It's always good to see something you make go to someone who appreciates it.
