~OPAM...One Project A Month



OPAM here once again
This time I have a little Pin Cushion
Stitchery designed by Bonnie Sullivan for Girls Day In The Country 
We were each given a pattern and could make anything we like out of it for a Swap and this was my contribution



My poor old Heat Bag had developed a hole so a new Parisian inspired cover was made for it



3 little handy bags


One of which came in handy for the Pin Cushion


And finally a little Needlebook which was part of a Kit for GDITC


I decided to put a cross on the thread part of the bobbin


page in 'Needlebook'


and a little signature and date on the back of the Needlebook

Thank to Sweet Peg and Kris for hosting OPAM again this month!!!

It's great the OPAM encourages you to finish and share your work. You've made lots of lovely things last month. I love the little needle book. and so perfect that you covered your wheat bag with parisian fabric.
