~OPAM (One Project A Month) August 2017...'Whanau'


My blog posts have been few and far between this year for various reasons
but I did manage an OPAM for August YAY


A little Farewell Mini Quilt for a Friend going back to New Zealand whilst her Father is not very well
My Friend is a Florist so I thought it apt to take some photos of the Quilt in the Camelia Bush


Little Quilt amongst a Camelia and some Sea Shells



Even though the back doesn't exactly match the front I thought it depicted our coastal area very well


'Whanau' is a Maori word for Family which is what this is all about


I even attached the Camelia to the gift and she just loved this

Many thanks to Sweet Peg and her Partner in Crime Kris for hosting OPAM again this year!!!

Welcome to my world ... a journal of our Sea Change ... Mum to three wonderful children ... bringing up a daughter with a disability and seeing life through her eyes ... being a new Nanna ... photos ... inspiring quotes ... taking on a cookery course ... the odd recipe ... and trying to get some stitching done amongst all this ...
