Look what arrived today. I've been patiently waiting for these 2 patterns to arrive before i go on a fabric shopping spree. I was also fortunate that the shop i bought them from also had 2 honeybuns i was seeking. Now i can start "Tail Feathers". Aren't the fabrics so pretty. Seems a shame to cut them up.

These a my 3 finishes so far for August. Unfortunately in the recent Christmas in July swap for reasons unknown a swapper missed out on receiving any gifts. So i said to the host i'd be glad to send something to her. This is what i made & sent. Also shown is the hand made Christmas card. I've not done embroidered cards before. The little needle case is a Rosalie Quinlan pattern which i bought a while back & have been eager to make. The little bag is a Bareroots design. I've had this pattern a while so was glad of an excuse to make one up. So quick & easy.

Look what arrived in the mail today. My 3 Bronwyn Hayes patterns. All wrapped up nicely in pink tissue paper. I bought them from The Quilters Angel. 2 are Christmas patterns & the other is hot pads with Gingham Girls appliqued on them. How could i resist. So yes a shopping excursion to buy fabrics is definately in order. I really should use my new camera for photo's but for some reason my new computer doesn't like it. Doesn't like anything really. Have to seek & find things.

I've been a bit slack lately. To many personal dramas happening last month. Just realised i'd only posted on my blog once last month. I have been sewing though just not as much as i should have been. So no finishes for the OPAM. :(. Hopefully this month i will. Sorry about the small picture. I decided to buy Natalies wonderful new patterns "Tail Feathers". Been buying a few patterns actually. Bronwyn Hayes has 3 new ones out & of course i had to have them. Natalie Ross has released her new "a Ladybirds Seranade" so i addded that to my collection. Now to find time to sew them because i've also joined in many swaps in the coming months.
Well another month is nearly gone by. Just 100 days until Christmas & then 2024 will be here. Next year is a big "0" year for...
A wee bit excited. A while back i noticed that the 2 olives trees had tiny flowers on them so i crossed fingers that this year we'd get...
