The ramblings from a small quilt shop on the South Islands West Coast of New Zealand

And I was doing so well

I really was, last month I got my OPAM totals loaded well ahead of time, then Miss Pfaff needed repairing – well… since she has been home I have been completing stuff flat out and before I knew it the date on the bottom of the screen said 2/10/2012!!!  What the… not only had ‘daylight saving’ arrived here but someone has walked off with at least a couple of weeks of mine as the time has just flown by.

So without further waffling around I will share some of the OPAM finishes I have done for September:

Candlewicking is still something I’m playing around with not just cushions – or the large ones anyway, but a little pin cushion too.013

Then just because I could, I came up with a little table mat pattern that I’ll use for my beginners class.


Then I got to complete a couple of stitchery thingies – the first is gorgeous and is not my design, but that hasn’t stopped me stitching it.


“Love you this much” is a saying that Miss Faith and I have, isn’t the design just so cute?

The next stitchery was a freebie on-line that I quite liked a while back, so when there was no machine to stitch with I turned to this and turned it into a little wall hanging.


Then finally I got to finish my latest ‘Strippers Club’ Quilt sample.  This one is a large quilt and although the background fabric looks like a goldy tan it is actually a taupe!


So there you have it, 5 finishes for OPAM for September – I’m so sorry to our dear ladies who keep our tally, I just got too busy to load my totals on.

happy days,   hugs
