OPAM for July.....

I've been kept busy this month working on two projects I was determined to finish for this month's OPAM..       Thanks Peg and Kris , you keep me on track each month...

First was a Wall Hanging " Fernhill "  designed by Lynette Anderson and you can see it HERE...

and the BIG finish was my " MONSTERS" designed by Toni from Red Boot Company....


I had sew much fun going through my fabrics to create each of these guys...


I quilted around each Monster , his teeth and then stippled each block.. Cross hatched the border blocks and did my favorite Strippy fabric for the binding....

After working on the two big projects I decided to make something quick  ... I needed some new hand towels to hang in the kitchen. The lovely Shez always makes fabulous Hand Towels and she did a tutorial that you can follow HERE.....

Nice and easy and I made two.....
Thanks Shez....

Happy Stitching...

FNSI for July

Earlier in the week I went down to Patch and pinned the "Monsters" ready to start quilting for FNSI with the lovely Wendy and all our online friends.....


BUT I got side tracked and joined some wadding together












and started quilting "Fernhill" by Lynette Anderson.



and I kept going till it was completely finished at 1.30 am....



Grrr! I have taken so many photos of this and just can't get a nice shot with it's true colours but you get the idea.....














 Love the border fabric. I bought it some time ago for a swap project for my friend Christine and then saved the remainder for this wall hang.
Just perfect don't you think ?







Yesterday afternoon I called into Patch and the ladies where cutting up some donated fabrics for community quilts sew I took a pile home and cut one out.....


Now I am ready for our big sewing day planned for August...

Hope you all had a great evening of stitching with Wendy and 20 other lovely ladies...
I'll enjoy visiting them HERE to see what you've all been doing...

Happy Stitching

Busy Friday then FnwFs....

I got up early and drove into Geraldton to visit DD, GD, GDIL and the four GGC....


then in the afternoon it was off to the dentist for my annual check up and before driving home I did some grocery shopping...

After dinner I decided I needed to iron the pile of placemats and rug mugs  before sitting down in the Cave to join  Cheryll and friends for FnwFs




















I only managed to get the borders onto " Fernhill " by Lynette Anderson


and two onto my "Monsters" by Toni form Red Boot Company
















Hope to join in again later this evening and sew along with my Northern Hemisphere friends...

Happy Stitching ,

Hugz Maria :)
