OPAM Finish for July

'Cause I didn't make it for June. Oh well. These were such a lot of fun to make! I'm sure I'll be playing with this wool felt some more...probably for Christmas.

***Andrea's Blogiversary***

Andrea over at kimonos and sushi is celebrating her blogiversary with a giveaway. Happy Blogiversary, Andrea! Pop on over to find out how to enter.

Working on my current quilt project I began to realise that I just don't have enough time to make the fancy applique centre in the original design. So I decided to substitute it with a pieced block. I'll make the applique later and use it for a cushion.

Here's the design. I think it harmonises well with the rest of the quilt.

Happy 4th July to all my US readers and I hope everyone had an enjoyable weekend.

Happy Stitching

  2. You did a great job with the felt - very cute!

    I know what you mean about the appliqué, but that block will work just a well.

  3. Oh Ann, I love the felt pieces. They came out beautifully.

  4. I love to surf around and have a look at all the lovely work done by very talented ladies. The felt pieces and the colours in the block are devine.

  5. I love the felt pieces that you did! I use my EMB12 for my felting, although I hand felt when I want to make figures. So nice!

    Felting is so much fun. Just never seem to have enough time to get around to felting.
