OPAM Finish - September

After not finishing anything last month I thought I should make the effort and finish two things for September.  This is a sewing machine cover and I am rather pleased with the final result.

I'm also going to count the little bag I made for the Friendship Bag Swap. I'll be posting this swag of goodies tomorrow. I'm not allowed to reveal the secret identity of my swap partner but I think I can safely say she is in Europe.

Among the Gum Trees is a fantastic new blog hosted by seven Australian designers. They have amazing giveaways and free patterns to download.

I learned about it from Lena in Norway! Go figure

Take one of these...

Moda Soiree Honey Bun
Rearrange it slightly...

And hey've made one of these!

Okay, I had some help from Rachel over at p.s.i quilt. Thanks Rachel - you're the best!

This is the Friendship Bag I have made for my secret swap partner. Now I'm filling it with goodies.

I also started on another project using these.

Last, but by no means least I won a prize in LeKa Quilts giveaway. Thank you Lena, I'm looking forward to receiving a parcel from Norway.
