OPAM October Finish



The miniature stars in reproduction fabric are now finished with some simple quilting using YLI thread. I haven't used this thread before and chose it because it was a good colour match. I like the wooden cone that in comes on and it was nice to sew with. My favourite quilting thread so far is King Tut.

Good news!

My Friendship Bag arrived and it's just delightful.



It was made by Jennifer from the United States and you can visit her blog here. As you can see, Jennifer sewed on the little yellow flowers and beads. Isn't she clever!

The colours are so pretty and there are self threading needles, some fat quarters, a message note pad. Jennifer has even sent along some of the beads she used on the bag.

I just love it! Thank you so much Jennifer.

Now back to work on a UFO.

Happy Stitching
