OPAM - November Finish
Thank you all so much for the lovely comments and compliments. I have been quite overwhelmed by your generosity.
I haven't done much sewing of late - nor blog visiting after our pc keeled over in the extreme heat a couple of weekends ago. I wasn't far behind.
I did make this little Christmas bag which featured in Homespun (Vol 8 No 11). The design is by Marg Low and her Santa was made from punchneedle. I substituted applique instead. The finished size is about 7 inches square and I'm filling it with Christmas treats for a friend.
I also made this Christmas heart from Handmade magazine substituting the felt for a reproduction print. I borrowed Leanne's technique by adding some Pellon on the back before stitching the lettering. It gives a nice effect. Thanks Leanne!
That's it for now. I'm off to visit some blogs and catch up on all that you have been doing.
