OPAM for April

 A day late for my OPAM report with only one finish this month. 
I did finish my House Rules stitchery but haven't done anything with it yet.
Thanks to Kris for keeping us inspired.

Friday Night Sew-In

 I made the star to go on my Nativity. 
For such a small star, it was very fiddly.
All finished!
This is for my niece, Alisha and her soon to be (less than two weeks) 
husband, Michael. Alisha asked me if I could make them one as a wedding gift. 
Then each year when they bring it out at Christmas, 
they will think of us and their wedding day!
Thanks to Wendy for being the hostess with the mostest!
You can see what others got up to here.
Happy Easter!

Friday Night With Friends

I finally got the binding on and began stitching it down on the Nativity. 
I haven't stitched the top binding on yet as I'm still deciding how I am going to
 hang it - with a rod pocket or tabs. It will either be hung with a 
gold rod and cord or perhaps a star hanger.
Saturday was spent with the Chit Chat Crafters. 
This time we didn't work on our stitching, we had a special project.
We decorated magnets with "Diamond Dots". 
There wasn't much chit chat as we were all 
concentrating on the task at hand!
 You can see where I have worked on the bottom section. 
It was actually quite relaxing.
 All finished!  I really enjoyed making this but I think it will be a one off.
 Thank you to Chez for hosting us.
You can see what the others worked on here.

OPAM for March

 I'm a bit late with my OPAM report for March. It totally slipped my mind!
I finished the two folding bags for the girls' kitchen teas.
Thanks to Kris for keeping us inspired.

Vale Dad

Last night the world lost a very special person. 
My beautiful Dad passed away in Mum's arms. 
He will be greatly missed by us all. 

A very special Pa to his grandsons, 
Mitchell, Austin and Nelson, whom he adored. 

Rest in Peace, Dad. Forever in our hearts.
