A Finish and OPAM For October

It's the end of October and time 
to report on our OPAM's.
 
Christmas Hostess Table Topper
 Dresden Plate Table Topper.
 Four lavender sachets.
 A new finish is my chicken table topper. 
October seems to be the month of table toppers!
Thanks to Peg and Kris for keeping up inspired with OPAM.

Happy 16th Birthday Austin!

What does a boy do on his 16th birthday? 
He goes and gets his Learner's Permit! 
So back into the passenger seat I go! 

Happy 16th Birthday, Austin.
Lots of Love
Dad, Mum, Mitchell and Nelson

Some Lovely Quilts To Share

 
On Friday, Mel and I headed off to the Eastern Palliative Care's "Quilts Loved and Used" exhibition. 
Once again there was a lovely display of quilts.
 
This one was my favourite.
 
No, I hadn't finished my Double Wedding Ring.
This one was just lovely.
 We finished off the morning with a cuppa and some very yummy scones with jam and cream. Mel will have some more photos to share. The battery ran out on my camera!

Muck Up Day and Friday Night Sew In

The Year 12's had a wonderful time at their Muck Up Day. The theme for dressing up was movie characters. Here is Dumb and Dumber! That's James in the orange. I'm hoping someone got a group photo of everyone dressed up.
Thanks to Wendy for hosting us at last night's 
Friday Night Sew In.
I put together this table topper using chicken fabrics. 
It's for someone who has a country kitchen. I was able to make this with scraps from my Chook House quilt. Hopefully I'll get a chance to quilt it tomorrow.
 
I seem to be hooked on this little design by Gail. 
I finished stitching a fourth one and started on a fifth! 
I think this will be all of these ones for now.

Well, I'm off to NOTY's Guild meeting. 
Have a lovely weekend everyone.
