February OPAM!

 
It's time for my February OPAM report.
 This month I made twelve lavender sachets.
My hoop for our Mill Rosie Friends Heart Swap.

Thirteen finishes this month. 
I've been working on lots of other projects too.

Thanks to Peg and Kris for organising OPAM.

A Rosalie Stitch-A-Long with Melody!

My lovely friend, Melody (The House on the Side of the Hill) is organising a United Stitches Stitch-a-long.
As not everyone has received their Urban Stitches kits yet, this month's linky is any Rosalie Quinlan design.
This is Rosalie's Welcome Friend project caddy.
I am really pleased with my caddy.
There is also a matching needle case.
But I made mine into a door hanger instead.

Have you stitched any of Rosalie's designs? 
Head over to Mel's blog to see what others have stitched. There is also a lovely giveaway.

Some thank you's

 My lovely friend, Shez, gave me some of her homemade goodies when we caught up on Saturday. Zucchini pickles and strawberry jam. She even has her own labels! 
Thank you, Shez.
Sharmayne from Country Fragrance recently celebrated her 5th anniversary of blogging. I was lucky enough to win some of her homemade soap. This one is spearmint honey. Along with some homemade lavender melts. Thank you, Sharm.
Have you seen the Sew Sweet Simplicity free BOM by Jacquelynne Steves? I'm not stitching along as I have too many other projects on the go at the moment but I've been enjoying seeing everyone's blocks. My name was drawn out by one of the lovely hostesses of Jacquelynne's Stitch A Long, Teresa from A Quilt and A Prayer. These are the patterns I won. Thank you, Teresa and Jacquelynne.

Mill Rosie Get Together!

 We had a wonderful get together at Mill Rose Cottage yesterday. This swap's theme was hearts. 
Once again there were some beautiful swap gifts made.
I received the gift that Marg made. 
This gorgeous little wall hanging will fit very nicely in my sewing room next to the hanging Fiona sent me for Christmas. It can now be my blue wall!
Marg also added some chocolate hearts, heart fabric and a little purse with 2 heart soaps. Thank you, Marg.
I put my heart into a hoop. 
This is one of Michelle's (Rag Tag Stitchin') designs.
My gift went home with Kim
along with some chocolate hearts too.
 I did manage to get a little stitching done!

We missed you, Mel (The House on the Side of the Hill). 
Liz did comment we were a bit quieter than normal. 
Must have been because you weren't there with 
your funny stories and infectious laughter!
