Friday Night Sew-In and OPAM 2012!

Well, I was a bit more productive this FNSI than the last. I made three mini cushions and two mini hangings. I had finished the stitcheries on Thursday night so that they would be ready for last night. I'll finish stitching the binding down today. That's five Christmas gifts to go into the drawer ready for December!
I must say that it's a nice feeling knowing I have started Christmas sewing (although it also feels a little strange) so that I can be on top of it closer to Christmas!
I've signed up for Peg and Kris' One Project A Month (OPAM). Hopefully, this will help me keep inspired to get lots of gifts made throughout the year.
