2012 OPAM - The Final Countdown!

It's the end of 2012 and I can add a final 
two projects to my list.
I made Noel another hat for work.
The reverse side (although I don't think 
he'll wear it this way!)
 
I finally put my sewing caddy together. It is a Rosalie Quinlan design. You may remember this post last December when I ran out of the varigated thread with only a couple of inches to go. My lovely friend Jennifer found some left over in her stash and I was finally able to finish the stitching. 
It's only taken me another year to put it together!
 
My finished projects for 2012 totalled 85! I'm quite amazed at that. Thank you to Peg and Kris for hosting the OPAM. Signing up has kept me inspired to keep making. Next year I hope to beat my total for 2012
 (well, I'll try anyway).

Wishing everyone a very Happy New Year 
and hope 2013 is a good one.

Cute hat - glad he likes to wear them.

Lovely bag - that would be something I would do - leaving things half done for a year or more.

My new year will be filled with 'old' projects.

Have a wonderful 2013 with much stitching.

Well it's good to see the sewing caddy together. I am sure Noel will appreciate his new hat. At 85 that's 85 more than I have finished this year 2013 had better bee a finishing year for me!

What wonderful projects to finish out OPAM! Don't you just adore those ladies that head up OPAM!!! I could just douse them in hugs! I've finished more projects in the last two year (with OPAM), than in all the 35 years of quilting and other projects combined!

Love the basket. I have this pattern but have not made it yet. I feel inspired after seeing yours stitched in the variegated thread.
