OPAM September

September came and went, we are already a couple of days into October. 
Such dreary weather here today, it's good to snuggle up with a cuppa. 

I've been busy with this and that and everything. I'm waiting for batting and fabric to finish some items. It feels like shipping from the US takes forever this time. Isn't that typical when waiting for something?! Oh well, I'm not out of work! I'm currently working on some drawstring bags. I love making them, they are fun and easy to make. 

Here's what I have been up to lately. Oh, and I almost forgot the most important; I have a couple of UFO finishes! 

Log Cabin quilt in purple, black and white. 

To avoid buying more fabric, I added some strips to the back. It looks nice, I think... it adds some interest to the back. 

Another finished UFO from last year; 4 autumn place mats

I had some leftover fabric from some mug rugs I made earlier, just enough for a place mat or small table topper. I love sweet pea flowers! 

I couldn't resist some Holly Taylor fabric..... set of 2 place mats

I've had this cute gingerbread fabric stripe for quite some time and wasn't sure what to use it for. You may not believe me, but one early morning I 'saw' this runner in a dream... The vision woke me up, totally awake, and it turned out exactly like the one I 'saw'........... 

In addition to finishing these items, I have been playing with 1.5 inch charms! I'd never have thought I have patience for such tiny fabric squares, but yes, they are FUN, ... and a bit tedious! I have a few, small blocks, but that will be another post.
