My first LARGE project for January OPAM.
I started this project ages ago (in Winter I think) It's Leanne Beasley's Project from Homespun Vol 73 (10.6)
I loved the stitchery, it was so relaxing to do at night.....
So again I have "Used What I Have" to complete this project.
Now off to see what else I have to complete or get some more stitching done.

I think I can still do the "Buy No New Fabrics" too.

I'm on a roll today but these are only little projects.
And I'm embarrassed to say that this stitchery was actually completed after "Girls Day in the Country Nundle March 2009". It shouldn't have taken me this long to get it completed. This is exactly why I'm participating in OPAM this year.
As I have just finished the Springberry Needlecase, I decided to turn Rosalie Quinlan's needlecase in to a much needed "Rewards Card Holder". The needlecase is quite large, so it's actually a great size to find in my handbag. Let's just hope I remember that I've moved things out of my wallet and into this great holder?
This is a great start. I've finished my January Project already.
I changed the attachment of the felt and sewed it in down the middle.
I've had the morning to myself at home so I got straight in to finish it.
Now on to my February project.

I had the privilege of joining the Club Quilt girls in a stitching day at nearby Trangie.
We spent the day at Gai's Coffee Shop. Such a lovely relaxing day while Gai and her daughter waited on us. (Wonderful Food, Wonderful Service)
We stopped off at a Gift Shop first, where I picked up some supplies of Honey Mustard Dressing and Goats Milk Soap.
We also visited the local fabric shop where I found Metrosene thread that I've been after for a while and sewing machine needles.
Now back to the stitching.....
I may even get it made into a needle holder tomorrow and this will be my
first project finished for the month as I've also joined OPAM 2010.
Thank you for a lovely day ladies..... It was great to catch up. Look forward to the year ahead where I intend on getting back to my stitching/sewing days again.
