april opam

Ok first off I want to say how crazy is it that April is over? Where did it go?

I don’t have many OPAM finishes for April. I did finish the cathedral window mini wall hanging that i started a few months ago, so I’m pleased about that. I’m grateful to Peg and Kris for starting this group as it does give me a bit of a shove along and has helped me to stay focused and complete things. (I am easily distracted) 


I also finished the little cardigan that I started on the last Friday-Night-Sew-In. I am not a great knitter but I am persistent and I have a mum that is a great knitter that I think sometimes regrets the fact that she taught me to knit lol as I call on her quite a bit to get me out of knitting chaos. But I think the end result was worth it.


I am still working on two small Mini Dresden quilts, i really need to get a move on because one of the babies one is for is due mid May. eeek What is an acceptable time frame after a baby is born to give a gift??? I hope it doesn’t turn into a first birthday gift!

During April i did a Kay D Haerland “postcards” workshop and managed to finish a few. I mentioned this in an earlier post and I am still quite in awe of her talent. She is an award winning landscape artist and my Postcards do not reflect her talent. Just her patience!


I also am very disappointed in myself that i didn’t finish block 4 “Dancing with Daisies” bom. I seriously don’t know where April went.

Bring on May I’m ready for you!



  1. Lovely finishes for OPAM! I too have been easily distracted!

  2. Lovely version of cathedral windows.

    Answering our creative questions is part of mum's job - she probably loves it!

    Enjoy your winnings.

  3. I think the wall hanging is beautiful. I rang Liz and gave her the blog address so she could see for herself. You are amazing.
    Love Anne
