March Projects.....

Having had a retreat this month got some of the bigger projects worked on ....

OPAM is hosted by Peg and Kris.....  this month I had 7 finished projects.....

(embroidered cushion, bag, raggy quilt, fabric card, wallhanging, scrap basket and cot quilt)

Finishing Stitches is hosted by Joy and includes UFO's that blocks have been made towards a finish

The main one I am doing is Dutch Treat which is all hand applique....

I got 10 blocks done this month for it....

Of the finished projects 4 of them were UFO's - I am always extra pleased when an old project is brought out the cupboard and finished....

Another of my monthly challenges is a Christmas Item each month hosted by Narelle....

The wallhanging fitted into this category

... and I completed 2 blocks towards a Christmas project....

I've made this banner before and loved it - this time it will be for a gift

So there we go..... last day of March..... It's my husband's birthday and my late nephew's too - as well as a couple of blog friends... thinking of you all...xx

We had a good 70+ mls of rain.  No cylcone where we were but the rain was in Debbie's tail.... luckily no flooding here but the worries aren't over for everyone else.... take care peoples.... xx

Righto, Gotto Go... haircut today ......
