April Projects .....

OPAM is hosted by Peg and Kris.....  this month I managed to  finish 5 projects.....

Mug rug, Table Topper, Scraps bucket and Dogs Blanket

and these cute little baby shoes

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 (my original plan was 1 a week so I feel very pleased when I over achieve on them!!)

Of the finished projects 2 of them were UFO's - I am always extra pleased when an old project is brought out the cupboard and finished....

I inherited these little snail's trail blocks - just had to remove the papers and put them together and add some flying geese to them

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

... this month all I managed was a block towards a Christmas project....

a little bit of progress is better than none....

So there we go..... last day of April ..... 

Righto, Gotto Go... working on some home made shopping bags.....  should get an early finish for May!


  1. You've had some good finishes this month. Sew nice to get UFOs done and those shoes are sew cute...
    Your DT blocks are beautiful.....
    Love the Christmas stitchery, it will make a lovely Chrissy swag.

  2. You have done a lot this month and all beautifully made, the christmas piece is really cute.


  3. Cute baby shoes , so right. Someone will look a treat, and bring many a smiling face to the little one.

    Love those snail trail blocks repurposed.

  9. Lots of great work there Fiona but always good to get some UFO's out of the way. xx

  10. Lovely finishes. Ironically I found lots of pieces of left over snail trail blocks from when I started quilting. I started making them up and then ran out of main fabric, but your little quilt has given me a good idea thanks!

  11. Lots of beautiful finishes there. Love your appliques...reverse applique? You have been very productive. How quaint are those shoes!

  12. You're getting quite far along on your Dutch Treat blocks! That will be such a gorgeous quilt when they are all finished. Remind me again what size are they?

  13. You're making me look bad, you over-achiever you....*giggle* LOVE your projects, especially those baby shoes, *swoon*!!!!!!!!!

  14. You should give yourself a pat on the back.. lots achieved and beautiful work, as always.
