Another OPAM Finish, Pinwheel Sampler

Here is my second OPAM finish for February. It is another Xmas wall hanging. I have had the stitchery done for quite a while and didn't know how to finish it until I saw a hanging in a Country Threads magazine and adapted it to fit my stitchery. The red Xmas fabric I had in my stash and when I saw the yellow fabric, it all fell into place. I tried to get red star buttons but couldn't find any so looked through my red button jar and came up with these. I am really happy with how it turned out. I have decided that I am going to try and make one Xmas thing each month so by the end of the year, I will have either lots of new decorations for my house or some nice gifts to give away. That sounds like a plan. Hope I can keep to it. I guess time will tell.

PS I Quilt has the first block of her pinwheel sampler quilt up on her website. If you would like to check it out, click on the button on my sidebar.
