Last Nights Results, OPAM finishes

Well it was an interesting night.  I ended up having some unexpected grandson sitting duties so my plans to get lots done sort of went by the way.  Having said that, after getting Jacob settled into watching some car racing with Grand-dad, he  ended up falling asleep so I popped over to my room and got this done.
I am making some mug rugs for my family and adding their names to them. I finished the quilting and added the binding, just need to hand stitch that back. Below are two more.  Need to add the names and stitch.  For those who don't drink tea or coffee, I am making smaller square ones. 5 more still to prepare and stitch.  
I needed a break from these so started to cut out some squares for Xmas bunting.  Got the kit from Sweetwater last year. Three pieced triangles and 4 striped. Have four printed labels to go on the striped ones. Hope to get it finished to hang up this year.
It was getting late so went back inside to wait for Jake's Dad and did a bit of stitching on this Gail Pan free ornament  pattern until he got back. So it ended up being an okay night and I was happy with what I managed to get done. The prep work always takes the longest.
Now I am going to go and check out what everyone else did last night and do some blog hopping.
Oh, before I go, here are the two mug rugs I have already finished.  Added some buttons to mine.

Till next time Happy Stitching..........
