OPAM finish, 12 UFO's in 2014, other bits and pieces.

This is my finish for 1 Xmas Item a Month. I have already blogged about it on the blog set up by Narelle from Pins and Whiskers but needed to add it to here for OPAM.
Christmas Treats table runner. Below is photo of how I quilted it. 

I also need to show my Table runner as I forgot to say in my last post that this is my May finish for 12 UFOs in 2014 hosted by Marti. The parade of finishes will be on Marti's blog at the end of the month if you wish to check it out. Just click on the logo on my side-bar to go to the blog. Thanks to Marti for hosting and encouraging me to get a few of my UFOs completed.
I have also been working on a couple of other things.
My Sunday Stitchers blog group are working on Gossip in My Garden by Anni Downs. I am playing catch up but here is the block I am working on at the moment.
I am using Nancy Halvorsen fabrics and some other background fabrics that I have had in my stash for a number of years. Am pleased with how they are looking so far.
I have also joined the Fat Quarter Shop's Wishes Quilt Along. This is the first block. Have a few more blocks to make to catch up with this one as well.  I bought the fabric kit from the FQS and a new free block is put on their blog each month for you to download. You can make a donation to the Make a Wish foundation and the FQS will equal the amount donated to help this wonderful cause.
On Friday, 8 of the ladies from my quilting group are going on a bus trip with the Beenleigh Quilters to The Bribie Island Quilters Show. Looking forward to this outing.  
Well that's all from me today, must get out to my room now and get some preparation done for Chookyblue's Sewing weekend. If you wish to join in and stitch along to help Chooky celebrate The Chookshed's 2nd birthday, go over to here, read about it and add your comment to her post.
Till next time..............Happy Stitching..........
