OPAM/1 Xmas Item a Month finish, 12"Mini Swap.

The past week has been a bit of a blur with Jake (my GS) home from school with an infected knee due to falling off a friends bike. With visits to the doctor's surgery each day for dressing changes, entertaining one bored 10 year old with lots of word search games, the days just flew by. He is on school holidays now so his Mum is looking after him for a few days.
On Sunday I finally got into the sewing room to put the last stitches into my 12"mini which is now finding its way down south to a new owner.
This is all I can show at present until I hear it has arrived.
I received my mini from Kim today and I must say I love, love, love it so a big Thank You  Kim. I haven't got around to taking a photo as yet but will do so tomorrow and post it very soon.

My one finish for OPAM and 1 Xmas Item a Month is a Angel Xmas ornament. I love this pattern and have made quite a few already with still more prepared ready to stitch.
This one I decided to put some little rusty bells around the outside and am really pleased with how it looks. What do you think?
Well it is late and I am going to help my son clean out his garage tomorrow so an early start is on the cards.
Till next time........ Happy Stitching.........
