OPAM finishes for February, a gift in the mail and more......

I am finally posting my February OPAM finishes. I only have two little potholders. Not a very productive month for me. Oh well!!! I hope to do better next month.

I also received a wonderful gift in the mail.
 I actually won a giveaway on Jeannette`s blog, Serendipity Designs.
It is one of the Red Delicious blocks she made. I love it. I will make it into a lovely wall hanging.
Thank you so much Jeannette!!!


My mother-in-law asked me if I could make a baby quilt for her to give as a gift. She wanted it to be lime green and blue, since her friends baby room was to be decorated in those colors. Good thing I had bought some of those colors online earlier, because they are not popular in the local stores. I have made four blocks using the Cluck, Cluck, Sew! tutorial for double hour-glass blocks.



On another note, I just want to congratulate all the Canadian Athletes who participated in the Olympic Games. The games were amazing. The performances by all the athletes from all over the world was just wonderful. The winter games were so well presented, and really made me proud to be Canadian.
