End Of Month Run!

PHEW!! Not much to show for the month until the last few days ... and now I have TWO finishes to add to my tally ... story of my life, leaving things until the last minute! :0) The first finish was my "French Amour" quilt ... it came back from the quilter's this week (thanks Rosalie!!!) and the binding was stitched down Thursday. I've yet to take a good pic of it, but will try to do that tomorrow ... if the weather cooperates! :0)

The second finish got added to the list this afternoon. I've been meaning to make myself a new earbud pouch for quite a while. This is the pouch that came with the earbuds ...

... a bit boring and it kept slipping open so the spare buds ended up at the bottom of my handbag ... not a good place for them! :0) So ... I had a little play with my left over Rouenneries Deux fabrics ...

... Ta Da!! Simple, but much prettier and stays closed, too. This fabric was a 'cheat' patchwork one and I fussy-cut it to get the cute birdy on the front.

Ready to be stored in my bag until I want to listen to some tunes. Hmmm ... Loreena McKennitt was my listening pleasure this afternoon. :0)

So ... OPAM gals ... how did YOU go this month with finishes? Have you updated your sidebar list and sent Sweet Peg or me an email with your tally? You'd better make like the Easter Bunny and 'get hopping'. :0) It's the last day of the month and Sweet Peg and I will be blog hopping in the next few days, so get updating and emailing!!!! :0)

Righto ... off I go. Am undertaking my absolute FAVOURITE passtime ... instruction writing ... NOT!!!! Will be back soon to show a pic of my finished "French Amour" quilt. Hope you're all having a great weekend so far and managing to enjoy some quiet time to kick back, relax and stitch. Til next time ...

BEAR HUGS!
CHEERS!

Love the little bag - very cute. I'm onto my finishes for the month - much better than I thought they would be, that comes from having a week away from all the kids and finding some quick to finish projects helped. Hoping for some good results in April as well. Thanks for the organising of OPAM - does keep you moving. Cheers

So glad you found a very cute and practical reason to have a rest from the all important instruction writing.
Pretty little baggy, she won't get lost in the dark depths of the handbag.
