Kitchen Magic & OPAM Winners!!

Here we are again ... Monday has rolled around ... I'm sure I've only just got over LAST Monday!! :0) But ... since we HAVE to be grown ups, we're muddling along into the start of the week. I thought I'd start by giving a little round up of Mum's and my kitchen magic brewing session. Our final tally was ...

... a batch of Tomato Jam, a batch of Plum Jam, a batch of Lemon Butter, a batch of Chilli Jam, a batch of Melon Ginger & Lemon Jam and a BIG batch of quince paste ... YUMMO!!!! It was so much fun to hit the kitchen with Mum and VERY satisfying to see all those colourful bottles of goodies lined up at the end of the day, knowing that not only do they taste great, we know exactly what's gone into them. :0)

After our big kitchen session on Saturday, Sunday was a bit more laid back ... a bit of gardening and a bit of work on a new project for our new dining table (which I haven't remembered to take a nice photo of yet - OOPS!!

 ... some blue and green spotty dotty fabric teamed with white ... a future table runner. :0) I promise to show you how it turns out. There's also been a bit of handstitching, but no finishes this weekend. Soon ... ! :0)

And speaking of finishes ... it's that time when my GORGEOUS Partner-In-Crime Sweet Peg and I hop around blogland like crazed frogs on speed (THERE'S a mental picture for you! Tee! Hee! Hee!) to collect last-minute finishes for OPAM. Sweet Peg has already done the January prize draw, so make sure you  pop over to visit her to see if you're one of the lucky winners. And it's my turn to do the January draw. (By the way ... don't forget that we usually trade month about for doing the prize draw, so it's a good idea to visit us both or pop us on your list of blogs you follow.)

Firstly ... a big CONGRATS to everyone for their stitching efforts for the first two months of the year! There sure have been some flying needles and overworked machines to kick off 2015! :0) There were

366 Finishes for January; and

397 Finishes for February!

WOW!! Well done, gals! And even if you weren't on the finishes list, but you made some progress on some longer term projects ... then well done to you, too! Remember, OPAM is all about taking a bit of time out for yourself, a bit of time to recharge your batteries, a little bit of time to be creative ... all of which warms and nourishes our souls. :0) OK ... so February's winners are:


Congrats, gals! Drop me an email with your snail mail address and there will be a little surprise coming your way in the mail ... as soon as I get myself organised! :0)

Righto ... I'd better toodle off and do something about dinner ... my Beloved Geek Boy and I are off to study tonight. Hope your week is off to a fantastic start and that it continues in the same pattern. Til next time ...
