OPAM April finishes

Hello out there. Here are my 3 April finishes for OPAM - a folder, a pincushion and a wall pocket. All have been given away as a gift. I enjoyed embroidering the roses in various formats.

OPAM March finish

Note the singular - only one finish for March, and only finished her today - a little Tilda doll. She has been languishing without eyes or hair since January. I really must do better. I can't even upload a phot - my camera is not co-operating, adn the photo I took with my phone can't get through s my boys have used up all our downloads and we are sitting on dial up speed for a bit.

OPAM finish for February

Well, another month has rolled around and I only have one lonely little snail to share - snail pace is my speed at the moment.
With luck I will finish a couple of dolls this week - they were supposed to be done for February, but I have been lazy.
I am very aware that the world is in chaos - beautiful Christchurch will never be the same again, but I will still return to her for a visit one day.
A group of friends I belong to is making toys for Easter/cheer up for flood victims near us. There are so many groups making quilts and sewing kits, we wanted to contribute as well. We have some lovely tilda dolls, a frog, a snail, and a couple of other dolls. There is also a cat, a bear and a rabbit in the works. Some are just pretty things and some are cuddly.
I want to give to Canterbury in NZ, but am not sure where to start - they are still needing the very basics. I have left a message with a friend there to let me know what would be best, and am waiting to hear from her.

On a lighter note - OPAM January finishes

Well, I actually completed two bags over the weekend for some flood victims. I meet with a group of friends once a month - we started out many years ago creating cloth dolls. We decided that we would like to give to some of the nearly local people who have suffered badly in the recent flooding in Queensland. There are many groups making quilts and sewing things, and we thought things for personal use might also be needed. So, cosmetic bags with some toiletries, pretty things to make them feel good, pencil cases with some essentials for notes and lists, and some bags for them to use.
Here is a cosmetic bag and a little purse.
