One Xmas Item A Month, OASS & Some Blocks

Finally finish my items.  I started them a few weeks ago then lost my mojo and put them aside, but today they are finished.  This time I made 3 Charming ornaments and found the pattern here at A Spoonful Of Sugar.  Though they took me a while to finish they are nice and easy to make.

(Trying to take the picture was a bit hard as every time I thought I had it right a breeze came up!!!!)

I have also made my item for my partner for the OASS swap.  I am sending to Peta over at Just Crafting My Day Away.  For her a made this basket.  I had made this pattern before in another swap so thought to do it again.  If you would like to make one just head over to Geta's Quilting Studio. Will be posting away tomorrow.

Then over at Our Craft Forum I am participating in the 2012 Monthly Block Sampler Experience and we got sent our first block at the start of the month.  This month  it was the Baby Bud Block chosen by Jeanette and here is my one finished

And finally, this month for the Australian Block Swap I sent to Cate and one of the blocks she requested was Square in square. Her colours were green, orange and turquoise so a made her this one.  Hope she likes it.

OASS Received

Just the other day I received a swap it the mail.  It was my OASS item I have signed up to.  The idea of the swap was to make something with the Autumn theme - here in the southern hemisphere it is nearly that time of the year.  Parcels are to be posted by the end off the month, so I need to get my sewing boots on and get mine completed.

My sender was Raelene from Raelene's Ramblings.  The tablerunner has now taken pride on my dining room table.  The colours are divine and she tried to get them as much like civil war reproduction fabric and has done a wonderful job at that too.  Also along with these I received a bundle of autumn coloured pens too.

Valentine's Day Swap Update

Recently I joined in the Valentine Day Swap that was being held by Amy over at Sew We Craft.  My swap partner was from over the ditch as we say and I hope she has received them.  It was a secret who we are receiving from so I wonder how long she will realise I was her sender.  Anyway, I made her a set of four heart coasters and I hope she gets to use them lots.
