A finished project... and my OPAM finishes.

The hands belong to my lovely son Sam and his family.

The idea for this little wall hanging came from an image posted on the Flickr Embroidery Group stream of Feeling Stitchy.  There are over 73,000 images of fabulous stitching.  Sometimes I make myself a cup of tea, sit comfortably and watch the slideshow, my eyes wide with astonishment and I wonder at how clever and inventive people can be.  I can't imagine how long it would take to view all the pictures but I do love to dip in and out and gain inspiration.

This month I had 21 OPAM finishes.  They were -
1 wall hanging for Sam's family

5 Scissor Fobs
7 Felt Brooches
3 Needle cases
1 Candle mat
3 Hexie flower coasters
2 Healing Hearts

PS My lovely friend Kelli, over at Seriously... I think it Needs Stitches is having her first giveaway.  Please call over and join in the fun.
