One Project A Month January 2011 OPAM


I joined in the OPAM with Peg & Kris and it really motivated me to finish some things!
This is a set of burp cloths that I gave to my neice for a gift!
 
This is how I packaged them. Remember the paper flowers that the
Grands & I made?

Yes, I know that you have saw my dish cloths before but I absolutely loved crocheting them.
The top 2 here are some of the ones I made. 
The white one my BFF Vicki made and the blue one I
received in a dish cloth swap.  I just wanted to show you my little stack.

I have worked on this little baby quilt for quite a while.
I finally completely finished it and it is ready to be a gift for someone special.

Yes, I know.....Dish cloths again!
I can't help myself.
I probably have made 15 but gave most of them away.
Remember I am addicted.

I know that you saw this in another post but wanted
to include it in my OPAM finishes for January.

Here are some more burp cloths for a special little baby boy.

I also added a couple of pacifier clips to go with this gift!


And yes, I know you saw my fabric Christmas bags already but I just had to show them one more time.

*********************
One thing that I have always had a problem with is finishing things!
I have finally figured out to pick projects that are easy to finish.
So these challenges are great motivation for me.
A Special "Thank You" goes to:
Peg & Kris with the OPAM Challenge &
Allie with Christmas Through The Year Challenge &
Heidi & Bobbi with the Friday Night Sew In

You have just got to go and check out Sweet Teen's blog!!!
She did a project for school and it is awesome.
I am so proud of her and she is so gifted.
She is also my "Blog Pick" of the week!

Today I am thankful for ...................encouragement.

You have been one busy lady! Love seeing your discloths. I remember when you posted a pic of the first one you finished and how excited you were. I told ya! Crocheting is addicting.

The gift sets you've made are lovely. Congrats on all your projects you've finished. Can't wait to see what you make for next month.

If you're in the path of the latest winter storms, stay warm and safe.
