Where did July go???


July has been a hectic month for me, not much time in the sewing room…but today I am treating myself to a day in the sewing room and it is good..IPod is up loud…my boys are laying at my feet…(Ollie and Jarj our four legged babies)…what else could I ask for…..

OPAMers….it is time to tally up those finishes…adding them to your sidebar and sending either Kris or myself a quick email as we would love to hear about them….…hope it has been a good month for you all…

Happy Sunday
