April GDITC OPAM finishes

This past month I've been working on a couple of projects, not finishing many completely for OPAM but they're well on the way.

I did manage to finish two components of a project I'm working on though....both I purchased from the final Girls Day In the Country retreat in Nundle.  I never did get to go there (which I'd always promised myself I would) but I saw some kits were available from the weekend and decided I'd buy one, and I was not disappointed.

It was a wool applique and stitchery project on a piece of vintage quilt, nestled atop a chinese food steamer...a unique sewing box designed by Bonnie Sullivan and it's truly just gorgeous.  I've NEARLY finished it but not quite...just a tiny bit of embellishment to go.

BUT, I did have two finishes for OPAM from this project.....the two accompanying sewing kit necessities....a beautiful pumpkin pincushion, which is attached to the underside of the domed lid of the steamer.....

I've embellished mine with a gorgeous chiffony flower that my bestie Di gifted me.....and and cute printed needlebook with some wool felt, button and trim embellishments (also gifted) ....
I'm so happy with how these are turning out.  So that's two for OPAM for April....on track for at least one project a month!  Thanks Kris and Peg.....you're wonderful taskmasters!
