My contribution to Anthea's  EPP Tuesdays is a bit of a secret. Previously I showed you a couple of blocks from "The New Hexagon" book . Since then I have remade one of the blocks with different colours as I felt it looked a bit pale and I have also nearly completed the project but cannot show you much of it as it is a shhhhhhh project. So here is what I can show you.

A while back I started stitching Michelle's  new Christmas pattern which I am making into a small table mat . It is nearly finished now, just 4 more to sew onto the middle block. 
After a little break from hand applique to give my fingers a chance to heal, I have now nearly finished stitching the squirrel on the cot quilt and just have the bird and part of an owl's face to complete. Then I just need to add the borders and I will feel that it is nearly finished. Hopefully, it will be ready in time for my grandchild's birth in February.
Thankyou for visiting me.

I have a couple of things to show you this time. My final Lucy Boston "Patchwork of the Crosses" block.
These Lucy blocks have challenged me with a lot of fussy cutting but I have now become a little addicted despite endless frustration. I am making a small project as a gift for someone using some hexies from " The New Hexagon" by Katja Marek. As you can see, this one is fussy cut and I love how it looks.
The second block isn't very impressive. No fussy cutting but I liked the purple fabric.
So, that's my contribution to Anthea's link up this week. Pop on over to Anthea's to see what she and others have been doing.

 I have only just ironed the last Lucy Boston "Patchwork of the Crosses" block and now I am planning the fussy cut filler blocks so I can start piecing the quilt together. Unfortunately the fussy cutting in this block isn't 100% accurate but I will never finish the quilt if I start reverse sewing the blocks that aren't entirely precise. So, here it is. Dahdah!!!


Here are the Aussie Christmas critters ,( as I call them), ready to make into a table mat when I find suitable fabric. This pattern is for Christmas decos from Michelle, but I decided to make them into something else. They are so cute. They are quick to sew , so pop on over to Michelle's blog if you wish to make some in time for Christmas.

Now I can get back to the crib quilt appliqueing and finish crocheting the baby blanket.

                  I only have one completed project this month. I suppose it is better than none.

So many projects on the go but a while before they will appear under the banner of O.P.A.M
