More finishes.. OPAM & a winners gift. Binding blitz

I have continued with mums crafts.. This is what I have finished now...
Here is a bag pattern that I made at a retreat years ago... Mums was sitting there unfinished. Well it's finished now.... Not sure what I will do with it or where it will go.

Here is my beautiful grandson holding a funny coat hanger. My mum had started it and I finished it. Nick wanted to donate this coat hanger to his school for the Mothers Day stall... He is very happy..

I taught the Heathcote group how to make this bag. These are a great way of using up charm squares.
This adds another 44" to my binding total for the month..  Here is my finished one.

Then I made the cute napkin hold alls. Great for picnics... Very easy to make and fit packets of napkins easily. These will be sold on the trade table at the Kilmore Quilt show.

Then I made a little thread bag. I suppose it could be used for many things. A good way of using up 6" orphan blocks. That's my next project.... Make more!!!!!!!!
And another 17" of binding done.

I have done a total of 207" of  binding this month.

So here are 10 more projects finished for OPAM.
I was a lucky winner the other month for OPAM and I have just received a beautiful gift from Peg.
A lovely quilt project folder, a cool reel of thread that matches the fat quarter, 2 DMC threads. These just happen to be colours I use all the time. And a ring which I have already hung my cottage garden threads on.
Thanks again Peg. I will be joining in again this month
