The month of May saw a few more projects done and anything that gets done is a good thing!

While I was sitting with my BIL (who suffered a stroke May 2) during the day, out came my knitting needles and these are what were made:  4 dishcloths, 4 kitchen hand towels, 1 heart needle case


You know, in all the years that I have been sewing, knitting, quilting, I never made a needle case.  The ladies of the Northern Lights Quilting Guild (night guild) gave everyone the materials at their May meeting (when my quilt show Viewer's Choice ribbon was presented to me) and I was determined that it would get finished asap.  All that was needed from me was embroidery thread, needle and scissors (my apologies to Catherine for dulling her scissors cutting out the navy blue felt heart) and snaps to close the case and viola .... done!

I'm happy with my May OPAM (One Project A Month) accomplishments.

Have a great day!

Love the needle case. I finally made one a few years ago and it does come in handy. You have been busy with your knitting!

Oh, I love the new header that the summer back patio? That quilt is lovely, too. Finished is a good feeling, and that is a sweet needlecase - I've never made one either!

Funny how all us quilters seem to be taking up knitting too!! I have tried to put the knitting away for the summer but it is more portable than a quilt! I like your OPAM what a great idea. I consider an accomplishment to get to my sewing machine some days!
