OPAM 2010


It's still cold outside. Even calico cat found himself a pleasant warm place in front of the central heating.

stay warm

I'm up in my attic dug around for unfinished projects.
I joined "OPAM 2010", The one project a month challenge 2010.


This will be my change to get some things finished.
My problem, you see, when I'm  in the middle of a project
I start something completely new!

So, here is a glimpse of  a tabble runner or mini quilt (not sure yet) I started here.
This will be my Januari challenge!

Corry, I think it’s a problem we are all dealing with! Starting something new when you want to finish other projects...

Calico cat is lovable!

Good luck with your challenge. I've just joined a group challenge to do 20mins of crafting every day and will be blogging about it soon. It's good to have challenges because it encourages us to try harder :-)

corry, I love embroidery...did you embroidery the middle square or was it from something else? I like it and can't wait to see what you create with it. Happy sewing!

Jackie said...

The cat is adorable and the stitchery is just beautiful. I can't wait to see it completed.

Love the cat, so bright and cheerful. Went back to the original post about the runner/mini quilt and it is beautiful, the colors go so well together.
Joined the same challange, better get busy now that the holidays are over.
Good luck

Good luck with the OPAM , I hope you have many lovely finishes !

Good luck on the OPAM challenge. Very pretty table runner! I can't wait to see it finished.

Oh you sound a lot like me! Thats why I decided back in July that I was going to get all the quilts that I had started done. And I have so enjoyed the finish quilts. I have now finished four and almost five. Now I still have two that I started and two that I have all the fabric for. So I must push myself to the finish line! But that's not counting all the knitting, weaving, and spinning that still needs to get done!

Leslie said...

Ipam .. Great idea! I love the tapestry!!

I too have loads of unfinished projects. OPAM sounds like a good idea. I already have one project with a deadline for Jan/Feb that I have not even started yet- a small (tabletop or wallhanging) quilt for a charity auction. (It's for a group that builds schools for children in Africa.)
Your table-runner/mini-quilt looks gorgeous already! You do such beautiful work.

Hi! My name is erica. Would you be my friend? said...

That cat is so adorable! :) And the table runner/quilt looks like it'll be gorgeous!

I saw the OPAM thing on Heleen's blog and I joined as well. We'll see how I do. :)

Jenni said...

Wishing you success as you finish your projects..it's a crafters dream to be so thorough!

Creative Breathing said...

Cory, Your January is making me smile! What beautiful projects! Such a happy visit! E

Melissa said...

That little peak makes me very excited to see the finish!

Moorea said...

What a fabulous idea! Good luck to you Corry.

Elly said...

Geweldig die kat! Je quilt wordt ook weer mooi zo te zien. Goed voornemen om elke maand iets af te maken!

lapai said...

Oh I should have joined that one with so many unfinished projects I have :/
Instead I joined Christmas Challenge to cross-stitch one Christmas ornament a month for the whole year. Right.

Kris said...

Oh I do that too, that's why I joined in with OPAM 2010! I think we will all have fun finishing things!

LiLi M. said...

Een half uur geleden had ik nog nooit van OPAM gehoord en nu lees ik de tweede post erover! Mooi streven! Mijn chileense blogvriendin Maria Helena heeft hele mooi resultaten gehaald met OPAM 2009, dat gaat jou ook vast lukken!

SD Janet said...

I love the start of a new project. Choosing the fabric, cutting out and sewing to see how it's going together, changing things to make it my own. I'm not so excited for the finishing up--sandwiching (love the quilting and binding part). I just need to get past the sandwich part. lol Love the kitty!

Cozy Little House said...

Such a cute kitty! Love its eyes! I have those unfinished projects. Yep, can't remember where they are though... If I can't find them, I can't finish them!

Hi Corry!
