My first finish for the year!

I started this tablerunner in May last year. I've worked on it now and then but it has always been something I had to do first.

But now it's finished and I'm so happy about it!

FNSI - January...and OPAM 2014

Friday night it was FNSI and I worked hard and finished some secrets for the Initial Heart swap which I can't reveal before Valentine's day.
After that I started a new table runner I had cut the fabric for earlier in the week. So far it's looking good! I'm using a charm pack of La Belle Fleur by French General, a collection I really like! Well except for the blue "fence" which is a different fabric.

The pattern for the block is called Garden Fence and could be found here. I'm making 6 blocks for the tablerunner.

I've also signed up for the OPAM 2014, go check it out yourself and you can sign up too before February 1st.
Last year I finished 56 items. It's a great way to know what you have accomplished every month. Thankyou Peg and Kris for running this again!

My Friday night..

was spent with friends from all over the world because I joined with Cheryll and all the other lovely ladies in FNWF. Go here and check out what they all where doing.
I started out with making a Ohio star for a swap, can't show that just yet.

Then I turned to my hexies for a while.

After that I was knitting for the rest of the evening. I've joined the UFO blir FO under 2014 (UFO become FO during 2014). And for January I'm knitting on my Caramel. This is how far I've come.
