The Love Of Eleven Makes One Elevenly*
A Whole 'In The Head'

One Door Closes, Another Door OPAMs.

And now, the final OPAM post for my 2010 goals. This month I made three small quilts, one for my Aunt, one for WeeNephew and one for BabyElectric. I used, respectively, some Saffron Craig, Thomas the Tank Engine and Very Hungry Caterpillar material. Here they are:

December 2010

I have made a mosaic for all the OPAM things I made. One Project A Month really gave me the impetus to finish things I started, once it was written down I felt compelled to complete the task. I shall be having a rest from OPAM this year: much as I enjoyed it, I think a little sabbatical is called for, a gentler pace in 2011 I think. Thanks to the hosts, Kris and Peg for the lovely year, and to everyone who left such lovely comments and gave me encouragement.

OPAM 2010

This post is no longer sticky. It will be a novelty to see something new when I post after a year with the same post at the top of my blog!!!


I have joined the OPAM. Although I managed to add the One Project A Month badge to my side bar I couldn't make it properly clicky, so I'm just making a sticky clicky post for the year. I have, strangely, worked out how to make the picture a link but it makes my blog slow to load- for me, so click on the clicky words.(See how technology is here to help us in the 21st Century??)

January: I have sewn a dress, which I do not love sufficiently. I shall sew another.

February: I have re-upholstered the new foam cushion for the Ottoman, I have finished the Wee Spawn's Ark embroidery to be sewn onto his quilt.

March: I finished the Tempest Cardigan. I may have finished the Stargate Cardigan (ran out of wool, had to order it online) and the Otto, but Harki died and so I lost the urge to carry on.

April: The base of the Otto was easy to cover and I love the new ironing board cover. It is so nice to iron on a firm foam top. The Chappa'ai Cardigan is complete but I don't like it and it needs fixing.

May: I have finished my quilt, made with lovely fabric from the Fat Quarter Swap.

June: I want to design and knit myself a pair of ribby mittens with an opening in the palm so I can whip my fingers in and out to give The Labradors treats and take a picture if I want to. I would also like to sew myself a tunic top. Now my sewing machine is broken I can't sew a tunic so I am knitting a pair of socks instead!!! The mittens morphed into a cowl for MrsDrWho. I was all swappy changy this month.

July:I stuck to my goal and knitted myself a pair of lovely mittens. Green and snuggly!! I am going to wear them tomorrow morning for the first time.

August: I met my goals, I drafted a skirt pattern and sewed a skirt so I am very happy indeed.

September: I made my camera case, it is very successful as I dropped my camera on the floor and it was very protected!!

October: This month I finished knitting three pairs of socks that had been languishing.  I finished The Mystery Socks, so a win all round.

November : I made an Advent Quilt.

December: This month I made three small quilts: a Thomas the Tank Engine, an A Very Hungry Caterpillar and one for my Aunt. (see above)




Happy New Year!! You undertook so much in 2010 between the cooking posts, opam and didn't you wear something homemade everyday for a month too?! You are very inspiring! Wishing you and the pups all the best for 2011!!!


Well done! Yes definitely time for a bit of a more relaxed 2011 after all that hard work. You must feel very proud of yourself achieving all those projects in a year though :)


Congratulations on reaching your goals! What a great selection of projects :D


You certainly achieved a lot this year doing OPAM....although I'd say you have completed more than OPAM sets out....good on you for being so productive!! :D
