OPAM for March and a new machine."

Hello,

I haven't done much sewing at all the past couple of weeks due to a new machine but I did have a few finishes for OPAM One project a month kindly hosted by Kris and Peg.


 I made a few more pot mitts using up scraps.


 Then I made a pot mitt and two pot holders for a horse loving family member. I  plan to get some horse manure for the garden in exchange for these.


 Another face washer was made with some left over cotton.


This is the new machine, sorry not a sewing machine but a jackhammer, we have been digging up some of the back garden. Lots of clay here at Kainga. Hopefully April  will see a few more projects done.

How did you go with your projects in March? I would love to hear how you got on.

Happy days.
