Tiny stitches on the kangaroo and on the little koala ,luckey me even got some Maltesers … Thank you my secred santa Christmas swap partner. Promice to wait untill Christmas with the main gift..but it will be difficult ….This spring I made me a little fairy garden…Sweet smal plants,some from Australia the labell tell….I have not been to satisfied with them,not growing ,but not ready to be in trash.It has been like they where saying : OK,I’m alive ,but it is not OK…Untill now,when the snow and cold weather are here in Norway,they start growing . So now I soon got a big fairygarden 🙂 Yesterday I made some secred small Christmas gifts ,and suddenly I was playing with selvages… I realy dont know how it happend,but I’m satisfied with the result … new coffeecupsleeves. Some of the selvages are so beautifull so I have to make something with them…
Have a great Christmas time,and do something fun..
Early winter days are pefect for indoors playing with fabrics. New magazine are so great to get in the mailbox. My newest magazine are Patchwork and Quilting,in nr fifty four Tori Smith has great patterns called Anything Goes.. I just had to made the small items.I spend some fun and busy time looking at my ‘ why did I bougth that fabrics’ I had some fussy cutting to do. And I found a lot of tiny great pieces to use… some new and a lot of old fabrics,but AS named Anything Goes 😊 I will do more of the fussy cutting,it is so fun ❣️
This morning I was so Happy I could stay at home… there was a lot of snow,and started to rain a lot … A great sewing day listening to Christmassongs on the radio,Happy no one heard me signing .LOL Out doors ,now in the evening, there are ice all over –and I have to go shopping to morrow… I have to put on ice spikes on my shoes and walk careful. I have no need to fall,not even for testing my osteoporsis… 😉
Let the weekend joy begin . Every item match my tablerunner….
I have some Christmasgift knitting and The wicked hex mini quilt ( pattern by Libs Elliot) to play with.
For the last years there has been some knitting fun at FaceBook,this year I will make me a new shawl and Christmas mittens. We got one clue every week .A little behind on the mittens ,but I will be fine before Christmas …
Not the best photo,but here are so fare I got with all the Splendid Sampler blocks… They have been put away for sometime,but now ,together with a few more ufoblocks they are my new winter quilt.
So now the snow and cold time can come any day,I can stay warm. 😉
This is the first time I blog from my phone… still something new to try… but it feels great. May be I can blog more … can’t promise something but I will try..
