Snowmen in the tropics!

I hope you don't get bored with yet another post from me today?!
I took photos of some finishes earlier today and even if I can't show them all - some of them are secret Christmas gifts! - I have a few that are not gifts! :)
If you read this post, you know I pulled out some cute snowmen fabric and was in the progress of making table runners. I got totally obsessed by it and decided to make whatever possible of the leftover fabric (from a wall quilt).
Here's one table runner...

I have not counted how many projects I got out of the leftover fabrics (from a wall quilt), but there should be 12-13 altogether; table toppers, table runners, place mats, card holder, mug rug... I think that's all!
I have ran out of quilting thread, fabric for the binding as well as batting for the rest of the projects. Thread and fabric are on its way from the US and batting I buy here. I'm using a very thin polyester batting for table runners, table toppers etc.

A wintry mug rug...


I still have some leftovers and I have yet to decide whether they go into the scraps or I make something out of it....
I cross my fingers and hope the parcels from the US are not delayed so that I can finish those projects this month itself!

du har sydd mange flotte ting av de stoffene du fant i dine gjemmer. Bra å ha ting ferdig i god tid.

Vad fina de är, dina dukar. Roligt att göra slut på rästerna, eller hur? :-)

I love the little mug rug. Snowmen are favourites of mine. I must get busy on my embrodery and get my new pattern done up.

Hei Astrid. Så masse fint du har sydd. Kjempesøte snømenn. Og du har blitt kjempeflinkt il å frihåndsquilte. Jeg kjenner at det er noe jeg må prioritere å lære meg når jeg får den nye maskinen min :-)

Lovely table runners. I hope your orders from the US arrives ASAP so you can carry on finishing your other projects. Meanwhile, take a break and have a cup of coffee :)

Det er kjempefint det snømannstoffet. Det er en deilig følelse å få brukt opp rester. Flott ting du har sydd.
