A few finishes

I have been so busy with all those charms (cutting and shipping) for the April swap as well as doing some house works, so I haven't had much time for quilting - I mean; bigger projects.
I have made a few small projects though;
a pair of pot holders. I still have fabrics left from Debbie Mumm's 'Rustic Retreat' and I thought those cute houses will be nice for smaller projects.

I'm working on a table runner using chocolate prints, but ran out of coordinating fabric, which I'm expecting any day now... While waiting, I made a pair of mug rugs, using leftover fabrics.

I don't do much stitchery, which is something I love to do. A friend's birthday is approaching, she's an avid garderner, so I thought this little stitchery will do as a birthday gift.

Yesterday afternoon I pulled out some fabric I purchased earlier this year. (Forgot to take photos). 
When I purchased the fabric, I had in mind to make a table topper / runner. After some 'deep-thinking' I ended up making four placemat and today I'm going to finish the table runner top...

It's lovely to see your little projects. Sometimes they are a good idea for a break between the bigger projects.
They all great!

You've made some lovely little things there. I specially love the Garden Angel. Was that your own design?

Så rart med små projekt bland det "stora" du sytt den senaste tiden.
Gillar Skyddsängeln .

I enjoyed your blog this morning while drinking my coffee. I especially liked the fabrics you used in your mug rugs.... very pretty.
I recently saw some pictures of your island home. The pictures were stunning. Mauritius looks like a beautiful island paradise. I really enjoy that often you share the beauty and history of the place you live.
Have a great day!!

Your pot holders are so pretty! Too pretty to use! :-) But we never want to make ugly ones, do we?
