Can anyone tell me where the days, weeks and months go?! It feels like it was Christmas and New Year only some days ago and now - 'suddenly' - Easter is here!
Since it is already end of March, and I haven't done a blog post for three weeks, it is time to show what I have been doing this month. :)
Yes, I have been working on the UFO's mentioned in my previous post!
The coasters are done and 'of course' did I get carried away by making the most out of those fabrics; 'Rustic Retreat' - Debbie Mumm.
The first set of coasters - those I promised to make for my dear friend Johnny last year.... 'Sorry dear, for the delay - they will be on its way next week!' :)
I have more of those log houses, so decided to make another set of coasters...
I had more of the loon / duck stripes left and couldn't resist making some mug rugs...
Isn't that loon beautiful?!
... and two more...
If those weren't enough... a wall quilt too! :)
It all started with the log house in the center... and the first idea was to make a table topper... After some debating with myself as well as emails to/from Johnny, we decided to make a wall quilt.... I added the loon/ducks and feather stripes and the cream sashing... then came the idea to add the canoes... Then I got stuck for some days.... until I one early morning remembered the bed cover I made for his four-poster bed.... I knew I had to add log houses around this one too! :)
The quilt top is done... I have the backing and batting, but don't ask me when it will be completed! :)
Making these small projects, I used up almost all the fabrics! Hurray! What is left is a small piece of the cream, small pieces of the stripes and log houses... Perhaps there will be enough for two more mug rugs... (got an idea just now...) :) What is left I will cut into 2 and 2.5 inch squares for a postage stamp quilt... :)
I love the idea of using up as much as possible of fabrics and I think I succeeded very well making these projects! :)
