Mug rugs and teapot cozies

I think it is time to do a blog post before I lose track of all the small projects I have made over the last weeks. 
You may know I looooove making Christmas items.... and I loooove making mug rugs....
Do you find it a surprise I have made some Christmas mug rugs?! :)
It's something with these Debbie Mumm fabrics, especially the 'Arctic Holiday'... it seems I can't get enough of them! :) I don't have much fabrics of these left now, perhaps I should say 'fortunate' ?! :)

Another pair of 'Arctic Holiday' mug rugs
(the colors didn't come out very well on these...)

A teapot cozy

 When I first saw the 'Maple Leaf Hill' by Kris Lammers, I fell in love! I didn't have any idea what to make, I just knew I had to buy the fabrics! I bought half yards, stripe and panel, because they looked gorgeous! It happens I get bored with fabrics I bought some years back, but I still love these fabrics and I have managed to use up almost everything! Several WIP's, waiting for thread... Hopefully I'll get the thread this week or next.
A few items are finished; 
... a mug rug (surprise!) :) 

... another one...

... a third one! 

... a teapot cozy too!!

You may guess why I have finished so many small items? :) Yes! I finished the Postage Stamp Quilt earlier this month, but I haven't got around to take photos... I shall see if that can be done tomorrow. I've also finished a blue crib quilt... have to take photos of that one too...

In the middle of the month we had lovely, sunny weather. We took advantage of the beautiful weather and went for a long hike. You can read / see photos from our hike here and here.

Wonderful mug rugs but I do think the Christmas tea cosy is wonderful.
So pleased you have completed your big quilt. Great!

Hei Astrid :-) Så mye fint du har lagd. Liker spesielt tekannevarmerene dine. Har du mønster på disse eller har du sydd etter hodet?
