My sewing table is a mess - and some finishes

I've been rather busy since my previous blog post. A dear friend in Norway is going to attend a Christmas Fair at the end of November and have asked me to make some items to sell. EEK! It took me some time to get going, but as you can see from the pic below; works in progress! I have made some potholders, coasters, mug rugs, egg cozies and cup cozies. If you look carefully at the pic below, you can spot some of the items. More photos to come. 

In between working on those small projects, I have finished a fall wall hanging.
When I bought those fabrics (some years ago), I found them too beautiful to be cut! LOL I have managed to use up almost all the fabrics and what was left I have cut into 2 and 2.5 inch squares.  

I love these fabrics and I think the stripe is so cute, featuring pumpkins and that darling little bird and birdhouse! :) 

The scarecrow...

...the pumpkins, sunflowers and birdhouse.

A matching table runner

Love the cornucopia and sunflowers :) 

Two cute penguins skiing! A pair of coasters

It's time for a cup of coffee and thereafter you will find me at the sewing table today! :)

Oh wow, you have been busy. Your table looks very "industrious". Our group took part in a charity Christmas bazaar last year and I know how much work it entails. Love the wall hanging too. Keep up the good work.
In case you need a pattern for a fast but very nice table runner goggle "20 min Tablerunner" or "10 min Tabelrunner".

oh my you are busy - I wondered why you weren't blogging but as soon as I started to read your post I remembered you said you were going to be making a lot of small things. Love the pumpkin fabric!

I agree that your sewing table is a mess. It looks a lot like mine. BUT, what marvelous projects you've completed. A messy table is obviously conducive to productivitiy. WTG!

Happy days.

Oioi så travel du har värt... :-)
Can see from your table that you are working on a lot of things at the same time. And they looks very beautiful. All creations needs some space, yes??
My sewing room is not that tidy either....
Wish you a great weekend.:-)

with all that stuff on your sewing table I know you have been busy because that is the way my table looks when I am busy.
