Some of the items for the Culture / Christmas Fair in Norway

As you know from my previous post, I'm busy making items for the Fair that takes place in Norway at the end of November. Today I finally got around to take some photos of some of the items I have made over the last weeks. I am very strict on myself; I want to use up as much of my stash as possible and I don't allow myself to buy new fabric 'just for fun' - LOL! So far I have done rather well, but I must confess - YES - I have bought a few yards, which was needed or else I had not been able to finish some items. 

For this table runner I have used fabrics I bought a couple of years back. It looked beautiful, but when I received the fabrics, I didn't like them that much after all. Earlier this year I even tried to sell it... didn't sell either, so here's what came out of the fabrics...


Love the village scenery... :)


Couldn't help it! Some DM fabrics that turned into placemats








Mug rugs...


.... and more mug rugs


...two more... :) 


Some autumn / harvest pot-holders...




Christmas pot-holders





Egg cosy


Penguin coasters


... and two more...


...four more...



Some of the photos didn't turn out good enough, so I'll have to redo them. I have more items done and today I'm working on a table mat and a table runner. I also have several items where the only job left is to hand sew the binding.

My goodness, you have been busy. Great way of using up your stash, especially for those fabrics you don't care for anymore. Must take a leaf out of your book.

those egg cozies are too cute.
I bet that table runner sells real quick. It is really pretty. I like the snow scene.
