Table toppers and mug rugs

It's already September 1st! It feels like August was never there.... I think that means I have been busy?! 
Yes, I have! I have - still am - extremely busy making items for the Fair in Norway at the end of November. EEEK! 
I think it has affected my brain.... I wake up at around 4 o'clock in the morning - or should I say 'middle of the night' - with ideas how to design a table runner, placemats, mug rugs etc. This morning - at 03:30 (!!!!) I came up with an idea for a pair of placemats! Had to get up and note it down. Well, I have a little one who wakes me up that early almost every morning; our cat! He doesn't give up either, until I'm out of bed, feed him and let him out! Phew! :) That doesn't bother me, I've always been an early bird and I love the pristine early mornings. 
Yesterday I finally got around to take some photos of a few of my finished items.

Log Cabin table topper. 
Here I have used fabrics from Primitive Gatherings; 'Snowman Gatherings'
Lovely combination of navy blue, cream and white. 

I think those snowmen are just too cute! :) 

A small table topper, table mat or even candle mat

... and of course... mug rugs :)
These are from a Nancy Halvorsen panel; 'I believe'....

Most of the details I have outlined using matching quilting thread.

These mug rugs are all made of scraps from other projects. Happy to say I don't have much NH fabrics left... What I have left will be cut into 2 and 2.5 inches squares. 

I have several other finished projects, but no photos yet. Hope to get that done soonest.

We have such lovely weather this 'winter' and some days ago we did a wonderful hike at the South western part of the island. You can read about it here and here.

Sommeren har gått så alt for fort, har nesten ikke sydd noe. Likte log cabin brikka di, det er et mønster en aldri blir lei av:) Ha det godt!

I know the feeling when you can't sleep because you have so many ideas whirring around in your head. It seems you can single-handedly stock the fair with all your lovely projects.

Du har virkelig värt aktiv. Går ut fra at haugen med scraps har minket drastisk. Log cabin er alltid aktuelt.
Lykke til med production til markedet.
