In between sewing for the Culture / Craft Fair in Norway, a few hikes, housework, gardening etc, I squeezed in time to finish a UFO. It was almost done earlier this year and what was left to do was hand-stitching the binding and outline the details on the panel blocks. I spent some days at a dear friend's place at the coast for about one week and between chatting and eating - :) - I managed to get a lot done - almost done!
I have used fabrics from 'Love is' collection by Nancy Halvorsen together with white tone-on-tone.
To make the squares fit the panel blocks, they had to be cut as rectangles.
I had fun making some coasters and here are a couple for chocolate lovers! :)
A Christmas stocking, where most details are outlined.
I love making mug rugs and here's Santa skating! :)
I got obsessed using up some black & white scraps, which turned out to be 12 mug rugs!
Set of 4 floral coasters
A table runner
... and 2 matching place mats
More mug rugs - for Valentine's Day?!
Another set of two...
...the last two...
These items are for sale in my Etsy shop.
I've loved making these small items, especially since I haven't felt for making quilts. I still have two UFO's - queen size quilts - that has to be done. One is ready to be quilted and the other one needs backing.
We had a lovely Christmas Eve together with our friends. These days are lazy days and no sewing at all... I use the dining table for sewing and every Christmas I take a break from sewing... I must confess today I missed it, but to comfort myself I had a look at some of my stash and discovered some flannels I had forgotten... :-0 The idea now is to make a baby quilt - or two - using the flannels in blue and pink.
