Custom orders, Finishes and WIP's

I've been rather busy since my previous blog post. Except from sewing and gardening, the usual boring stuff; house work and grocery shopping. 
I know! I know! I'm repeating it all the time; the heat & humidity! The last couple of weeks have been hot! Hot! Hot! I'm tired of it! I'm longing for cooler days and hikes! Hikes in the wonderful Black River Gorges National Park... 

Oh well, while waiting for cooler days, I've been busy sewing. 
I'm excited to say I'm working on a custom order that goes to Canada; one teapot cozy with four matching placemats!

The teapot cozy is done. 

Today I finished the last of the 4 placemat tops... Here's a sneak-peak...
Love these fabrics! 

I've ran out of batting to finish the placemats, but fortunate my quilting friend came to rescue! :) 

Last weekend I finished another custom order;
A mug rug that is on the way to the US. 

A few other finishes - Set of 6 coasters.
(Soon to be listed in my shop). 

Set of 4 country inspired placemats

A table topper

Another table topper, almost identical to the one above. I've used another pink as well as green fabrics.
(These two table toppers will soon be added to my shop

A pair of mug rugs I put together while pondering over the placemats I'm working on... :) 

A pink/cream HST table runner.... Don't have matching thread for the binding so it has to be put 'on wait' until I get the thread from the US. 

GOSH! I have been productive! LOL
I'm also happy to say I have used fabric from my stash, except for the coffe fabric (mug rug) and the custom order (teapot cozy and placemats) I'm working on! 

For the first time we have avocados in the garden! 
Check out here what we had for lunch some days ago.

nice tea pot cozy - I need to make a new one for my pot - postage must be really high to ship all the way from you to Canada!

Hello Astrid,

Especially love the tea cosie. Great to hear that you have grown Avocado, they are rather expensive here at the moment.

Happy sewing

you have been very productive. love the tea cozy.
oh, I am so jealous that you can grow your own avocados. I would eat them every day if I grew my own.

Great work on the custom orders and I do like all the other projects, too. I am impressed that you are using your stash.
I would love to be able to grow avocados.
