A custom order, other finishes and a new project

Early Tuesday morning and I'm having my cuppa - wonderful!
I love early mornings; dawn, birds chirping, the clouds and colors of the sky - pristine. 

Over the last days I have been working on a custom order; 4 mug rugs. 
It took some time from the order was placed before I started working on them. I had some of the fabrics and some I had to order from the US, shipping time is everything from 10 days up to 6-7 weeks. I'm not sure where it gets stuck! 

These mug rugs are gifts and they reflect the likes of the recipients; coffee, cupcakes, waffles and knitting, and your guessing is right; they are nurses. 

I hope the recipients will be happy! :) 

A finish; candle mat / table mat

Another candle mat / table mat

Remember the Christmas log cabin lap quilt I'm working on? 
It's almost done! I've left to hem the binding. :) 

I have some leftover fabrics from the log cabin quilt and decided to make another scrappy lap quilt
I need 20 blocks and I made 2 yesterday. Not sure I will be able to make 2 per day, but... let's see! :) 
Not sure I have enough of the background fabrics though... I have a little bit left of this one, should be enough for at least one block. A little bit left of the same but in green and a third one that is different in gold on cream. What I will need is fabric for the border and backing, should find something on sale later. 

My coffee mug is empty so I'd better get going with some (boring) housework this am. 

Have a great day everyone!

Some September finishes and WIPS


OMG! It's already October and I think I saw somewhere there are 18 Fridays to go - to Christmas! 

September was very busy and I know I have missed a lot of wonderful blog posts and other stuff, because there has been other things to give priority too. I always hope I will do more blog posts 'the next month', so let's see what happens this month. 

If you read my previous post, you may remember I had some WIP's. Some of them are finished, others not and some are still WIP's.
Here we go with the finishes!

Lauralie's On the Mend - Breast Cancer Awareness

Christmas / Winter candle mat / table mat 

Drawstring bag

Table runner

Autumn place mats - set of 4

Holiday place mats - set of 4.

 Holiday wall hanging

I didn't manage finishing the Christmas log cabin quilt, but there is progress! It is quilted and ready to be hemmed. I think I need a little bit more quilting where the blocks join... I shall see on that when the binding is done. 

I'm going to start working on a custom order to Norway; 4 Loralie's Nifty Nurses mug rugs. I've got all the fabrics needed and will work on that during the weekend. 
Here's the layout for one of them.... 

I still have the two table runners from my previous post to finish. I have left to hand stitch the binding on the green one and the red one is not yet quilted. I'm currently working on a drawstring / lingerie bag and have a couple of coasters to hem. I don't want to mention 3-4 big quilts that have to be done... LOL

Have a wonderful weekend!
