Nine days....

...and no blogging what so ever...
How could that have happened!!

First of all I want to thank everone that have made a comment and cheered me on and given me some hope to sew again... :)
Thankyou all.... :L
It means a lot!!!

Worktraining take all my energy and the sewing I´m doing there is the sewing Im doing... sort of... :)
Actually a little bit of time here and there...something gets sewn anyway...

I have started to quilt on the Stretched Stars that Kathie so helpfully gave me fabrics to...
and I added little stitcheries and will add buttons to the quilt later...
I just love this little quilt... :)
And what have happened to all the little snippets that were leftovers form the corners ...
Finally I can show you what it became...
a little pincushion or just a little pillow....

The half sq triangles was just 1 1/4" before they were sewn together...
this was so fun to challenge yourself to make up something from the little pieces...
thought it needed a little something so I added a little rose made of lace...

I really love the look of this one!...and there were still fabric pieces left I pieced a backside too...
So thankyou Kathie for sending me the little kit!!!

Hope I can mobilize my strength and get started with sewing and blogging again... :)
Please take care of each other... promise!!!

  33. Welcome back, your stretched stars quilt looks great with the plaids and country colours and how crafty are you with a little cushion made from the tiny scraps, I used to make things from the offcuts when I started patchwork but haven't done any in quite awhile.

  34. I love little things and this little quilt is adorable.
    Such a sweet little pincushion too. I like the lace rose accent.


  35. Love your scrappy stars! I am working on a similar pattern from Bonnie at Quiltville. Look forward to get it done;-)
    Hope your hand and finger will get well soon, so you can do a lot of sewing again soon:-) Find a good book (with a lot of fun quilting stuff inside) and hav some quiet moments, and it will heal faster:-)
    Get well soon!
