Sunday fun.... means sewing...:o)

and home alone...
is even better... 
and I had so much fun making theses little ones...

The Tuffets.... 
The strips is just 3/4 " and wohhooo I like it..:o))

Guess I am a little bit crazy... almost the smaller the better...
but for the nine patches.. I really really had to hold my tongue right... 
finished blocks are 1"..;o)

I had thought of making just one...;o))
But had so many strips left from the charmpack...
Rural jardin.. so I had to use up them all.. well almost.. 
still a few left though..hmm... can I make

So a little eye candy for you all..

Cute.. yepp they are..:o)
Smallest one is 3" big..or little..:o)
And largest 5"

This was the December challenge in the Year of Schnibbles...
And can cross them from my to do list too.. and guess what..
Have made all 12 projects.. 
and they are all finished too.. 
Quilted and bound...
no UFO´s in the cupboards..
I think its a WOOHHOOOO to me!!!

Hope for a day with out rain tomorrow...
then I will take all my Schnibble quilts out for some air.. :o)
and a photo shoot... 
so cross fingers.. no rain.. please!!!

And now .. the BED!!! And some exercise.. 
maybe I have to do that before the rest...;o))
phheew.. I am so pleased with myself...

I DID IT!! :o)

  4. Så utrolig nydelige disse er, blir glad av å se de flotte fargene. Og for ett pirke arbeid.....
    Du har jo bare vært så flink med Schnibble prosjektene - og de er like fine alle sammen. Jeg oppdaget Schnibble gjennom din blogg - hadde sett dem før, men det var her jeg virkelig SÅ dem :o) Har kjøpt noen mønster, bestilt bok og skal ha flere mønster..... men må først sy noen av de jeg allerede har :o)
