Christmas Sewing...

 It's that time of the year...
Even I have jumped on that train...

I put on some Christmas music...
Celebrated Christmas Sewing using my

...Christmas Pincushion...


Love that it's rather big and soft...
And keeps my needles tight and deep...
Perfect when a doggy nose comes close for inspection...

Made a tutorial on this one last year
You can find the tutorial here


Good luck!!

This day I hadn't something in mind
Oh yes I had...just kidding...;0)
But don't know what happened...it didn't turn out as I had planned!!!

In a quite crazy mood...
I went to attack at my fabrics..

Had JUST DO IT...in my mind all the time...
Don't think..
Just do it!!

I picked fabrics that spoke to me...
not thinking if they were going to suit the owner...

I just cut up strips and happily sewed away...
and all of a sudden it was born a crazy
and busy "thing"
made during a creative attack...


Now it's on a journey with a destination 
So Shirley...put on your sunglasses at Christmas Day!! ;0)

After some frenetic searching in my cupboards..
I found my next targets...
Two unfinished gifts 
(2 years ago)
That this year will be delivered!!

So I'm happy to say I have been creative!!
!!!YAY!!!!

Have now rested two days after my crazy sewing...
and will go back and finish up!!!

  1. You certainly have been creative Stina. Your pincushion is beautiful.
    I've just pinned it to my Pinterest board.
    Thanks for the great tutorial.

  2. I love that pincushion and the pattern has been sitting out on my worktable for longer than I will confess to. Like you, this week I've been finishing up some projects that had sat around too long and it's such a good feeling to have them done! Merry Christmas!

  3. Hej STINA! Nu känns dagarna korta. Lite dagsljus och mkt att göra. Men stressa inte. Tvättade och handlade mat i går och i dag läst tidningen och väntar på att hämta Pia vid tåget 16.20. Hoppas att tåget passar tiden hm!?
    Du verkar ha kommit igång igen och det känns bra hoppas jag.
    Ha en riktigt bra julhelg önskar jag dig och familjen

  5. I shall have those sunglasses ready although I am quite sure that it will be lovely. I am just so thrilled that you chose to make me something and put such effort into it. I have a confession. I started to make your pincushion last year and it is still not assembled - it is ready and waiting so maybe I shall get the chance before the day arrives. You have been a busy girl and pleased to see those creative juices flowing well.

  10. This looks so very much like I expect you to make. Pink and red. So much lighter and brighter than what I do but still something I like so well.
