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!!!

A colour fix...

 Kitchen sofa desperately needed a new cover...
...
Went to my trustful fabric shop...
My own fabric closet
and found an old but oh so wonderful curtain
With wide stripes in red, orange and pinks...
PERFECT!!!

Sorry haven't a before photo...
Forgot...:0)

When the cover was finished...I realised that the pillows
Didn't match at all...
So what to do..
A raid through my beloved fabric closet...
where I found some great fabrics...
Remembered a fabric I had at my old work...
So a little trip took me there..
And I got a wonderful and just perfect fabric..
I'm so in love with it...


Retro...
Red background..
Orange and pink flowers
With a little touch of purple and white...

...L O V E L Y...


...S M I L I N G ...


...Ric rac and Pom Pom added...


And I have a cheerful and happy little corner
and it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas !!!

So so pleased with this...
Joy and happiness!!!


...And Molly have approved and tested...

Now it's just ...
I need some new quilts!!!!

With 
...O R A N G E...
