Finally FINALLY…I finished my pattern of the “Happy Pincushion Organiser” … now I can take big big sigh of relief…have had it on my todo list for ages…but somehow I have managed to prolong this to the longest….ever!

And this needs to be celebrated..doesn’t it!!! Do I hear a YES…I hope so…😜

I will be giving a way one 8 pages PDF pattern with step by step instructions and lots of pictures here on my blog …and on Instagram I will be giving away two more patterns.

And as always..I LOVE hearing from you…you are the reason why I love to blog …so this time I’m very curious to know…

SCRAP LOVER or NOT… 😜😍

Easy Peasy… let me know in the comments and I will add you to the draw! And if you want to sign up for my newsletter…that is up to you….I wouldn’t dream of forcing you to sign up just for a giveaway…💗

Giveaway will be open until Sunday the 5 th Of August…somewhere until I go to bed! 😉

My Happy Pincushion Organiser is a most fun little Pincushion to make…I have made nine already..and I’m sure I will make lots more.

It started with these 4 ones… one for us all in our sewing group “Kreativa Tanter” …roughly translated to Creative Ladies… can’t find a word for our Swedish word “Tant”…an “older” lady, love having a cup of tea or coffee and fika and chatting with friends and at the same time doing something crafty! Anyone know if there is a word for that?

The pincushions made…one for Tant Gul 💛 (Yellow=Lilian),Tant Blå 💙 (Blue=Carola), Tant Rosa 💗 (Pink=Åsa) and Tant Grön 💚 (Green=Me)… how fun it was to give these away… ❤️

Then I made one for my lovely therapist Kicki…she was the sunshine on my winter days…so she needed one too🧡

Orange one for her… see how very scrap friendly this Pincushion is!

This spring I made two more…needed a lot of testing to do and also photos to take…

This one have now gotten a home with Louise…💗

And this one lives at the home of Shirley in England…💗

Here I took a pause in my pattern writing for some reason…phew…so I needed to dust my memory off so I made one more and almost finished the pattern..

Made with scraps that was on my cutting table from my lastest sewing…the secret one!

Here I changed a bit to the pattern…added that…and I also got a new idea…so I had to make another…😜 my latest one…and this one is now officially my favourite!

I added a holder for my sewing thread! Yay…now I can have it even more organised!I found the perfect button…this one have come all the way from Australia as a gift…and now it came to perfect use!

It’s the perfect size to sit on my sewing machine too… 💖

Hope you will love making one for you and lots for your friends…

Pattern can be bought at my Craftsy storeI appreciate every little buy …means more than you know!

And good luck in the draw! 💖💗💖

I did sew in June..promise I did! 😜

First I finished my secret project…can show soon!

And then I sewed on my Happy Pincushion Organiser pattern that soon is for sale! Yay!!

Test sewed a few ones …and the more I sew..the more I want to make…I can’t stop!

I have worked on this pattern for ages ..and are tweaking and tweaking adding this and that…but think I call it done soon!

Made new logos to use at the front of the pattern and I’m happy with them… boy this takes time! I’m no pro so it’s a lot of thinking on HOW to do before it’s actually is done..trial and error as well!

Two pincushions were sent to friends…one to Louise and one to Shirley…pink ones both of them. Happy to have pink loving friends 💗💖💗😜

I also made an attempt of making a bag for Shirley…a Weebraw bag…a pattern by Laura Cunningham…

Me and bags! Well now it also shall be said..I was sick and wasn’t my brightest and sharpest myself…😜 so I made EVERY mistake that could be done…I think!

But a bag it became! Phew!

Not the same size, not how I imagined, not the width it was supposed to be…but hey…it’s a bag and I used up some pretty pretty fabrics…😜

Pretty inside…💗

Think it’s cute!

Someone on Instagram said it was kissing lips …and I have to agree !

I will definitely make some more of this bag…I just need to recover from the making of it! No..I’m just kidding…it was an easy bag to make…it was just me…😜sometimes you just shall walk away from the sewing and not be so stubborn…hmm…think I just said something about my father being stubborn…😉

Now I’m almost caught up… yay to me! So see you soon lovelies 💗

Can’t help it…love swapping blocks with my friends… this time a basket swap with Louise. Sent my starter blocks to Louise earlier this year and just briefly mentioned this in a catching up post a while ago…not quite ok ..right :) thought so…it deserves a blog post of its own!

Here is my two blocks sent to Louise… with a note for her to use the colours I like :) sort of the ones used in the blocks… :) no other rules. 

Will redo the handles on my blocks…do them properly and applique them by hand… hadn’t expected that clever Louise would add her touch to the blocks she sent …this is what she sent me … :)

How brilliant wasn’t her idea…little appliquéd flowers in one of the baskets…wow…gorgeous idea…fell in love with it instantly ! So of course the handles needs to be hand sewn instead of machine appliqued… 😉

Isn’t they just marvellous…my four blocks to the left ( top two made for me by Louise) and Louises starter blocks to the right (top and bottom)…those she sent for me so I would know what to sew for her. This will be such an “easy” quilt to sew… hardly knows which ones are mine or hers… 😉 ( in fact when sewing yesterday I had to go back and see what Louise had posted on her Instagram feed to see which ones she owned…lol )

Yesterday’s sewing was so much fun..I really love to applique…but with everything that have been happening…I just put it aside…and well…yesterday’s sewing was like finding one more puzzle piece to add to my life puzzle. So happy :)

Appliquéd one little flower …. no plan whatever…found a little flower I liked and added the purple piece as background and a little stem…a bit quirky and that’s how I like it…

And I also made one without a flower..but added a bit of interest to the basket instead… liked that..so Louise…go ahead..do your magic on my next blocks… :)

And here are Louise’s blocks so far together … I really LOVE them… can’t wait to see how our quilts will turn out..it’s so exciting and can’t wait to see how next blocks will look like… Had a bit of trouble sending them off… they wanted to stay here 😉

Fun fun fun… :) 

And Louise is this months Queen Bee so I sent her blocks along with the baskets…

A classic and traditional Crown and Thorne block… will look amazing in just blue and white! 

Now to something new… pattern testing… :)
