I belong to a small but really cute group of creative ladies… we are only four…and this Christmas I decided that I wanted to give them a little gift … so I made us all mug mats to use when we enjoy our “fika time”…?
Since I was sewing with only scraps at that time, I continued my mission to sew some of them up… found already cut 1” squares in my boxes and used up almost all of them…only needed to cut out some more from the yellow and green scrap bins. Looks like I have sewed less with those colours.
A tiny tiny heart made…
I first made the blue one …for The Lady Blue…?
and then a pink one for The Lady Pink… ?
and of course a yellow for The Lady Yellow…?
And at last for The Lady Green..she needed one too ? ( and surprisingly this one is mine…not the pink one ☺️)
Scrappy backsides… ????
And scrappy on the front… how I love scraps!!
It was very fun sewing these… think I need to make some more to have at home…❤️️

I’m so happy … I have a finish… a quilt… not big … but it’s a quilt! ❤️
Started this one intended to be a Christmas gift.. but had to focus on making new plans for Christmas…so it had to be put away… and now it’s a happy 2017 gift instead! ❤️️
I have always had a love for Cheri Saffiote Payne patterns…they are very fun to make and with a sense of humour … and best of all … not at all perfect! You can find her patterns here.
Made a revisit to my “old” Stina fabrics and made this version of “Embrace Each Day”.
Embrace Each day… it’s something we all need to do every day!
I webbed my pieces and machine appliquéd with a buttonhole stitch…
I used two strands of mouline yarn for the stitchery… ❤️️
Pardon the thread on the flower…? It felt a little bit strange sewing with this colour palette since it’s something I haven’t sewn with for a long time, but once deciding on my focus prints it all felt natural again… ☺️… and with the knowledge that the one I’m gifting it for would love it..it was a lot of fun… ❤️️…and I quite like it…☺️
Love the rectangle start instead of a square…
When deciding on the quilting I wanted to try something new out…just because… ? I wasn’t sure on how it would turn out but I like it..and will make some more with the same quilting…
I started at the bottom and worked my way around the quilt … I actually was surprised I didn’t got stuck in a corner or something …which I very likely could have ..?
Do like the texture… a bit of traditional quilting and still not…and done by machine… ❤️

Today it’s the last day of 2016…will end that with the knowledge I can do a lot. Have stitched my bumps…and will continue on this Road to Recovery…more bumps will come ahead…but for now the uphill struggle is more of a challenge than a Mount Everest…and for that I’m grateful…❤️️
For me…I’m going to start fresh and let it be time to dream big…❤️️ …and a word that will follow me will be confidence!
It’s time to believe in myself and my powers…☺️ bring on the new year…2017…❤️️
HAPPY NEW YEAR …AND A LOVELY NEW SEWINGYEAR TO ALL OF YOU! ❤️️❤️️❤️️
