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…❤️️

How about you…can you throw them away? I can NOT..not even the tiniest of scraps…so I’m saving them…for special projects…lol…
When I sewed on Annika’s Broken Star blocks there were a lot of corner cut offs. I sewed them together into half square triangles while sewing the block…that makes the work a little bit more fun…and it’s better to have them sewed together to a block rather than lying around somewhere…❤️
This time the scraps became the sweetest little pincushion… and it was the perfect gift to my lovely friend Louise…pink and black… colours she likes.
I actually made another one for me…in a different pattern…which reminds me to finish it! Wonder where I put that one?
Kind of cute isn’t it? ❤️
So don’t throw your scraps away!! ❤️️

I can not describe the feeling of happiness when finally being able to start a creative process…? a relief and big big sigh of “let go” can finally leave me.
With many months of disbelief in myself, a feeling of will this ever be good, a roller coaster with emotions and sickness… I can now say I am on to something ( cross my fingers and hope I’m not too quick here) at least something have happened. Feel more at ease, not loosing weight anymore…which means I can eat ( still on my strict diet), have filled up my levels of vitamins and minerals, getting support for my stressed adrenals..and lots more. Still have a hopeless thyroid… But can’t have everything…Sleep is better…instead of just a couple of hours ..it have now doubled! ☺️ hmmm..still have a lot to work on there..but crossing fingers… ☺️ lets hope I’m on my road to recovery and not sidetracked all the time!
Sewed I said!!
Yes yes yes…I’m making BLUEBERRIES!!!
This Summer/Autumn I found a closeby place with blueberries when walking Molly, picked for breakfast ( both Molly and me…she LOVES blueberries ? ) and we have enjoyed lots. Blueberries have always been my favourite, no allergies there..thank goodness…
So when I saw a picture of the Australian Homespun Magazine and a quilt made by Sarah Fielke… I just saw blueberries …no apples…but BLUEBERRIES… ☺️
Started sewing at once…and I’m in LOVE..they are the cutest ever!
Haven’t come that far…and for now I’m just sewing for fun!! Have no plan what so ever…do we need that? NOPE!!
And what was it that got me into all this sewing….it was my SCRAPS! One day I just picked one box of colours…happened to be a blue one… So from now on…do not EVER underestimate the POWER OF SCRAPS! They got me playing.
And more scrappy happenings happened… But more of this another time… Now I do need to try and find out if I can post my blogpost from the WordPress app… More fingers crossed!!
See you all lovelies!
