… Barbecue, Butterfly, Beautiful, Pinwheel … I started to look words to find a name for this post but they were too many! Today all my items starts with B or P! But first I want to wish you the most beautiful December! And now let’s go – with my new boots …
I love this photo! for my surprise this very close up photo came out so well and sharp as you see. I have saved these boots for a while … then I made a block but the idea stopped there …. till yesterday …
Sweet little book with boots – needle book!
And there are the tickets, too! This fabric is Punctuation by ‘American Jane Patterns’ Sandy Klop for modafabrics.com and it’s sooooo goood! This lovely fabric has 4 different green prints in same & blue and orange tickets and boots on the selvage!
Because I finally managed to make this needle book, it was easy to continue with some other special fabrics. What about Moomins? Do you love them?
Here you are ‘Moomin’ pink and sweet needle book. It insisted to become so cute and girlish – I hope I’m not the only one who loves girlish things!
Pink ‘Moomin’ needle book is in MY ETSY SHOP and I have just finished second Moomin needle book with green fabrics. Our friend Mia from ‘Handmade by Mia’ asked what we wish to get from Santa. I said boots and ment real, great boots! So I guess my little boots are on their way to my shop, too.
Butterfly! These crochet butterflies has really got so much attention! I made the red polka-dot zipper pouch and this green was on it’s way. Now finished and in my shop. A while ago I received wonderful e-mail from a sweet lady who asked if I could make some butterflies to her – I was so happy that she didn’t hesitate to ask when she got a lovely idea to use these butterflies on a craft she was making! I haven’t forgot that many of you would like to get pattern for this butterfly. I hope I have time to do it in winter. The pattern is not mine so it’s a little bit difficult issue. I have tried to contact the blogger where I found it, but I think she has stopped her blog.
If you remember I made one fabric basket with written fabric with lovely red checked fabric. Now I have made the smaller one and it’s also in my shop.
And more and more Bees … they are brooch …
I ordered brooch pins from etsy and they came very quickly. So now I have been able to finish some brooch with these pinwheel stars. Also in my shop now …
Did I say any other word with B? Yes, B.B.Q … here your go, fishes from grill two days ago and yesterday we had B.B.Q. with pork chops and ate outside wearing t-shirts! First of December, isn’t that great! Today has still been very warm but too strong wind to sit outside. And you know what they say for the next weekend? Only +7 for us and for more north under zero!
As you can guess, I have seen again lots of fantastic ideas and sewings! Here are few links to give you inspiration:
My garden doesn’t has lots of flowers but now there are beautiful rosies! But for an other B as Beautiful I wanted to show you my beautiful Nero. You see where he enjoys himself?!
Laura’s blog hop with English paper piecing has reached the end and the linky party. ‘Travellin Pic Stitch’ was my first ever blog hop and also I tried first time English paper piecing. Both so much fun – mostly the blog hop! I hope Laura has soon again new great idea as this was and invites me, too!When I crapped the plate with feta and centered it on my block, I didn’t realize that it could be fun; I saw only the colours. I had a good laugh with Laura’s funny words for my feta cheese block!
Time to go … I wonder what you are doing in the beginning of the December? I have made some cards to write and some sewing ideas are waiting in my thoughts, fabrics on my table … and some special fabrics are on their way to me! Can’t wait to show them! Thank you for visiting and for your sweet comments! I hope I inspired many of you to knit and to start to knit! Hugs to all of you from all of us here!
Oh I just love your needle books so very much, especially the Moomin fabric! I just stick mine into a piece of paper that I have folded into my sewing basket. Now I am going to make a few of these, they are so beautiful and would make great stocking stuffers for my sewing friends! Thank you!
Beautiful work as ever Teje. Love the Moomin fabric. Reminds me of the sleep suits my friends from Finland bought Big J when he was a baby – one was from Marrimekko and the other was Moomins. Happy Memories 😀
Who wouldn’t love Moomins, and if it’s pink = just perfection! I loved you post, it shows all beautiful things you’ve created and also the lovely views around you, oh those roses… Even it’s not that rosy around here these days 😉 I am going to try to blog every day this December again (third year in a row!!), so quite a lot of snow/Finnish joulu-things to come – you’re so welcome to take a look and get a little glimpse of kotoisat Suomi-tunnelmat 🙂
I wish you the most wonderful start for your December!
Thank you Mia for your sweetest words! I can’t say that I don’t like this warm weather but where is the Christmas feeling – that needs snow and cold weather and even dark days to enjoy candles and lights! I shall visit you every day – I just wish we could have a glass of glogi together! x Teje
I love your boots needle book! I’ve been sorting through my selvedges, not sure what I’ll do with them, but this is a great idea, to use it as you would a ribbon! I wouldn’t have to use them all up on one project, this way!
Thanks for the shout out, too!!
Wow, lots going on these days! Love the needle books which would make great gifts for sewing friends. Great idea to put cookie cutters in a fun handmade fabric basket. I could do that with my stuff baskets. Always fun to see all the animals enjoying their lazy days.
Thank you Terri! They do make great gifts for sewers and for everyone. Even knitters need needles and everyone to sew a button now and then. Fortunately we have still one more sunny day for dogs to enjoy outside. x Teje
Thank you so much Jane! I think I have to give up … it’s already too close. I try to finish writing my cards and here I am leaving comments to fabric give aways – this is a special week for those! Have a lovely week! x Teje
Gosh! You have been busy sewing again 🙂 All your projects are beautiful!! I especially like the fabric baskets and the crocheted butterflies. I hope the sun keeps shining for you by the sea Teje 🙂 Avis x
