… 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:
‘Rainbow Hare Quilts’. Janine has made a beautiful quilt ‘I saw A Fish’!
Beautiful Christmas ornaments made with felt by ‘PurlBee’!
‘Sew French’ has always something inspiring to see! Now it’s a Christmas tree skirt!
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!
TEJE, NERO, HANNA & NELLI

Hello and good new week to everyone! I know that you are busy like I am because even we can’t believe it, Christmas is getting closer and closer! I have squeezed a moment from here and there and made a new pouch!
I liked to make something with Christmas colours but something that is for all the year. The beige fabric is mix linen, then there are polka dots from ‘Fluffy Sheep Quilting’ and inside there are strawberries!
I have made more crochet butterflies and I like to use them on pouches.
I quilted the front and back pieces with fleece and fusible web, to be steady and thick. Backside is one colour mix linen and the size is 7,5″ x 7″.
Today it’s less words and more works but still I have to tell you about the weather … we had very strong and long lasting thunder during the weekend. It was raining so much and I felt it never stops. Finally yesterday it stopped and the rainbow appeared … full rainbow … two gold treasures I hope!
Now our garden is so full full of green! I think very soon we shall have fresh spinach and onions!
This Butterfly pouch is in my etsy shop and there are few more with other colours coming on. So I’ll better go to continue snow pinwheel decorations. Nero said to me also that he wants to be brushed so I go to brush my puppies.
Thank you for stopping by and for your sweet messages! I wish you a wonderful week without rain and thunder!
