Getting some things done


Hi there!

I’ve finished two projects from the book “I love patchwork” that I showed you on my last post. Getting a little bit of sewing done this week was a real treat for me! :-)))

First a small pouch, 7” x 6” (18cm x 15 cm) .

Front and back:

This is how it looks in the book:


Then I made a travel sewing kit using the same fabrics. I used a piece of felt instead of fabric for the needles.

It measures 9 1/2” x 7 1/2” (24 cm x 9cm):

Here is the original:


Once in the sewing mood…

For a friend who loves to crochet I made a Crochet Hook Cozy for her birthday:



 The pattern is from Jenny Ryan.

The other birthday gift is for a very nice blogfriend so I can’t show you today what I’ve made for her! But I took a picture of it!

It is dark and cold outside, I’m going to make a cup of tea.

Wishing you a lovely, warm and creative weekend!

Until next time!

What lovely things you have been making Suzie- gorgeous! I bet your friend was so happy with the crochet organiser.

Happy sewings. Hope your back improves -it is suprising what muscles you are moving when sewing. I hope it will help.
