SMS Give Away

I was not only taking part and giving away one of the triple zipper pouches I made I also won the gorgeous sun from Sheila. It was as the sun knew that there was this wall hanging arriving in my house and for the first day in weeks it was sunny and - you will not believe it - warm!

Isn't this gorgeous! I will hang it up tomorrow next to my sewing place (which is the kitchen table) so the sun will always shine for me when I am sewing. She also sent me a pincushion and a keyforb. This one is so lovely! I always wanted to have one. Thank you so much!

I also managed to make an other project out of the book "Patchwork Please!". I just copied the pattern this morning and was haven a look at my little stash. The advantage of being in a swap is to be the first to have some fabrics. Last week the fabrics for the "Text Fabric Swap" arrived and they are already cut and ready to go. I used one tiny piece from the left over to make this coaster

I am always surprised that these little tiny pieces work out really nice. I stitched a little with pink perle cotton.

I hope she will like it. It will be on the way soon as I was to late to post it today!


  1. The "Keep calm" print is perfect for your cute hexagon trivet!

  2. Lovely win from Sheila, and I love that wee coaster too.

  3. Love the hexie trivet, looking forward to the sew a long. Glad your package arrived safely.
