Vuf vuf friends! It’s late evening and we have been fixing our ‘winter window’. Went to find snow flakes … still have to store some other things … but I like to show you the mug rug we made and the little trees.
Teje bought this tea towel from Finland and later at home she realized how much she likes it. I said we could make a pillow to enjoy that nice print. So we did make a Christmas pillow. Our last post has tutorial for that easy tea towel pillow.
There was only small piece left but that could make nice Christmas mug rug.
We made this really simple and to keep it flat, we sew the pieces just over each other with sik sak. That way there is now fat seam allowance. We had decided to add few ribbons so they covered the seams.
I really like our sewing room. We have comfy rugs on the wooden floor and it’s very cosy small space.
When I’m really happy I start to sing! I sing often! But I’m shy and couldn’t sing to a big audience … I have heard that I should sing in You Tube … do you know if there are lots of listeners?
Some days we spend hours in the sewing room but other days we have many other things to do. Like yesterday when we had snow on the coffee table in the living room!
We made little snowy trees! They are fun and easy. Take some bases and cover them with fleece. Add glue as you go.
If you like, you can trim the fleece ‘hairs’ shorter but I like the fluffy look!
I shall show you again these trees when our ‘winter window’ is ready. It’s almost, but I still have to paint something.
We did some hand quilting on the mug rug. Then the binding with red, little gingham, what else!
And so we can have a lovely coffee moment with favourite Finnish coffee … just a sneaky peaky from the ‘Winter in Woods’!
With Nero we got today new toys! They are from ‘Jumbo’ which is a local, big shop filled with anything you can imagine. Now there is of course lots of Christmas things. Teje told me that there was one puppy who really wanted to go for shopping and many times they carried her out! Too bad she couldn’t come to play with us.
Now I want to thank you dear friends, for reading my story! Hope to see you soon! I shall give a knitting lesson to a Moose! It’s hirvi in Finnish if you like to know; I do speak Finnish and Greek and my own secret language.
