Getting Crafty

Hello and welcome new followers ...

Where has this year gone?  Am I the only one who feels this year has flown past in a haze?
It's nearly that time of year again...and now that Halloween is over...

It's time to start thinking about gifts....

Christmas Gifts!

Homemade and handmade gifts are just so special.  Whether it's a jar of homemade jam filled with homegrown raspberries lovingly picked from a friend's garden, or a hand sewn tea cosy, the thought and effort behind the gift always warms my heart.

  I recently came across this fabric in a well known Swedish store I thought these would make ideal cushion covers for a special someone who hinted she needed to add some colour into her lounge which is predominantly neutral tones with very little colour.  She loves walking in the countryside and I thought this fabric perfect for her.

I've sewn the back envelope style, so you can just tuck the cushion in.

Another two in a different fabric

Pressed and ready for sending overseas to warmer climes!

I love it when a plan comes together!

Is it too early to be thinking of Christmas and 
are you making any gifts this year?
Shall we share ideas?

Have a lovely week!


  1. Your pillows are gorgeous and I love the fabrics! It's impossible to find great fabrics here in Canada and they're over $20 a meter. But, I am headed to the USA later this week, I am going to look for fabrics that will work in my living room.
    I have already made one gift, the quilt for my daughter and I've purchased one gift for another daughter. That's it. You are way ahead of the game girl.
    Hugs, cindy

  2. Loving the fabric! And also the Mallow flowers, or "Malva" in Swedish, my daughters name :)
