I did not have time to blog in the last weeks, but I was not resting, believe me :-) I made 12 litres of elder syrup for those long winter evenings, and also some small hand sewing, and all the last minute things of doctors' check ups and gardening and visiting and having friends before school closes in 4 weeks time and we start our summer vacation of 11-12 weeks.
Apart from working on my dolls house cross stitch (I do it very rarely nowadays, I have to admit...), I am making small projects. This weekend my husband took our kids to his mum's with him, so I had lots of time to do what I wanted, like reading in bed for hours, sewing, and watching Gilmore Girls, undisturbed - oh, what a feeling! They are shortly heading home, so now I am making freshly baked bread to greet them.
The pincushions will be for sale at the annual fair at Lake Balaton, and I am also planning to make other small things, if I'll have time...
The litle needle holder is made of the kit I won from Christine. I LOVE it, it is just so sweet and jolly. It was pure joy to make it. And have a look at the little button I found in my drawer - don't you love it?
The muffin quilt is for a friend who's turning 40 soon.
And I have finally decided what to make of my precious jelly roll and charm pack, and I am piecing the blocks, 8 or 10 more to go.
