Some of the Christmas Gifts GRUPEN WALLPAPER

I'm really happy that some of my Christmas gifts that I've sent have been received, opened and loved! I made a few of these patchwork totes. There is nothing like square patches that I truly love. And I still adore Ginseng collection by Joel Dewberry as much as I did when it just came out. I seem to have my glitter penguin's approval too! On the other side of the tote, I appliqued my friend's (recipient's) name. Vy - Isn't it such a pretty name? These are some felt cakes I made for Joe's niece Sarah. It took me a while to make a pattern that I felt comfortable with, but it was worth it. I ended up wanting to make some for myself too! Some Christmasy placemats.

Fei has a boy who is about the same age as this boy in the center of the potholder, so I couldn't think of better fabric choice to make something for her. In case you are wondering about the fabric, it is from a Berlin Kollektion Anne and Hanse by Yuwa . Ever since I learned about this fabric coming out in Quilt Japan magazine, I had been waiting to get some myself very impatiently. I snatched it on the day it became available! I love the collection. And this straw


I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving (if you are in the US) and a nice and relaxing weekend afterwards. I didn't do anything special for Thanksgiving but I had a quite bit of fun with Black Friday deals at some local and online shops. I love bargains. I can't resist anything like 20% off everything PLUS free shipping kinda thing. I bought lots of necessities at Joann like batting, threads, and interfacing, and snatched lots of ecospun felt from . Speaking of felt, I have been really crazy about making things with felt these days. Making felt food was one of the million things I've wanted to try out for a while. After sewing the popsicle block , I was feeling like making more yummy stuff, and I found myself spending hours browsing felt food online. Oh my goodness felt has such possibilities ! The food in the picture is some typical stuff for Japanese bento box: rice balls with seaweed around them, fried shrimp, meat loaf, and lettuce. I made all these using th
