 Old table runners and my last pair of old jeans have got a new life as cases for round knitting needles, shopping bags, a small table runner and a shoulder bag.........

Table runner

This table runner was a real challenge! A friend gave me bits and pieces from her curtains (the white embroidered fabric) and asked if I could make a table runner for her. First, I made a few blocks with batic fabrics in grey and green, but it didn't work. Those blocks will end up as place mats I think. But then I remembered some silk fabrics I bought many years ago, and this is the result. Once again, the magazine My Quilt was my inspiration. 
Best of all, my friend loved the result!!

Folders for Travel Documents

Just in time for a holiday earlier in October, I finished one of these folders for organizing my travel documents. There are pockets for passport, tickets, cards, a pen and also a zipper pocket for coins or other bits and pieces. Very handy!
Today I finished another folder for a travelling friend....
I found the pattern in the Norwegian magazine "My Quilt".

Recycled Jeans = shopping bag, wine bags and pot holders

 Two pair of old jeans have got a new life as wine bags, a shopping bag and pot holders (and of course I ended up with more sraps....!) These ladies are favourites  - the signs say "Dinner is poured", "Drinks well with others" and " How can I have time to cook and clean when I've been shopping all day?"

Scrap Quilt #5 and 6

 Once again my drawers were filled with scraps (where do they come from??) So far, this is the result - and I'm working on another one...
I like making scrap quilts, the problem is the quilting. Big pieces (120 x 190cm and 160 x 120cm) and a small machine! The colors don't show up correctly for the red one, not enough day light I suppose, it's bright red in real life.
