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 #7

I have finished another scrap quilt (size 120 x 190cm). For the coming weeks, I think I'll make some smaller projects.....!

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.

Inspiration from "Stitch" # 2


Another project from the magazine "Stitch" is finished. For the flowers and leaves I painted vilene with silk painting before I cut them out. The butterfly is a photo print - the wings are - the body is embroidery thread.
By changing the browser, the problem with uploading photos to the blog was solved. Very strange I think........

Problems, Problems, Problems

For the last weeks Mr. Blogger won't let me upload photos to this blog. He asks if I want to open or save "resumable" from blogger.com. I've tried both without any luck. If someone out there have an idea what I can do to solve the problem, I would be very happy if you send me a message!!
