A little bit of sewing

The sewing draught is still very much here... I haven't felt inspired to pick up a needle lately, and I guess you have noticed from the lack of blogging. The only thing I have done over the last weeks are these place mats:



I went to a friend's wedding this weekend, and I needed a pressie :o) I tried to go for a bit of a very light and neutral look. Rolled up and tied off with a bow :o)



I'm quite pleased with them, and I hope they will be enjoyed!

Enjoy your stitching!
Hugs and stitches from

Nydelege brikker. Eg har merka meg posten der du viser korleis du syr Dresden Plate med maskin. Dette vil eg prøve meg på ein gong. Takk for at du deler dette.
