It is my day in this 60's/batiks bloghop. First I have to tell you that I wasn't even around in the 60's! I was born in the 80's!! But the 60's are an inspiration to me! In clothes, flare jeans, bold prints!
This mug rug I made last year for a swap, inspired by a VW van.
A year ago I made these pillows with batiks. I decided to make a few extra smaller pillows to go along. Let's hope for a few sunny days in Fall, so that we can use these pillows!!
When Mdm Samm announced a new embroidery blog hop, I knew I had to participate! I love embroidery! 
Baby embroidery

This is little shirt a gift for one of my friends who has had a baby recently. I added a personal touch. The pattern was found on Pinterest. On this stitchery board by Julie are so many cute patterns for all sort of occasions.

Last blog hop I talked about searching for a new couch and the need for new pillows. The first couch has arrived and this blog hop was a good reason to start on another pillow.

New couch and a new pillow!

When the embroidery patterns arrived, Nana's chair seemed perfect for this. Adding buttons, some fabrics and a knitting basket, instead of  the mannequin next to the chair. I'm quite pleased with it :)

Thank you Debbie for sharing this pattern with us and thanks to Jane and mdm Samm for hosting and being great cheerleaders this blog hop.

A new couch needs new pillows don't you think. I know that we're only LOOKING for a new couch and haven't bought one yet, but I better start sewing some pillows so that they are finished when the couch arrives ;-)
This urge to make pillows was a great reason to join this blog hop. I'm not finished yet, but this is what I came up with. 
Inspired by this beauty made by Rachel, I started to draw and cut letters, paper piece music notes and make some embroidery. What do you think?

Seven days of coin purses! This is day 6.  Have you seen all the beauties? Please check them out here! And if you want to make your own, the pattern is available here.
This is what I've made. A little coin purse with small pockets inside for bankcards. Next time I'm buying a bigger purseframe and make a slightly bigger purse. Unfortunately I don't have time to make it, because I started my Christmas sewing early!
