Im addicted!!! .....

Teatowel inspired by Scandinavian Stitches

This week has been a week of inspiration for me
Some of my 'to do list' is now being conquered.
Things I have been wanting to make and just havent been able to find the 'get up and go' to do it are now getting done. I have done crochet, stitching, sewing and I have gone through my numerous BOM pile and felt inspired to pick the Clown BOM and finish it...

A few months back I purchased the book
Scandinavian Stitches by Kajsa Wikman

The teatowel above was inspired by the picture on the front cover of this book.

I used a ribbon or chimney and just cut out the pieces freehand.
I just LOVED doing this. Im a real freedom girl when it comes to being creative. I just love to do my own thing. I just love the little house and the hanging angel on the front cover too.... they will be on my 'to do list' for Christmas.



This teatowel will either go into my 'present stash' that I want to build up or I will keep it for myself.

Have a great weekend

Wow you are on a roll! I love your new teatowel so much. Funny, one of our girls wanted to make that picture in the weekend but we didn't end up making it. I love it and that book so much. Nice and stylish but simple. Enjoy yourself!

I agree, they are almost too good to use, especially in my house where they seem to get used for mopping up everything. Lovely idea for pressies too.

Your teatowel is awesome Lisa, absolutely lovely! I got this book a week ago, very excited about making one of those wee houses. Such a beautiful book.

Gosh Lisa you have been busy since my last visit! I love the tea towel ideas, especially for gifts and the little purse made out of tea fabric is very cute, I also love the knitted pincushion. So many things to make and not enough time in the day!
