Welcome to new visitors to my blog, Mrs Moen, and to the rest of you, welcome back! Feel free to have a look around or to stop by later. I’m a Norwegian quilter who designs patterns and teach classes on the side, and this is where I record my creative work. You will find big orange buttons to my tutorial and pattern pages in the sidebar.
Avoiding all the things I should be doing preparing for Christmas, I have been playing with wintery Happy Houses. I was totally hooked on recycling table cloths this spring, and still have fun with them. My Happy white damask House is appliquéd onto a blue cloth with white snow crystals, very appropriate for the season I would say.
Instead of appliquéing the tree, I have played with stamping white fabric paint directly onto the cloth.
The quilt, “Happy Holiday House #4”, is embellished with white fluffy yarn and buttons. I thought I would dress everything more up, but well, the quilt had a mind of its own and was quite happy with less is more.
So, there you are, this little house could be yours. It’s not that Christmassy so it’s ok to get it after Christmas (unless you live next door and I’m pretty sure my neighbours don’t spend too much time online).
Having been totally hooked on knitting the last few weeks (told you I was avoiding Christmas preparations, didn’t I?), I’ll also give away a hand knitted hat.It’s made with machine washable salmon pink-ish 100 % wool yarn and in my favourite style this year. My whole family has them in various colours now, some of us even more than one, and this colour is my favourite. Getting pictures of a hat without a head (except mine of course) is not that easy, but Lightening McQueen has been very helpful indeed.
So, if you like decorating for the winter holidays and want to keep your head warm let me know; just leave a comment to this post and tell me so. If you want the quilt and live in Hawaii or another location where it’s always sunny and warm, just let me know and I’ll draw a second winner for the hat. And the other way around; if you love hats but hate cute little quilts, just say so in your comment.
I’ll choose a winner on December 17th, (no random this time; I’ll pick one myself) and I will ship internationally.
Good luck to you all!
Sorry; the giveaway is now closed!
