Starbucks Coffee

I know some people are really fan of Starbucks. I do not think I enter this category even if I love their Tchai tea Latte. But I am completely fan of the aesthetic of the hot drink cup with sleeve. I know it is a waste of plastic and paper, but I love the shape and colors. So I have made a paper pieced block of it, it is available here and there.

It is an easy and quick block to piece, perfect for beginner, and the letters and stars are simple embroidery (satin stitch). It makes the perfect mug rug for the office or the house, or a lovely kitchen mini quilt. It is far from my usual tales and woodland design, but sometime I love doing something different... and I need it. Hope you will enjoy.

Hedgehog block BOM 2013

September is already here... Wow! Time is going sooooo fast!  Anyway, my cute little hedgehog is ready to prepare his winter nest. His name is Harvey and he is an happy little one. I have had a lot of pleasure to sew him and I can't wait to sew his friends for my BOM quilt!
If you want an Harvey at home, he is available in my Craftsy and Etsy shop. And do not worry, he has no true pikes and he is as soft as can be!
