January sewing is finished

Today I have made three tread catcheres in three different sizes.
They were fun and fast to make. I am looking forward to the rest of the projects and very glad I joined.


It's very cold in Norway now so I chose winter fabrics for two of the catchers and a blooming summer fabric for the smallest.


I love baskets and I bought a new one for the SAL project. To the right you can see the linen for the next project.

Regards to all of you from Annik
