Saturday Sewing with Olaf

I'm currently sitting back with some yummy snacks and a glass of wine 
feeling very content as I've just finished a little gift for Miss Lily.

Meet Olaf

"Hi I'm Olaf and I like warm hugs"


Earlier today he was just this


But believe me, he wouldn't have got this far without the help of a wonderful friend Fiona who blogs over HERE.  See, I started Olaf in the last week but ran into trouble. It just wasn't happening and I called defeat when Fiona came to my rescue and offered to help me with my block.  Then I got to pick up Olaf on Friday. Forever in debt to Fiona.  Huge thank you again Fiona xx


So earlier today, the fabric pull happened, a glass of wine was poured and ta-da.
One finished Olaf cushion surrounded in some Bonnie and Camille :o)

Now being dearly loved by one Miss 5.


Possibly my last finish for the year and almost the cutest :o)

Now, all together "let it go, let it go, can't hold it back anymore ...."


hugs Sharon

  4. Beautifully done, congratulations to you both! A pillow is a very good use for a paper pieced block like this. Good thing to remember! Happy Christmas!

  11. I love your pillow! How big did you make the Olaf block? I found the pattern but it is really small! I love your border too. Great gift. K-

  13. I love your Olaf! I am going to have to make sure my youngest three don't catch a glimpse of him, as I know they'll be suggesting that I make one for Christmas. Fat chance!!

  15. This is fabulous!!!! I really adore the colour combination. No wonder Miss L loves it. I don't really believe YOU got in to trouble............I haven't tried foundation piecing yet as it terrifies me. I'm doing a quilt with 100+ blocks and have stopped at block 4 which is foundation piecing..........arrghhh. Maybe you could do a post of your tips?
