seed catalogue

The first seed catalogue of the season arrived
this week and I must admit that I'm enjoying looking through it.

I've done a bit of sewing that isn't Christmas related.
Here's a new table mat .... not that I needed another one  ^^

And 'matching' magic coasters - these really are magic!  They're made from one piece of fabric (each) and go together amazingly quickly ... here's the link

And whilst on the subject of coffee - how about a
 coffee liqueur?
Into a clean jar (with a lid) pour 4 cups of vodka, add 44 sugar cubes and 44 coffee beans.
Let it sit in a dark location for a few weeks, give it a shake now and then and it's ready to serve ... don't forget to strain off the beans.  ^^

And a new cushion cover ....
you just 'gotta' love that sunbeam! 

And last but not least I'd like to say welcome to my newest followers.   I appreciate everyone that comes by for a visit.  Unfortunately,  there are more and more blogs that I cannot leave a comment on but rest assured that I'm visiting.

I like your table mat! It's a very good way to use fabric pieces!
Thanks for link! :o)

I really love the sentiment on that pretty pillow, Kate-and the colors you chose to finish it with are so nice! I think it's great that you have so many table mats--you'll never get bored and this one looks perfect with your new mug mats :)

Hope you enjoy the rest of your week--can hardly believe we are beginning the last third of November tomorrow!

I have that comment problem, too, as more and more people switch to embedded boxes or google plus. Even using my google account, I can't leave messages on either one. I'll survive, and so will they, I imagine. ;) I LOVE your pillow! That is the best sentiment and I like the way you framed it with the fabric. And really, there's no such thing as too many table mats, is there? That's a very nice one! Seed catalogs are the last thing I'm thinking of right now, as it dips below freezing Sunday night. But it is nice to think of them anyway.
