I wasn't lazy - a craft update

Since I returned from Bad Homburg I wasn't lazy when it comes to crafty things. While I waited for the results from doctors and made apointments I always had something to SEW.
My SIL got the samsung galaxy S II like me so she was in need for a cute little case to protect her new toy.
She didn't ask for anything special. She just told me that she likes soft colors like purple and pink.
I came up with a bag using some super tiny scraps from my always growing scrap bag.

My samsung galaxy S II was in need for a new case as well. I used an old which I made for the shop but never sold.
My love for hexies is still growing and I always carry a little hexie project with me where ever I go.
This time I tryed super tiny hexies. I have no idea how small they are (because I'm typing this from the hospital and I don't have anything to measure it) but believe me they are really tiny.
For the background I grabed a piece of fabric which I bought in my early sewing days around 2006.
I was always looking for the most perfect project to show it and here it is.

I hand quilted the back and the front with embroidery thread. 
I added a tiny loop for some cell phone charms since the new mobile phones have nothing to hang my fave charms.

My kitchen is another place which is getting a massive make over.
Our kitchen is a very old and ugly one. We bought it second hand and it's nearly falling apart now.
We have no money to get a new one so I used my sewing skills to pimp my ugly kitchen up.
I started with some new pot holders and an oven mitt.
For the oven mitt I recycled the batting from my old and completly worn out oven mitt.

Since our kitchen is plain looking I wanted some bright and cheerful. I used some of my kitchen themed fabrics and added random fabrics from my scrap bag .

These are just a few projects which I made in the past 6 or 7 weeks. Stay tunned for some crafty news .
