Nero’s Christmas Calendar – day 3 and pillow with trees


Vof Vof! Hello everyone! What shall we find today? …  here comes the day 3 …

log cabin pin cushion

Something sweet for this stormy day! Wow, the wind almost took me with it! I wanted so much to take photos from the sea which was amazing today! Huge waves but so much wind and rain that I couldn’t take my camera out.

And then it’s time for Moomins but I didn’t open yet today’s ‘door’ …. just a moment …

day 3

She’s knitting! I haven’t knit but made some trees! I think these are my favourites …

patchwork trees

… or they might be these …

Christmas trees

I made all the forest having in my mind Christmas pillow. I’m not sure if I like the trunks, they give quite busy look for the whole thing. Perhaps the quilting will change it a little bit. Should I make pillow or a Christmas wall quilt?

‘Ms Midge’ has a ‘Cushion For Christmas Blog Hop’! I have add the button also to my sidelist. At the end we can link our cushions and of course there are presents!

Pam from ‘Threading My Way’ has collected easy to sew gift ideas with tutorials!

I’m linking at my favourite Tuesday linky parties! Find all the buttons on my sidelist!

Christmas trees

I think I found the answer! If I make pillow I can join the fun at ‘Ms Midge’ (look the link above or the button on my sidelist).

Thank you for stopping by and for your sweet comments! Have a lovely time with your holiday sewings!

  1. Your trees are so cute Teje!

  2. Oh your Christmas trees are beautiful and the trunks are just perfect. The ornament is so cute, that cupcake makes me hungry. LOL! Love the fabrics you used for both.

  3. Is that Little My on your Moomin calendar today? She always looks so cross.

  4. Really love those trees! And it’s snowing on your blog!! How clever! Jxo

  5. Happy 3rd December Teje, I love your Moomin calendar ;0) x

  6. Hey Nero, Another cool offering for day 3. You guys are just amazing. Love those trees and those Finish guys are a real treat–so cute and amusing. Mom is still sitting in a heap with only the wreath up. She did go out and do a little something outside in the front garden–emphasis on the little. Hugs from Lady Caroline

  7. I just love reading your blog – it always brings a smile to my face. I love the tree quilt 🙂

  8. Love those trees!!!! The tree trunks look like they have snow on them!!! So cool! Yay day #3!!!! Hugs……

    • Thanks Doreen! You helpped me a lot! Now I like them thinking they have snow – how I didn’t see that?! Hugs! x Teje

      • Maybe it’s because we have a snowstorm coming at us and our son is a long-haul trucker headed for California at the moment and he just sent a photo of the roads. He’s already in a snowstorm (wherever he is!! between MN and CA). I’m glad you can “see” the snow, too!! Hehe!

  9. Your trees are pretty nice!

  10. I love the little trees!

  11. Your trees look beautiful and would be perfect for a pillow!

  12. I absolutely adore polka dots, so you won’t be surprised that I love this. Great idea with the advent calendar, enjoying the post. Wanted to do something similar but am not quite organized enough. Great work! Keep it up!

I would love to hear from you! If you have a moment, please leave a message!
