working on small ufos

I have a box with small projects I started and didn't finish for various reasons. Last week I opened the box and work on two of these projects and finished them.

The first project was the sockroll. I wanted to make one for Angelika's birthday. So I decided to make two, one for practise for me and a perfect one for Angelika. The reason is that I planned to piece a pair a potholders for Angelika some time ago and the pattern was a bit confusing. I also contacted the designer, but she only told me that everything is pretty easy and clear.

So I started the first roll and everything was fine till I had to make the pockets for the knitting notions. Instead of only quilting the batting and the fabric for the pockets I also quilted the outside fabric. After that mistake I made Angelika's roll and put mine into the box.
I only had to piece the binding on to have it finished.

The other things were these hearts with the little bags on it. A friend of mine used them as name tags at x-mas presents or as name tags for a dinner party. The fabrics were already cut but the filling was in the attic.

Hallo Katja.
Was für eine super Idee. Ich mag die Sockroll-tasche sehr.
Ein schönes Wochende und viele Grüsse aus DK, Anne-Mette

Hallo Katja,

die Sockenrolle ist klasse! Kann man das Muster irgendwo kaufen? Oder falls es Deine Erfingung ist: Dürfte ich es haben?
Sie wäre das ideale Geschenk für meinen Sockapalooza Pal. Ich hatte schon überlegt, ob ich ihr nicht irgend eine Kleinigkeit quilten kann und ehrlich gesagt, wäre sie auch ein super Eigengeschenk für mich selbst.
Grüße aus Boston,
