Monday mornings with construction in the house is always madness. The weekends are always so peaceful and then the noise and activity starts for another week. Another couple of weeks (I think) and I should be able to spend my time cleaning every nook and crevice.
While I continue to dig up the “oldies” in my sewing haven, I did have fun with a new project this week. I had a charm pack of Market Road by Windham and loved the colors. I decided to make a few flying geese and then just started building on them until I got a nice size for the table. It is 16”x40”.
I used the rest of the charms for the back.
Now for the oldies……another table runner that I finally quilted and bound.
Remember the fusible grid Happy Jack from my last post? I finished him AND make another one just like him as a gift. I really like the way these turned out.
The little ones have all headed back to school for the upcoming year, but we had fun celebrating the end of summer. Little says summer like watermelon.
Why is it that little girls love to dress up?????
When Benartex had their Christmas in July Blog Hop I was the lucky winner of one of their bundles from My Fabric Relish. Included in the bundle were two great patterns from Cherry Blossoms Quilting. I have made several of Cherry’s patterns and they have become some of my favorite projects to display at Christmas. I’m thinking that this darling Christmas tree skirt might need to be the next addition. Be sure to check out Cherry’s fantastic designs as they will also become some of your favorites.
Do you have a fetish for pincushions? I have way more than I actually use, but they are so addictive. If you love them as much as I do, please link your pincushion love up at the My Sister Made Me Do It linky party. It starts on September 2nd and runs through September 9th.
