My Week in Review . . .

Charm Garden[1]

Joan has finished her Garden Charm Table Runner and I think it looks great!  Head over and have a visit with her and she’ll explain the tartan plaid binding that she used – wonderful stuff!

Heart Buttons[1]

Plus her heart buttons are adorable . . . do you know how many different styles of buttons are out there?  Take a Google moment and have a look – you’ll be amazed.

Carol also made one using the Bar Harbor charms and used embroidery instead of the flowers and buttons – you need to have a look at this one too – very patriotic.

This is the table runner that I’ve been working on since my last sewing day with the Undercover Stripper group.  I have all the pieces paper-pieced and it’s all ready to sew together but I thought I’d wait until our next sewing day together to finish it off.  It’s turning out pretty good so far and I’m really loving the colors – pattern by Judy Niemeyer called Seasonal Table Runners.

  Spent all day Friday sewing the borders on this quilt . . . I’m waiting for the backing fabric to show up and then I think I’m going to send this one out to Estevan for some magic quilting to be done on it.  This quilt is turning into another one of my very favorites and I’d hate to wreck it with my quilting inadequacies.

Finally finished all the quilting on this biggie and I’m in the midst of hand stitching the binding down . . . re-runs on TV are not conducive to sewing on binding . . .

I even found some time to sit and doodle for an hour or two . . . always love doing that.

Tomorrow is back to the old office and working for a living . . . you can only play for so long right?  Another four weeks and I’ve booked off for another week . . . can’t wait!
