Design Wall

This week I am working on the Tree Tablerunner'
s from Sew Kind of Wonderful. Have the first couple of rows done for the first runner, and pieces cut and ready to sew for the next two. Like what I have done so far! this one will be pretty scrappy as I will be adding two more green trees to finish.

The next two runners will be out of green fabrics, and yes will also be a bit scrappy.

Scrappy Greens

Ready to sew!
Hope to have all complete by the end of the week- Check back to see progress.

Sunday Stash Report

I have been a little out of action for the last couple of weeks due to Surgery that happened on August 7. I had spine surgery to replace a couple of disks in my neck that were pinching some nerves. It was very successful, and I am well on my way to recovery. Back to getting some sewing done and yes, a finish to report. Antique Rose Star below, finished and looking good! I will be off work until September 10th, so hope to get a little more sewing time in and a few more finishes under my belt.

Antique Rose Star

A trip to Rosie's, yielded the fabrics below. First, from the sale room the perfect backing for Antique Rose Star, and I got a yard free! 5 yards for the price of 4, and on sale.

Next up a pink for the inner border and possibly binding, and a couple of fabrics to help complete the tree table runners-my next project,
