I am off to the Ferry this morning to pick up my middle daughter. She moved to Vancouver this spring after she received her Law Degree. We are planning on spending the day together, have a little lunch…..maybe take in a shop or two….do a little mother/daughter bonding…ahhhh life is good!
On the quilting front, I have been busy finishing off this little runner. It took me longer than I thought it would (they always do!)….AND of course it would help if I could leave the computer alone!! I swear, I am addicted! But I am pleased with the runner….very cute and fallish but I think I will be able to keep it out year round. I accidentally used Warm and Natural for batting which isn’t great for hand quilting as the needle has a hard time gliding through. Therefore my stitches are a little bigger than normal but I’ll just tell people that is the effect that I wanted to achieve…ha ha. All in all, not bad for being made out of old coats and blazers!
Rylie seems to like the bluebirds….What do you think?
Oh, and I should mention that my husband made this table!! Isn’t it nice! He took up woodworking after he retired! So while I am upstairs cutting up fabric, he’s downstairs in his shop cutting up wood….aahhhh….a marriage made in heaven! :o)
It’s a good thing~ Pat at Silver Thimble is having a fantastic Give-Away. Hurry over and check it out!
Have a super Saturday and happy Quilting!
