I actually SEWED something! My Aunt’s birthday is coming up this week and I’ve been working on this tablerunner for what seems like forever. I’m not happy with the quilting, but I did learn something from it, so it’s not all bad.
I did some feathered wreaths in the centre which I thought turned out quite nice.
Problem is, you can’t see them on the overall finish. After I had done these wreaths, I didn’t have a clue what to do with the rest of the background, so I ‘kind of’ echoed the outside of the feathers – and not very well either.
See all those little paw prints on my table? Here is the culprit.
She looks so innocent, doesn’t she – don’t let that look fool you, she’s full of mischief. However, all is forgiven as she likes to sew and curls up on any fabric that happens to be lying on my table.
Yesterday a friend and I did a shop hop of 3 Niagara area quilt stores. The give-away at each store was extremely generous and we had a nice day.
I’m proud to report I only bought one – yes, one – kit and when another girlfriend came over today for a sew day, I actually got the top finished.
I could let you think I am a sewing whiz, but it was a flannel panel and I only had to add the two borders.
It’s one of the nicer panels I’ve seen lately and a nice size. I find so many of them are long and narrow and just don’t look right.
Leo is away fishing this weekend so I don’t have any meals to cook. I should, however, tackle the mound of laundry that seems to reproduce at almost the same rate as my fabric stash!
