Okay, so I've been working on another memory quilt and the Higgeldy Piggeldy quilt this week. No quilting, no binding whatsoever in ages.
Pulled out my pile of scraps and whipped up a new table runner
for the dining room table. A nice, long, skinny one that hopefully won't get pushed into a wad or removed from the table because the laptops take up too much room.
Lined it with a very popular print and used the cutest little plaid for the binding.
And here it is with what is left of my almost 7ft tall blue/purple delphiniums (for Dorrie) that were demolished this week in a three day storm festiva!
Lots of love in this table quilt. Vintage, designer, gifted scraps and some fabric from the 70's again! What is it about scrappy quilts I love so much? The stories behind the fabrics? The way cool selection and variety to look at (almost like an I Spy quilt)? Whatever it is, I'm hooked!
On the 4th of this month, Javi's class presented their mothers with roses at the graduation ceremony. I brought mine home and put it in a cool, cobalt blue vase under the hood over the range top.
I'm not sure how or why-but the stem is sprouting new shoots--as if it's an outside rosebush growing new branches. I'm watching it daily to see if a root system develops and where the new shoots will go. How cool is that!
I'm spending part of my day (wedged inbetween everything else I have to do) checking out the other Friday Finishes at Amy's blog. So grab a tall cuppa and head on over for some delicious, low cal eye candy!
