Yesterday I had the overwhelming urge to finish something…do you get those? Maybe it’s just me because I get to the sandwiching stage and for some reason the quilt/table runner/whatever gets put away in the cupboard.
So, this table runner that I pulled out even had the backing cut and the binding made ready to go! What is wrong with me?! It only took a couple of hours to finish!
Honestly I am ready to give up on photography, I just can not get a decent photo! I will take it outside tomorrow to get some better photos for you!
I wanted to show you my new-to-me sideboard that motivated me to finish the runner! It was my grandmothers, I love having special things that belonged to my grandparents!
A close up of the stitchery. This runner is a pattern by Jenny of Elefantz and it is called Oopsie Daisy Runner. I did change it a bit but I think most of us do that!
Today I laid out the Star quilt to start putting it together…I told BW I am going to call this the Headache quilt and he laughed…seriously it is like putting a puzzle together with a million inset seams!
And I thought I might show you a corner of my sewing space!
The table I use also belonged to my grandmother but from my dads side…I love this table and the top is beautiful and glossy which is why I have a special ugly brown cloth covering it.
Looking at the photo now I see junk I didn’t notice before but that is life! I have kids! I would love to make myself a new sewing machine mat and thread catcher/bin too one day!
Now I’m off to make dinner and then I might do some more on the stars later tonight!
PS I am feeling much better now…Thanks for all the well-wishes!
