And I finished my DIL's table runner ahead of schedule. It's shown on our table and if Kris doesn't like the colors I'll keep it! The colors are perfect for our table and looks really good under my clay bowl!
Yesterday while doing some laundry I stayed in my sewing room until the quilting was finished. Laundry breaks are good when you're doing free motion quilting or sewing of any kind! Gets you up and away from the machine. I added the binding and got most of it sewn while watching a movie on Netflex. Lindsay, from Mythical Antiquity, was also looking at getting Netflex for those times when you're working away at your art. I love, love Netflex! I probably listen more then watch but it's great and cheaper than cable! By the way, check out Lindsay's blog! This young lady does BEAUTIFUL beading!! And I do mean beautiful beading! She finished a cuff called Snow White which incorporates beading and embroidery!
Later today I'm heading over to my friend Mary's house to take a BD gift for her great, grand daughter, Carmella. She turns 4 on the 4th! I bought her a cute book, Box of Tricks by Katie Cleminson. Of course I had to make Carmella her own 'box of tricks' and inside I put a Polar Bear pillow pet! The book is about a girl who uses magic to have animals appear and she get a huge polar bear! Carmella's bear isn't that big but I think she'll like it just the same. He's so cuddly and opens up into a pillow!
Here's the box I decorated for Carmella. I just painted over a box I received in the mail then stamped and stenciled it. Figure Carmella can paint or draw on her 'magic box' too!
