Well, I've been busy and running since Tues., which was a fun day having lunch with Jan and Marilyn and being consumers as well!! Wed, and today was more running around!! Whew...but yesterday we had a rainy day so rather than just sit and bead or stitch on my challenge piece, I decided to make a new table runner for the house here in Florida. Jan/Larry have blues in their kitchen and I just happened to have brought with me some blue print fabric....so yesterday, I sandwiched a yard and started some FMQ'ing. Here are a few shots of the runner...hard to see the quilting as I used 28wt navy blue Aurifil thread.
I'm almost finished with the quilting then I'll add the binding, using the same fabric. I'm not sure if I'll paint in some of the areas of the feathers or not...So maybe I'll finish up the quilting this afternoon. I have dinner ready to heat up when Bob gets home from golf so I have about an hour or so to 'play'!
I just got back shortly ago from running around again! On the way home, I stopped at the new Yards N' Yarn shop! How cool as they carry yarn and fabric and notions! Talk about being in heaven! Wow! And great prices on the fabric. I needed approximately 7 yards for Ian's quilt and was able to purchase batik fabric for $8.99 a yard! They are getting more fabrics in but have a nice selection already. They have a stitch night called Thread Therapy where you can bring any project (e.g. knitting, quilting, whatever) and sit, stitch and just have fun. It's every Thursday 3-5...which I think is great. I don't like going out at night and would prefer to attend these functions during the day! I might have to talk Peggy into going one day!!
More running this weekend....I'm going to the garden show on Sat., then off to the Tioga art fair on Sunday! Monday is stay home day then Tuesday we're going to the Appleton museum and lunch at a great little cafe!
I'm going to stop at the Yards N Yarn shop on the way home..no, the ladies don't know it yet but they will! I'm driving!
