RUNNER FROM QUILTERS CACHE

well yesterday didn't turn out like i thought it was going to....instead of working on part 2 of the challenge i committed myself to i tinkered around in Quilters Cache looking at blocks....

i have been making a lot of 'flying geese' units for that challenge so i thought why not make a few more...in another project and that happened to be a runner...

yesterday i was looking through the bolts i have stacked on the floor in the sewing room and found these fabrics....so what else??? right then and there i got to work on a runner...after a couple hours this is what i came up with


i dont think it took a great picture...more striking in person ...it measures 15x35 inches....simple pattern but i didn't want to get really elaborate so that it took too much time.... i have a lot of other things that will take a lot of time...i finished the border this morning while drinking my coffee...

if i have patience today i may do more machine quilting...got a bag to do and put together, and my challenge part 2 is ready for quilting and if i run out of those i have 2 small quilts i can put together and quilt.....

on the agenda today i think its the kitchens turn....the dishes are creeping out on the counter now so its time to get them washed up and i will need to spend some time cooking today...maybe enough for a couple days then i can get in some good sewing time....

my son was here last night and he helped me put the summer chairs in the garage for the winter....oh how i hate to do that cause it looks so bare on the porch even though there is a metal bench that stays out in the winter....and of course my other little bench that i sit on when i feel couped up in the winter that is on the back porch on the south....i put my coat on and sit in the sun on calm days if there isn't snow there....people might think i am crazy doing that but it sure helps to keep away depression from lack of sunlight....

i could never be a cave person....well maybe i might if it was a sewing cave with all the goodies....ok i am outta here...lol....more later......

  1. I do so love all tones of purples and purply pinks so you are speaking to me. This is gorgeous! And I too, love to see outside and feel the air, and listen to the sounds and just relax..some of the best days are the ones when we can still appreciate the beauty of nature even when she is being a bit naughty with the weather! Good for you!
