A finish.....and progress Show and Tell

New Table Runner Came to life......

Remember the table runner in my last post and how I said I had an idea running around in my brain?  Well the idea wouldn't go away so I made it. Great idea at the time but now I have another idea/project running through my brain ..... more on that later :o)

My "original" Hometown table runner has been moved over to the Buffet and this new one is sitting on our dining table.

I love the fabrics in this range and it is still my current favourite.
One of our living areas backs onto this dining area and there is a general red theme throughout so I might make a couple of cushions to coordinate it all some time in the future (no this is not the project currently "haunting" my brain!)

..... Quick updates on other projects .....

Christmas Bags

So far I have one Bag front stitched and the other is nearly half way.

Made using my scraps of Lynette Anderson's new range of fabric "Scandinavian Christmas"
I am going to need to purchase some more fabric to complete the bags and I am happy with how they are coming together.

Vignette Mystery Quilt Block 2/3

A lot of stitching on this one but I am getting there, slowly.

Scandinavian Christmas

At a stand still.  I need to sit and sew on all those hearts!

My Birdie Stitches Block for September is all traced, I just need to find the time to sit and stitch it.

Miss L's Once Upon a Time Block for this month is still at the Shop!!!  Arhhh. I was there just the other day but got talking and buying other stuff and forgot to get it.  Easily done when you feel like a kid in a candy store only the candy is fabric :o)

Lastly ...... remember this?

The sewing instruction are being held back a little so people have a chance to catch up which it totally OK with me because it will give me a chance to work on the other project in my head!

I have over 900 of the 1008 yo-yo's needed so am super pleased with that!

Thank you for hanging with me on this long post.

Enjoy what is left of your weekend.
