Oh boy, do I have some catching up to do.
Here is a picture of the Christmas table runner I started a couple of weeks ago.
I have not worked on it any more than I did that day. The next step is a 10″ square with an appliqued poinsettia in it, one for each end. Here’s a close up of the fabrics I chose.
I got distracted a bit. I made the book purse for my niece for a graduation gift, and haven’t got it sent out yet. I also still have the baby quilt on my couch, waiting for a box and a trip to the post office.
I’ve decided to make more of the book purses and list them in an Etsy store. I’m still setting up the store, but I noticed I’d be able to have a link from my blog directly to my store. Each item I finish making will be posted on the blog and then in the store, in case my readers should decide they can’t live without my purses!
Of course, that means I really must go to the thrift store tomorrow for their great weekly clearance sale. I’ll need belts, ribbons, purses (for their hardware), scarves and sewing notion grab-bags, plus anything else that catches my eye.
