Well this has been a BUSY week around our home… getting ready for some freezing weather was quite an undertaking for sure! And I have been sewing on a secret project commissioned to me by a very good friend… using my Cleopatra for the job of appliqueing letters and fashioning the intended banner… more to show when it has been sent off and received by my friend 😉
|the left wall as you walk in the room …. over the buffet|
|to the right of that… or what you see from the doorway directly|
|to the right of that… as you look out by the pond & around my 301 Julius|
|finally the last wall in the room is my design wall and up high I can’t reach well so he added my banner there!|
And on Saturday I rolled the frame… see how foggy it was over the pond through the windows that morning???
Here is a close up of the quilting I worked on this morning…
I am linking all this hand stitching and other hand work I shared this week being glad God gifted me with 2 hands that are ambidextrously useful… to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching Crew HERE . Click on the link to open a new tab on your device to see what everyone else is linking up too!!!!
>>> Finally I need some input from y’all! <<<
My best girlfriend Jannessa gifted me this honeybun & yardage – fabric kit by Moda called “Winterlude”.
It comes with the above pattern… or I could create my own! Do you like one of these other options??? Or do you like the original???
I like both but this would make a table runner 18″ x 60″ for our kitchen & 2 smaller sized placemats as a gift for Jannessa.
The one on the right seems fun for this but I can’t figure out how to make those flatter than 45 degree zig zags… hmmmm
The pattern is in this PDF only version of a book published in 2009 and now out of print….
Here is a photo of the book called “On the Run” by Heather Moulder Peterson. Anyone own this book and wanna sell it??? Or have you heard of this talented designer before and know how easy to follow her patterns are???
I would love to own the book over a PDF that is harder for me to use in the sewing room without LOTS of printing!!!
And that wraps up my week. Hope you are having a great weekend and having tolerable weather no matter where in this world you live… I am enjoying our cold weather for sure!!! It is 35 degrees F at this writing and supposed to top out at 55 later this afternoon.
Until next Sunday… I may have a bag completed (we worked on it yesterday and got about 1/3 done) as a Christmas present for my daughter.
I certainly hope you leave feedback on your thoughts on this post if you read to this point 🙂 Have a good week ahead and hope you turned your clocks back an hour too (if you live where Daylight Savings Time is a thing! lol)
