Just a couple of things

Just got home from a fun supper date with our older daughter, her fiance, and 2 other couples who've been our friends for over 20 years. We celebrated our 33rd wedding anniversary. It's so good to spend time with friends and family!

It has been a pretty good week, with my birthday on Wednesday and our anniversary on Thursday. The downside was that I spent neither with my husband as we were both out of town for work. Oh well . . .

I had to work on Saturday, but when I got home after a long 10 hour day - there was something really fun in my mailbox. It was this beautiful fabric postcard from Anya, thanking me for picking her name in my Loralie fabric giveaway awhile ago. I love this postcard. I'm glad I picked Anya's name too.

I did the handstitching on the binding for a table runner while sitting in my hotel room this week. What a nice relaxing way to spend the evening when you have to be away from home for work. This one is handquilted.

This table runner was a bonus project made with leftover cuts from my Day and Night quilt. When you cut the pieces for the original quilt out of the strip sets, you are left with sections that end up forming 2 different block patterns. I bought a little extra fabric and added the setting triangles to make this different than the book showed.

This was my first bonus project. I hope to finish the other one later in the week. Or - since I'm a little tired of sewing on yellow and red, I might have to start a new project.


  1. love the table runner and that fabric postcard....

  2. I'm glad the postcard got to you in fairly decent shape. Thanks again for picking me in the giveaway!
