So it sounds like I am not the only one with a story to go with one of my projects! You were all quite encouraging of my crazy efforts – and I will admit that I wondered if I should include the abbreviated version of the story or just fess up to all of my issues. The only thing that I left out – and this was because I forgot until I reader reminded me - was that I was quite pregnant when I went running through the parking lot after my yarn. I seemed to have blocked that image from my memory, but Joel remembered too. As if you needed another visual to go with that story . . . but turning the page . . .
On Sunday morning we woke up to a winter wonderland.
The weather man predicted 4 inches, but as you can tell from our deck railing, we got slightly more than that. Slightly being about 10 inches more than that!
Church was cancelled that day, along with school and other activities the next day. I continued to hole up and play with my new Summer House fabric.
I’ve got one runner done and several more items almost finished. This runner if from my Little Charmers 7 pattern.
The original colorway is done in Christmas fabrics. It’s more appropriate for this time of year, but I guess I will just be ready with a new runner when the Christmas decorations get packed up.
As you can see, I quilted the new one just the same, but I like the way it accentuates the blocks. I do love a ribbon border.
It was fun to make again and it only took a couple of hours, from start to finish.
I love instant gratification.
Especially when it involves new fabrics!
