Finished projects


The top photo is a table runner I made this past week.  My son and daughter-in-law gave me some pretty fabric squares for Christmas.  This set of them included 50 4" squares.  I thought they would make a cute spring table runner.  I say "son and daughter-in-law" but I'm really quite certain that my son had nothing to do with picking them out....:) I love receiving quilt fabric, and it was a great gift!

The bottom photo is an apron, hot pad and oven mitt I made for a bridal shower gift. The shower is this afternoon - I better get the gift wrapped up and get my clothes changed and out the door soon! I just love the fabric with the blenders. I thought about adding a couple of Marguarita glasses and some Marguarita mix to the gift, but the shower is at a church, and I'm not sure it would be appreciated! :)

The picture below was taken this morning, as a fire burned down the bank in our little town.  So devastating.  We are lucky that no one was hurt, but it is a huge loss for our community.  Fire departments from 3 other towns came to assist our local fire department.

They are so much cuter in person!! Good thing that daughter in law knows how to shop!
What a way to wake up this morning! I was thinking about all the photos and personal stuff that was lost in the fire. Holy cow.

How nice to have a DIL that shops for fabrics for you! They will love the table runner. The shower gift is great too! Oh My DOG I read about that fire and man o man how terrible.
