Is fast approaching and I saw this cute shamrock fabric which was just begging to be made into a tabletopper.
I will give this to mum tomorrow. I think that I have made a tabletopper for her table for all seasonal celebrations now. I hope she likes this pattern!
Talking tables I finished off the runner and placemats below for my daughter-in-law for her birthday last month. I made 6 placemats but the table that was used in the "shoot" is smaller than her table so I only could only 4 fit on it.
For sometime now I have been working on learning and perfecting foundation piecing which has been a very slow and time consuming process for me but I have been slogging along with a bedrunner which is going to be needed very soon as the nights begin to chill down around this time of the year. What I did forget about was how tedious and even more time consuming is the removal of the papers. A good thing to do in front of tv of a night. I have spent 3 nights so far and estimate that I should finish if off tonight so that I can make a start on the borders. One way to fill up the recycling bin.
Next time I blog I hope to have the finished item up.
In the meantime happy sewing.
