Time flies!

Time has flown by since I returned from my trip.  It was a great time and I am know I am so lucky to have great friends with great families who welcome me into their home like a long lost member.  Nanette's family is so wonderful and I really enjoy spending time with them.  I was lucky to meet two of her sisters this time and a third sister sent me the most adorably sweet Christmas ornament she had made.  How lucky am I?  Well super lucky.   The weather was amazing and I did get to drive in snow just a tad, the fall weather there is glorious which of course made it hard to return home to ninety degree plus weather, but what can you do? You can't just move in with people.  (can you?)

I came home with a bit of a cold, so I took it easy for the past couple of days but that's boring after a while.  Plus my little give away has been weighing on my mind, so today's the day. I picked a number and counted down and Sharrieboberry, who said "Suh-weet! I love this Buttercup mix. So cute. I'm partial to the name buttercup. That's the name of my sweet pup!" is the winner!   So Sharrie email me at rocketqltr at yahoo dot com and give me your mailing address and I'll send this little kit along to you.  I hope you ordered your copy of Tablerunner Bliss by Sherri Falls!  Also Sharrie, we'd love to see a picture of that sweet pup !!!!
That's it for me.  What's new with you? Hope you have a happy weekend!

A little escape!

Morning friends! How are you?  In an unexpected turn of events I'm headed out on a bit of a road trip this morning.

I hadn't gotten any farther on my runner than those gingham centers so I packed it up, along with my machine and some other odds and ends and I'm headed out.  Because I am going to be gone, I'll leave the give away open till I get back so there's more time to sign up. Not too many comments there! 
I'm excited for my little trip, maybe I'll see you on Instagram!  xop

Good morning friends! How are you?  I've been thinking about all my friends in Texas and now in Florida and other states effected by the hurricanes and hoping that you're all safe and sound. 
Well today is the second Tuesday of Tablerunner Tuesdays.  You may remember that I showed my book and some PKM fabrics to make the Buttercup tablerunner.  I really loved the combo I picked out and now I'm working on  PKM version of Buttercup.  No photos though.  I'm only at the beginning of sewing it all together.

If you'd like a chance to win a little kit of the PKM fabrics for Buttercup leave a comment   for a chance... here's the fabrics, yellows for the gingham centers, navy for the flower petals and green posy for the leaves, apples on white for the background and a nice green plaid for the binding.   Remember I'll need your email address if you're a no-reply commenter.

Of course this DOES NOT include the book, so you need to grab one of those over at Fat Quarter Shop
That's about it here.  Hope all is well with you!  xo

Tablerunner Tuesday

Good morning! How are you friends?  I know here in California we've got a lot of summer left, but Labor Day weekend always feels like the end of the season to me.  Was it fun?
Today is the first day of the Tablerunner Bliss Sew Along.    Sherri's book is full of great tablerunners for all occasions.  The first in the book is Blossom, and you can check that out over on Anorina's blog today.

Buttercup is the second tablerunner in the book and I couldn't resist going with some yellows for this tablerunner based on the name.  Fat Quarter Shop invited me to select some Moda fabric for my runner, and I chose from the 30's Playtime line by Chloe's Closet.

Those little dogs caught my eye right away and I knew I had perfect props to go with it!  I can't resist the cheerfulness of 30's reproductions.

Buttercup sewed up so fast, and I think it turned out so cute.  It's a quick project to stitch up and I quilted it myself with a lot of stitching in the ditch quilting. I love a project that it bite sized, that you can cut and sew without really having to think about it too much.  I love sewing!
