Make Lemonade

Good morning! I'm trying to get back in the groove.  If you follow me on Instagram  you'll have seen that I have been oh so slowly working on a table runner from Sherri's book, Tablerunner Bliss.

I cut myself a little kit like Elizabeth used to make me. I fell in love with Brenda Walton's Limonella fabrics, particularly the lovely lemon focal print.  I paired it with a green  gingham print my friend Sharon sent me, and the blue PKM mini gingham. 

I chose this runner with the large block centers, all the better to show off the focal fabric. Of course it was quick and easy as well, which makes it a great fun project.

I love how it turned out.  Of course what always holds me up?  FINISHING. I never know what to do, and I know my machine quilting attention span is pretty short.  BUT!
I saw Miss Luella's wonderful log cabin quilt on Instagram and I think that wavy quilting would be perfect.  I would only need to mark the first row, then use my walking foot with the guide on it to complete it.

We'll see how fast I get on that! I have some ideas for other projects percolating in my mind and I might want to work on those next. In the mean time, I saw these on a trip to Home Goods recently?  Perfect right?

Coffee on the porch

Morning friends, how are you?  The sun is shining here in PamKittyVille and all the roses are blooming up a storm.  I've been dead heading like crazy and hoping for a speedy second bloom.  You can't beat an Iceberg rose for  the wow factor. 

Monday morning I was using a cute little cup I brought home from mom's to have my coffee.  It's old and stained with tea and I think she probably picked it up at an antique shop.  It's a cute design and it made me happy to use it.  ANYWAY... when I walked out I saw the squired hanging off the feeder.  

I was sure it would run off while I tried to grab a picture.  Nope.  Then I went back in and got my camera, which turned out to be out of batteries, so I went back in and got my big camera, nearly out of battery so I went  back out and got up close with my phone and that squirrel didn't bat an eye.  Wow. I guess that's some excellent bird food. 
I hope all is well with you! xo
