On my design wall..

This is what I have been working on. My first table runner.

I found the pattern in one of my Australian country craft magazines. I love piecing and applique together in a quilt. I used 5" charms from my stash.

So now I have to add the leaves and vines - the vines are embroidered chain stitch. I used my GO! Baby  and Rose of Sharon die for the flowers and leaves. I used 24 flowers instead of 36 as in the pattern - they are much smaller.  I have two finishes. I hand quilted my two mini quilts

Lately it has been kind of hectic here. My son and daughter flew home for my husbands birthday. Lots of entertaining family and friends, a huge family reunion, three funerals and lots of shopping with my daughter.
Now I'm happy to get back to my sewing. I hope all mom's had a wonderful Mothers Day!


  1. Love your snail trail mini! And your colour choices for your table runner!

  2. I love the colours you used in your table runner. That is going to be a beauty!
    Well done on finishing two projects, in between all the activities with the family.

  3. LOVE that table runner - how gorgeous!! And your mini quilts are darling! Happy Birthday to your hubby!!!!

  4. You have been busy!! Everything is lovely! Well done! I especially like you latest table runner project.

    Have a super great sewing and stitching day.
