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 60th 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!
Hi, my name is Fleurette, welcome to my blog. I’m a wife and mother. Both my children live, work and study in Cape Town so my sweet miniature daschunds, Sasha and Suzi, keep me company while I enjoy doing all the things I love, quilting, applique, stitching, knitting, crochet, reading, gardening. I hope you enjoy your visit and please feel free to leave a comment; I would love to hear from you. Warm wishes from sunny Durban, South Africa!
