Falling into sewing....

From this ......I wanted a table runner to go with my fall decor but couldn't find anything I liked. I was at my friends, Rebecca Sorenson, and of course she had one that she had quilted. She got me started on the right tract and I spent the week making one. It was fun sewing again, I just don't like lugging out the sewing machine from the closet. But the finished project turned out pretty good. I happy with it. Now I just have to get into the fall spirit (it is kind of hard when it is still warm out. Hopefully on our trip to Nauvoo and various church history sites this week, the weather will be cool.

I love the title as much as I love the runner. If I weren't at school right now, you would be my inspiration to peruse Joanne's for an hour or so and create something myself. But these things pass...
Great looking blog!

Show off ;) It looks great! Almost as great as my beautiful carousel horse will look someday... once I decide on the colors, that is.

I love it, especially the pumpkins around the edge. 2 of my favorite fall things, pumpkins and candy corn (I like how they look)
