Autumn Leaves Table Runner

When I quilted this table runner I used my own design for the big leaves in the middle and the smaller ones and tendrils on the side. On the back side of the runner the quilting is clearly visible.

I just checked it, I was already making the binding on the 21st of September and I was planning to finish this autumn quilt on the next day. And still, I can only show the finished table runner now, when every good quilter has been long working on the winter quilts already.

By the time I was finished with it (a couple of days later of course) the sun went into hiding for some time and it only came out yesterday. I started to take pictures instantly and all the while I had to acknowledge that much like the weak counterpart, the very strong sunlight is also not very advantageous. Hobby photographers have a hard life!

I’d like to upload it tonight on Etsy, maybe someone would still like to decorate their home this autumn!

And you won’t believe it but I’m making the bindings for the matching mug rugs. Maybe I’ll finish it in the next couple of days, but who knows?

We Are

I wrote a long post for this treasury, but then I deleted it without any worries, as these wonderful women talk to us anyway, no need for my essay.

I’m Thinking In A Blazing Knife

Search engines are gonna love this title!

Actually on the encouragement of my teammates I started to work on finding a packaging method for my fabric boxes that protects them on the long road – even if they are headed overseas.

For this I would need to cut expanded polystyrene foam sheets in a way that the small white beads don’t flood our home. We had several ideas so far as we’ve been thinking about this with my husband for days, and now I’m starting go get a little angry at these sheets.

So that is why I’m back and forth, thinking in blazing knives.
