I've been sewing rows of butterflies, apples, flying geese, and cups of cocoa. Our schedule has been a new row every two weeks.
With snow on the ground again earlier this week, I was busy inside trying to sew a bit ahead for the row that will be due while I'm picking up Granny in SC. Here's a sample:And here are all six rows I've completed below. I'm not sure which is my favorite--maybe the apples! In other crafty news, this week I sewed the 12th and final Block of the Month for our Saturday Sampler class at Patchwork Plus. Class is over...but much work still to be done to sew them all together for a quilt!And finally, this week I put the binding on the table runner I made for my sister. The charm pack was a Christmas gift to her with a promise to make the runner and deliver it when I visited.
The fabric is Kate Spain's Sunnyside, and it's the easy Disappearing Nine-Patch pattern. Since my sister has a new yellow kitchen, I tried a bright yellow tablecloth to see how it would look:And here's another shot that may show the fabrics a little better: So the sewing machine, long sewing table, and scraps of fabric have all been put away for a couple of weeks. More sewing projects when I return.
In the meantime, the girls are gearing up for the first Farmers' Market of the season--next Saturday, April 5th! Is it that time already?!
If you're local, why not visit them if you're in the market for Hannah's wonderful homemade goat's milk soap or some of Sarah's delicious pies and cupcakes. The Mountain Musings' kitchen is destined to be hopping!
