Busy as a Bee

I've been so busy, I haven't even thought about blogging...well, that's not exactly true. I've thought about it, but haven't done anything about it! You'll have to be patient if you want to see the sampler I'm working on right now because somebody reads my blog who can't see it yet.

But I have been doing a little sewing for Christmas. And I do mean 'a little'. This table runner is call the 10 Minute Table Runner for a reason. I'm not sure what it is, but I'm sure there's a reason. I took a little longer than that but mostly because I use my sewing machine so rarely that it takes me a while to figure out what's going on. Yesterday, I spent quite a bit of time yelling at it because the tension was so loose. I won't tell you how long it took me to figure out that the needle had come loose and almost unseated. Duh. Once I got it in gear, everything moved along pretty quickly. The really fun part is standing in the fabric department playing with color combinations. 
Please excuse the lovely backdrop for my photos. It's hard to find a well lit place without going outside and laying them in the driveway!


  1. They both look great! Love your color choices. I know what you mean about finding a decent place for photos. It's quite a challenge at this time of year.
