Sewing Saturday

Butterfly and Nemo was here today, and we girls had a fun day, stitching and chatting. We all acomplished a lot - Nemo was working on a couple of gorgeous stitcheries:


Butterfly worked on a beautiful shawl and some drawstring bags:



Me? I had a goal of finishing the beautiful table runner Rose designed for the workshop, and I started while I was down-under.Before today's work I had stiched the center together, and added the blue border, so today I added the floral yellow, layered it and quilted it. I stitched in the ditch around the stitcheries and their frames, and then did some large stippling all over the patched parts. When the girls left I had gotten to the binding. And now, a few hours later, it's done:


I'm so happy with it! I wasn't sure how it would fit any of my tables, but it looks perfect on the one in the kitchen :o)

Hope you too had a great sewing Saturday! And enjoy the weekend!
Sincerely, Anne Ida
