I actually sewed this week



YEAH....I sewed this week. I should explain why this is a milestone... I have to be in work at 7am every day so I have to get up at 5:15. By the time I get out of work and run any errands, make dinner, eat and clean up, it's usually 7PM. I have to watch Jeopardy and by then I'm yawning and all I want to do is lay on the couch. This week though I started to seriously take my vitamins, eat more fruit instead of chips and ice cream, and I'm going to bed a little earlier.... I have been able to sew each night for a little bit...which makes me happy.

So, that out of the way, I decided to make my mother a fall tablerunner so I could give it to her when she comes to NJ from Florida in about 3 weeks. I don't remember who forwarded me the pattern but I know I downloaded it from someone's blog. I think the designer had it for free on her blog. Anyhoo...I cut it last night and assembled the center and tonight I put the red border and outside borders on. It was a fairly easy runner to make and fun!!!

Tomorrow I'll run and get some batting and sandwich it so it can be quilted. Michelle made one too in a Halloweenie print and hers came out super cute too.....She's not blogging about it since it's a present for someone special that reads her blog ......

Happy Friday everyone!!!
