I finished my twilled table runner just in time for Spring. This was so much fun to do, and thank you Cyndi over at for designing this cute pattern.

I am teaching a class on Twilling in May at a guild meeting and all in attendance will receive a kit to "twill" a red basket - that's 130 kits I have to get assembled...YIKES! It will be fun though and will be great to have others enjoying this technique along with me.




I had a run in with a coffee cup this month and ended up with a cut tendon in one finger and stitches in two fingers. I could show you pictures, but they really are rather gross. This has limited my sewing a good bit (right hand) but I have managed to do a little appliqué in addition to hemming the binding on the table runner.


I have made some progress on the appliqué border of my klosje quilt. This one makes me smile as I think of giving it to my yet-to-be-born granddaughter as her "big girl" quilt.

I have lots of time to finish the appliqué and get it hand quilted, but doesn't it look so sweet -just like I know she will be.

I have started a baby quilt for her using the Chubby Chicks pattern. Got as far as cutting out the chicks for appliqué when that darn coffee cup attacked me. Hopefully my hand will be well enough this weekend to finish cutting out the blocks and I can start on the appliqué.




Before the coffee cup attack, I finished house two of the Cottage Grove pattern. I still want to add a little embroidery - maybe some daisies along the sidewalk, but that will have to wait until the bandages come off. I also need to add something in that center gable, but I just can't make up my mind as to what. Maybe a round window? What do you think?


Thanks for stopping by,

Wow, that sounds like a dangerous cup. Are you sure it was coffee in there? Still, you certainly got a lot done and I think the gable is perfect as is.

Lovely! I love the wee house blocks, all very spring looking! We are heading into winter here in New Zealand.

Oooo got to watch out for those fiesty coffee cups. Hope it heals fast.

Love the "big girl" quilt. All your projects are so cute.

All your quilts are wonderful. Sorry to read of your injury. Hope you are healing fast and can get back to normal ASAP.
