{tiny} Needle Case Tute

Relive The Past

Thursday, March 12, 2009


It's been a whole week since I've posted!! Yes I've been busy sewing! I'm working on at least 4 table runners at the moment, two to have on hand and two as swaps. One of the projects for me is the FREE shamrock table topper by Kim that I mentioned on this post. I'm making the large size and almost have the top done, just in time for St. Paddy's Day! I've also been needle turning by hand some applique flowers on a runner for my Easter Runner Swap partner, Carmen in Georgia. I made a mini hexie stuffed flower and forgot to take a picture before sending it off! (Darn!) I'm making some fun book marks that I need to take photos of. I will have a tutorial AND am going to try to sell some as a fundraiser for Autism. My nephew Brock is autistic and we are trying to raise money for further research. See the top button on the right hand side of my blog. More on that later. Urban and I spent two, yes two hours at D.I. last night (a thrift type shop). I purchased several wool clothing items that I'm going to felt for projects, some items I'm going to recycle into mixed media art, and some games. Urban, Nathan and I have played a 3 year old version of Monopoly several times within the last 24 hours! It's fun, but the rules keep changing!
My parents landed safely on Argentina land early this morning which was a great relief to me, you would think I was the parent, I almost called their mission president to see if they arrived ok!
Tomorrow I work at the quilt shop then Urban and I are going to a live performance of Thomas the Tank Engine! Highlight of the week!
Sorry this post doesn't have pictures, I'll throw in another random one from my files.
OK, this is somewhere in Oregon last year. We took a couple of weeks and drove the west coast beginning at the top of Oregon (Hwy 101) and ending in San Francisco. (Hwy 1) Then we cut over to Tahoe then back up home.
It was GREAT!
