Feeling A Little Ombre Today

This morning I pulled some fabric, came up with an idea and had one of those happy times where you cut and sew, doing the maths in your head - and it actually works out.


Another gift is being made and coming together nicely. This will be a table runner for a host family. I'm hoping that I make something that will suit their home as I have never met them nor seen their home. Therefore it is a bit of a daunting thing, making this for them.

Once I had it pieced and basted I came to the conclusion that none of my threads were in the right shade of aqua for quilting this project. That led to a trip to my LQS after the school run. By happenstance, when I got my loyalty card out there I realised I had earned £20 off fabric purchases. Far be it for me to avoid buying fabric, so I came home with the thread, and some much needed basting spray, and an assortment of FQs.


The quilting has commenced, but has been rudely interrupted by the need to make dinner. Apparently they don't have appetites that are suppressed by the joys of pebble quilting like mine is. How inconvenient!

  4. I think they are in need of training! It must be good for their souls to be kept waiting for food! They could always have cooked supper for you instead?

  17. Problem is, if you keep feeding them they keep expecting it, start pointing them in the direction of the cereals and they'll soon get the message! Looking good, i'm sure they'll love it :o)
