This is a quilted table runner or wall hanging, your choice. I'd love to keep it, it's one of my favorite Fat Cat patterns.... and a freebie on her site if you'd like to make one! I used almost all of my favorite Japanese prints for this. Finished size is approximately 37"x12 1/2".
How to win? Make a Christmas gift for your 2011 gift stash! You can read the full list of rules [ahem, RULE] here. If you make a gift and either link to my end-of-the-month post or email me a picture, you will be entered in the give-away.
As always, if you have any questions, just email me!
I've started cutting my scraps for some scrappy bookmarks, everyone on my list is getting a few.
The gorgeous tutorial for these is here, at Shelley's 7LayerStudio blog - beautiful place, with great tutorials! Such a great idea, thanks Shelley! I can't wait to post a pic of mine too. How is your gift making going? I know several of you are done!
One thing that helps me stay on track throughout the month is a wall calendar. I've been without one - just haven't found one I liked. Of course I have my gorgeous calendar that Jenny made me, but that's my working calendar - all my notes go in it, and it travels with me - and I need something on the wall with big numbers that I can see first thing in the morning, and at a glance. For years, I would always have a Mary Englebreit calendar on my wall, I love her art - and I finally found one for this year!
Isn't that a happy thing?
Did you know that surrounding yourself with lovely things lowers your blood pressure and makes you happier? Well, I made that up, but I like it. I do know that scientific studies show sewing lowers your blood pressure. It must work - my blood pressure is excellent.
I'll be back soon with more tutes - I surely am collecting them!
