A Small Peek

Here is a small peek at My Happy Place RAL.




Can you guess what it is?  I'm afraid that I can't tell you until September 25th, when I will share my row with you.  I can't wait!

I hope that you are enjoying seeing everyone else's rows.

Happy Sewing,

Skinny Minnie Table Runner


This is a smaller version of the 10 minute table runner called Skinny Minnie Table Runner.  I bought this kit at Cinnamon's Quilt Shoppe in Jacksonville FL on our way to Florida.
It went together so quickly. It took about a half hour to sew it up.  There is no batting.  You could piece some blocks into a row and finish it the same way.  You can also embellish it as you like.  I have 1 button at each end on the flap.  It came with fabric to make yo yo's and the buttons, but I decided just to use the buttons.






Here is a link to a you tube video that shows how to make it.
Enjoy!

Grandma's Kitchen Blocks 9, 10 & 11

Three more blocks done for Grandma's Kitchen! Block 9 The Kitchen Window, Block 10 Recipe Box and Block 11 Peppermint Swirls. 

The kitchen window looked out into the backyard and the side yard. There were always flowers around, so I used a floral fabric for the windows. 

I don't remember my Grandma having a recipe box, but my Mom did. The recipe box was floral with stripes, but in blues and yellows. The light floral print is blue flowers, although the rest is not. 

I remember my Great Grandma having a candy dish, which was a glass chicken sitting on the nest. I loved that thing! However, I do not remember what candy was in it!  I made my candy into flowers since I know that my Great Grandma, Grandma and Mom loved flowers. I did use one of my Mom's old buttons for the center of one of the flowers.
On to block 12!

Happy Sewing,
