Getting Lots Done!


Well I just realized next wenesday will be my first anniversary of writing my blog!!! I actually opened it in 2007, but my first post was April 28th 2009!!! So I guess I'll have to plan something for a celebration.....watch for an announcement!!



My nieces birthday was a while ago, but she asked me to make a boot bag for her ,when she goes back and forth to her horse stuff...never saw one before, so I got some of this neat tack fabric and designed one myself. hope she likes it!!



I liked Barbara's Border tablerunner so much, I decided to make myself one last night. How easy are these babies!!!!



We have made my former sewing room in the basement into a family room. Nothing special, just trying to make it look a little better. painted the yellow walls a very soft blue, made these cushions and ottoman cover to spruce it up a bit!!!



Made this wallhanging to cover the stainless heat shield we had to put up by the wood stove.



Received this lovely little card from Marylynn today...isn't it gorgeous!! I think it's called Iris Folding!!
Don't forget to stop back in the next few days...I'll be announcing some fun for you!!!

Great post. You certainly have been busy. I've been wanting to make one of these table runners too. Love the design, so I'm happy to hear you thought it was easy. Now I'm just going to need to track down a pattern (or take time to make my own). Lovely design. Yours looks great!

Oh Thanks so much, it is very easy...it was a free pattern on the net a few years ago, and they took it down and now sell it!!

Love what you did in the basement too. It looks bright and cherry. The card is IRIS FOLDING and is quite simple and easy to do! Glad you liked it!
