No more storm

It looks like the storm is over so is the sewing for today because it is back to work! And that is ok because I did get a lot done yesterday..... I enjoyed working on this table runner.. "Entertwined Hearts". My sister, Simone, had given me the pattern a long time ago and I had never attempted to do it . All done!

Next I decided to get to some of the valentine fabric and cut out the placemats as I won't have time to do all the projects on Saturday...I cut out two of each fabric....

this one, because the pattern is so busy, I decided to just do the crazy quilting on it...
The other two I machine appliqu├ęd some hearts... Ready for the hand sewing of the binding!

Since I was on a roll I decided to cut out the fabric for my table topper for the party Saturday
And the hearts..

Oh what a party! Like we were discussing Michelle and I .. it is so great not to have to worry about what to wear. I love these parties that the dress code is come as you are!
See you Saturday!

  9. And isn't it fun knowing you can sew in your PJs and no one cares...LOL

    I think I'll wear my hair in a pony tail, put fresh PJs on after my morning shower, drink coffee, eat cookies and "JUST SEW"
