Let's Sew Party

Tout fini! Kelly , you thought me well... look I even have my ends neatly in bowl!

And here it is... table topper in the "Verna" . This is another wonder because I NEVER go for the bright colors! Remember I am a KT girl.....
Oh but I love my table runner.. just that "springy" brightness I was looking for.
Well girls it has been fun sewing with you and I apologize I have to leave a bit early... 5:00 pm here. I am hosting a dinner party for friends so I have been running from sewing room to kitchen in preparations for my dinner. I will definitely visit your blogs later for those of you I haven't had the time to visit and I will certainly drop by tomorrow to see all your beautiful finished products!

How is everyone doing? I have my movie picked..... An oldie but goodie♥♥♥

One of my favourite!
My Stone Cottage Block is all done! Now I move on to....

the table topper...love the "Verna"♥♥♥

A quick lunch of pasta casserole and I'll be back to visit....


I really need a bright and "springy' table topper so what could be better than one made the Verna? Oh Yea! this will be my first project!

Next I will be doing one block . The pattern is called Stone Cottage and I am making it in the Buggy Barn "In thePink 11". I do one block a day.
