A UFO came out of the cupboard

Hubby went back to work today, and Itty Bitty went back to University.  I had the whole day, and the whole place to myself (unless you count Gibby, and we probably should!).  I puttered around, ran the dust cloth around, and did some tidying.  And just as I planned...I finished the last 24 blocks for Shirt Stripe Boxes.  Now I have to borrow the book from the library again so I can figure out how to put it together!  

I had barely put a dent in the day, so I decided to pull out an old project to work away on.  I found a kit for a table runner that I bought a couple of years ago at a quilt show.  I had barely started it, because I had made a cutting mistake, and had to replace one of the fabrics.  Well, I found the fabric I needed, and got to work on the table runner pictured on the back cover of "Cottage Charms" Art To Heart - Nancy Halvorsen.

It's been awhile since I've done much appliqué, and I love all of the Art To Heart designs.

  1. That table runner looks so spring-like. A good project to work on in the dark of winter.
