Sliding in sideways
In 30 minutes we have August - the first month of autumn.
School starts in 3 weeks.
The evenings are getting darker already, even if we still have summer days left to enjoy.
This table runner was finished today - an UnFinished Object from this winter.
It is 17" x 50".
I am not really one for autumn colours, but I really Like this one.
I have used 2 different rust and 2 different wine reds for the leaves, even if it does not show in the photo.
I used triangle paper - Triangulation 2.0 - for the HST, and they went together fast and accurate. I also like the option on printing HST paper on my own printer, at need, instead of buying rolls in all different sizes.
I see they are out with a new book - the front cover table runner makes me want to make it.
I do not need a book to do one. I guess I am lucky.
Well - I promised to finish 3 things before starting anything new, didn't I ?
1 down, 2 to go.
I have so many quilts I want to sew, and it is nice to have a head full of ideas instead of a house filled with Ufos, believe me ;-)
I Need to do some scrap busting and some stash busting, and I have taken Vicky's challenge of No Buy in August - see July 27.
We are many and it is always fun to do things as a group.
Strange really - as I have no buying issue really, but knowing I am not allowed make me urge for it..... hmmmmm ..... anyone else feeling the same way ?
The same way with the finish 3 before starting something new - makes my head spin with ideas.... hmmmmm - strange indeed.
I would not feel the same way if I were not allowed to eat cooked carrots for a month ;-)
