I am gradually working down the pile of projects I want to get done. I picked up this piece of printed material at Good Sammy's (op-shop) a while back. I paid a whole 50 cents for it. It was marked down from $1.00.
I machine embroidered a few butterflies on it in different sizes. I have just noticed the different colour of the material in the different photo's.
Some simple quilting around the butterflies and it was done. Some black homespun for the binding and backing was used from the stash.
The table runner will be a present for Ainsley and Julian's new home. I think the table runner will be right at home on there dining table. Did you notice the candle holder on the runner? Ainsley got one of those dreadful palm leaves that fall down and varnished the inside of it. A perfect candle holder for her table.
I dropped this quilt off at PMH last week along with the Teddy Bear. The ladies at the shop were so grateful for these donations. Sue one of the ladies who attends sewing with me made the quilt. Sue spends a lot of her time sewing and does test sewing for a few designers. So she has lots of squares to use up. Thank you Sue.
I started the huge job of pruning the roses this afternoon. So I will be out in the garden during the day over the next few days.
