Friday Sewing or was that supposed to be cleaning.

Hello,

I can't believe it is Friday already. Aren't you glad we live now and not in the days when Friday was the day for cleaning
Last Friday at my sewing day I decided to make a table runner using my floral scraps and a few plains thrown in for good luck.

The idea was to add a border or two. Some stitchery and I would have a new table runner. It seems to have run away from me.



I am still working on it but I now think it will be a table cloth. Sunflowers and Ladybirds are ready to be appliqued onto it. I will be doing some machine embroidery to it as well. The good thing is I haven't needed to purchase anything. Finding bits and pieces of material and using up the small pieces of embroidery thread make this a great project. I am designing it as I go along,after all it did start out as a table runner.
I hope everyone has a great weekend and I will be back on Monday with "What Makes Me Happy Monday"
Enjoy your weekend.
Bev C

Your latest creation is lovely, Bev. I just don't know where all your ideas keep coming from. Don't you ever get stale, have days when you can't think of what to do next?
Love the little red lady!
