Well Friday 13th turned out to be a lucky day for sewing. Friday-Night-Sew-In happens during the day here at Kainga.
I used a free machine embroidery design which I have saved on my computer. Sorry can't remember who it is from, I just checked out the paperwork that comes with it and there is no name. Anyway I had purchased some owl fabric at Spotlight a while back. They put some lovely fabrics where you wait to pay of course!!!! So a owl table runner was planned for the sew-in.
|"Owl Table Runner."|
I used bright pink homespun for the backing and border. I am not sure if I will keep this or it will be a present for someone. Decisions, decisions.
Seeing it was the 13th I decided to tackle something that has been staring at me every time I enter the sewing room. After all I had started this back in either February or March and it went no further, so working on it was like tackling a mountain. It was now or never type thing.
|"Spring Garden squares ready to be sewn."|
I had ironed the squares onto the Quilter's Grid pellon and some had come apart from the pellon. So I cleared the table and put a ironing mat under neath it. I found the Rajah Pressing Cloth and counted to ten and got them all back in place.
Ten or twenty more deep breaths and went to the sewing machine. I soon worked out to get out the extension table from another sewing machine to hold it up which made is so much easier to sew.

Half an hour later my garden has shrunk. Friday evening was spent drawing and cutting the shapes to go onto the top. A project for the coming week.
Happy days and have a wonderful weekend.
