I've Been Busy....

I've been working on these runners.  
I love how they turned out so much that I had to share some pictures with you.
I just love how perfect it looks on my dining room table but...

It's not my runner.  

I made both of these for a very sweet customer :-). The long runner was made to match a shorter one.  I think I did a pretty good job matching the colors and style of stitching.

The runners were made using a pattern by Ginger Sanchez.  This runner I made is longer than the pattern so I just stretched the pattern a little bit and added more pears and leaves.  I followed the colors used in the smaller runner. The runner looks so different then the pattern when using a light background and red pears. 

I made this bird runner to go in the same room.  
This is my own design and I used the same wools as the long runner. 

I so want to make this with a blue bird and red accents for an Americana look. 
Maybe make the bird into a cardinal standing on a holly many ideas so little time.

I think I'll spend the evening working on some hexies.  I'm not sure what I'm making but I'll just keep adding on.

Remember this quilt?  
I bought the kit at the quilt show, its a Primitive Gatherings pattern.

I was working on it last night but I couldn't finish the wool appliqué because I need to get some gold valdani thread. Only 6 leaves away from preparing this puppy to quilt.

Take care,

This is not my garden...

but I wish it was.  ha ha

I just thought I would share a few pictures from our trip to Las Vegas.

My favorite places to stop by are the atriums at the Wynn and Belagio.

This is the Wynn.  So much color all made out of flowers.

I just love these flower balls hanging from the trees. 
I wish I could have these in my yard.

This carousel is amazing!

Even the floor is beautiful.

The Belagio smelled wonderful.

This Japanese garden is so pretty and I just love the tulips.

So peaceful.

Love these parasols.

Guess where we stayed?

If you said the Flamingo you are right.
The weather was perfect!

I just had to add one dam picture.

Okay one more dam picture.  This was taken from the bridge you can see in the previous picture.

This is what I am currently working on.  
I want the larger, longer runner to match the small one.
I just love how this is looking!

I'm still working on my hexies.  
I think I want this to be a table runner or two.  
I'll just keep adding fabrics in red, black, caramel and off white 
and make
hexies until I decide.

I finished this little Buttermilk Basin picture on the plane. 
I bought the kit at the Quilt Show in Chicago.

Have a great week
Happy stitching,
