Just posting a little piece of sewing I have been working on ..
As you know I love the UK magazines and this pic was in Homes and Antiques this past month..
There were several patchwork projects..
A tablecloth, pillow runner and a throw..
This is their tablecloth..
There is a circle for the plate and a pocket for the cutlery..
I decided to do my own version..
I like their's better.
After I got to making mine I realized that I should have used heavier fabrics like they did..
And I should have made bigger patches instead of the smaller ones..
As I worked I realized that this was going to be a just a first sample..
You know to work out the kinks so I did a few things that I won't do in the next one..
Like change my thread colors.. grin..
Oh well.. it is fine for Terry and I..
I did this one with four places but you could do 2 runners, eh?
It was fun and I think I would like to try the pillow..
It had a bird on the patchwork..
What did you girls do today?
I put out another big line of clothes and they dried fine even though it is a bit cooler today..
Tomorrow is the Lord's Day and I made a big roaster of ribs as I think we are having some sweet company after church..
I also made an apple pie that you make in a frying pan..
Terry and I both decided that the birds would like it better then we would.. Yuk...
No wonder the cookbook was only $5.00 at Chapters..
I will give it another try before I completely give up on it..
I also had a wonderful chat on the phone with a dear old friend..
We had not connected for ages but it was just like yesterday that we had chatted and laughed..
Well, take care my friends..
Hope you get to the house of the Lord tomorrow..
We are looking forward to it..
