I finally get share some projects!

I finally get to share some projects I was working on! I couldn't share before now because they were presents for some friends of mine, and I didn't want them to see them on my blog! The table runner below and one of these little fall wall hangings went to Betty (the other one is for me!). It has arrived safely to her home and finding a lovely spot on her hutch!

This pic shows the quilting a bit better. And I made the hangers with antique bobbins and some craft wire! I had made a table runner like this for myself back in Sept 2005. I had just enough plaid left for Betty's and I found a really cool dyed like cordoroy for hers. Doesn't it just say fall!

And here is a picture of Betty and I in Paducah back in the spring of 2006 (standing in the entry way to the flat fold room at Hancocks)!! From left to right: Dawn, Laura and Betty.

Dawn, the turkeys and wallhangings are just wonderful! Are they commercial patterns? If so, could you share the names and makers?

Laura said...

How cute! And I love the bobbin holders, what a neat idea! And you were just telling me how you haven't been able to get anything done.

A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E pieces, Dawn!!! Is that corduroy a Wendy Richardson? I've got one of her hand dyed wide wale corduroys in my "collection." Yummy stuff.
