Fall is her ! My favorite time of year !

                                                           HAPPY FALL EVERYONE !

New Sewing Machine Cover

                                 It was time for a new sewing machine  cover !
                 So not only did I make one for myself but made a second one for a friend
                                        I chose MIMI by Chez Moi for Moda fabric

    So that is would coordinate with the valance my friend gave me in the sewing studio.
Now my friend and I will have the same valance and sewing machine covers :-D

Berries & Baskets Flimsy is a Finish

                                                   Berries & Baskets table runner

 I  Just finished  sewing it together   and I am happy to say that this UFO is a finish !  I did not make mine exactly like the pattern.
The pattern had you add another border of scrappy little blocks and it was 42" long . Way too big for my dining room table. Mine measures  18" x 38 " long .  I used a older black Thimbleberries fabric that I had in my stash for the background fabric  and some of my Jo Morton stash for the stars . Now to figure how I want to quilt this ?   I usually send my quilts out to be quilted so it is going to have to be something simple that I can handle ;-)

      Saturday morning we went for our walk & then drove over to the Farmers Market .
    I did not buy any fruit but I did purchase this Chinese lantern plant !  I have never seen one of these before and thought it was so unique !
                                               Isn't it just GORGEOUS!

Berries and Baskets UFO

                      I started this  Berries and Baskets  table runner UFO  October  2012

I decided it is time to finish this quilt so that I can enjoy it this fall.  I had completed the applique on the baskets & stems  last year and then got busy with the holidays.

While watching TV I have been working on the berries

and happy to say that I finished all of them YEAHHH !

The runner measures 42" long but I think I am going to make mine shorter

                        So I pulled out some  fabric from my stash and hope to finish this this weekend

                                         Wishing everyone a Wonderful weekend !!

It is a busy time of year for us here in the foothills of California.    It is beginning to look like fall with the leaves & acorns falling everywhere.  Hubby has been busy cutting & stacking firewood.

Last Monday we had  1 1/2" of rain  with thunder and lightning .
