I've been playing!

Wow! is all I can say. I never dreamed I would have so many entries for my Bow Tucks bag. Thank you to everyone who has entered. Also thank you and welcome to all the new followers. I have almost doubled in followers this week. I am still kind of in shock. LOL This Fall-into-Fall Quilters Giveaway has been a wonderful experience for me. It took me 4 days to get through all the giveaways LOL,  but I had fun. Thank you so much Debi for organizing this. It had to be lots of work and time consuming. I appreciate everything you did.

I have been busy quilting on Bob's quilt. I am about half done on the third border side. Kind of feeling the pressure to get this done. I really need to have either Ivan's or Jeremy's done also by the end of this month. I quilted till my fingers were too sore to do anymore. LOL So I took most of yesterday off to play on my sewing machine. I made this cute little table runner. I love it. Gudrun designed it. Isn't it adorable?
Here is another picture of it. I really had fun with this. It is quilt as you go. I used my scraps and some scraps from Cyndi.  The only thing I bought was the black border. I saw that in Walmart last week and thought it was so cute. So glad I got it.
Very seldom do I do a project that is all with the machine, but this one was. I still have to do some machine applique around the candy corn, but that shouldn't take long. Here is the back. Not very exciting, but I usually show the backs of my projects.
If you look at the top of the first picture, you will see my helper. Callie just can't let me work on something without her imput. LOL Doesn't she look interested in this picture. (grin) She has been busy today chasing poor Buddy around the house. Thankfully, her hiss is worse than her bite, but he doesn't know that. LOL
 I bought my Klutz glove Friday. I was totally shocked to see that it cost $24.99 at JoAnn's. Wow! That is for one glove! I was really grateful that I had a 50% off coupon. I even used the glove yesterday when I did the cutting on the little table topper. My husband asked last night if I used it. I figured he would. (grin) It is kind of a pain to put on and take off, but I promised him I would use it. I guess I will get used to it. Does this look like almost $25 to you?
Sorry I haven't commented on many blogs this week. We have had nice weather, so I have been working outside a lot. Also trying to stay off the computer a little. I will have plenty of time for the computer this winter. (grin)  If you haven't visited Gudrun site and the Fall-O-Ween blog hop, you really should. These ladies have shared some cute, cute designs on their blogs. Well, I need to get back to work on something. Thank you so much for visiting. Have a wonderful day.

Candy corn is one of my favorite things to decorate with so I adore your table runner! Thanks for the link, maybe I will get to make my own. *grin*

Your kitty is adorable, I just love her color & markings and her fur looks so soft.

And wow at the price of that glove... thank goodness you had a coupon!

What pretties you are creating, Winona ... & your helper looks all tuckered out from the work, chuckle.
Have a great weekend.

I love that candy corn runner!!! Glad you got the glove but that IS a bit pricey!!!

Irina said...

It's a really nice table runner! I wonder why I never noticed any candy corn the 2 times I've visited San Francisco during Halloween... maybe it's not that popular there??? it's all I see at the moment in most of the blogs and I'm so curious about it's taste! I'll have to go to the States again (not a problem!)
My cat Sooty is exactly the same! if they're were persons they would definitely be quilters!LOL

Karen said...

The candy corn runner is very nice. Makes me want to head to the grocery store and buy some of the candy corn. Fall is about the only time I ever eat it. Just seems appropriate.

Your table runner is really cute. Bob would love it because he can hardly wait for Halloween and eating bags of candy corns LOL. Good thing you had that coupon or your hubby would be upset you were cutting without it :0)
