Quilting Report

Rare is the week when I can balance triathlon and crafting! I'm so excited that I finally finished my Yo Yo Sisterhood table runner! I started the applique part over a year ago when I was a shut-in with my broken leg, but couldn't get around well enough to use a sewing machine. And this was a perfect project to FINALLY try my sewing machine out for it's quilting capacity. Very fun! And it came out pretty well.

And from the garden...I've been collecting old plates from thrift shops and yard sales for about a year and finally started my "plate border" around the chicken and duck house to make a border garden around it. It's really really cute. Now I just need more plates.


  1. This looks so wonderful with the silver markers! I saw a border of empty wine bottles at the Sonoma County Fair and I'd love to do that. We have plenty of empty wine bottles!

  2. Oops! Forgot to say how much I LOVE your table runner! The flowers are wonderful!!!
