Making something with this today.
It’s not for a baby.
I know, I know, it’s spring, and this is a Christmas table runner that I machine quilted back before Christmas.
But hey, the weather thinks it should snow today, even though it was 70 degrees yesterday, so I’m just following Mother Nature’s lead.
Plus, I’m trying to catch up and show you all the quilts I have machine quilted that I have pictures of. (Next up a stunning black, white and red quilt made by my awesome friend, Kathy).
Sue made 3 of these fun table runners for her daughters for Christmas, and lucky me, I got to do some quick machine quilting on them!
Fabric is Countdown to Christmas by Sweetwater for Moda
Pattern is my free All Boxed Up table runner pattern.
My sister had a baby boy last week, but before he came we threw her a big party.
Complete with sailboats and sharks and starfish.
And lots and lots of treats.
(Yes, I picked out all the pink and purple m&ms. I’m weird like that.)
Instead of spending all my money today on a bunch of really cute stuff, I’m just going to show you all the things I would spend my money on today, if I were going to, um, spend all my money on really cute stuff. Yeah, I’m not feeling super creative with the words right now, can you tell? (All pictures from the linked sites referenced.)
First up, these absolutely darling ruffle scarves that I found over at You Love Deals. They’re only there through today, and really, for $12.50? Must. Resist.
A half yard bundle of Flea Market Fancy, because I am absolutely, irrevocably in love with Denyse Schmidt.
Then there are the spring tops. I’m loving these thin, lacey tops and camisoles. From J. Peterman
And this one, from Eddie Bauer, but I want it in Almond.
This wallet. (Those COLORS <3)
These shoes. Pink snake print? Um, yes.
This top. (Fossil is killing me.)
This skirt. Orange. Grey. Sigh.
Also, a half yard bundle of Curious Nature. It is just way too manly, rugged, and sophisticated at the same time to pass up. Thanks Parson Grey/David Butler.
I’d love to day that’s all I’m trying not to put in my shopping cart today, but I’m sure I could find something else if you give me another few seconds.
What are you wishing you could buy right now?
