House Table Runner

I've been thinking about a house-themed table runner for the hall stand in the entrance for a little while . . the thought just wandered around in my head - knowing one day a bolt would strike!  (so to speak) . . .and it did - chatting to my bestie about something else and bingo!   I remembered some blocks I stitched - a little while back...I looked back on my blog but couldn't find any reference to them . . .

But when I pulled out the box they were in - I saw a treasured piece of paper - 

So, I stitched these in 2013...then along the way, I collected some fabrics - from bestie!

I put 5 of them into a runner.

I will make a little hanging quilt from the 6th one - but need to wait until I have bought a mini quilt stand before I make it.

Great to have an old UFO done & dusted.

FNSI - March

Time to gather with cyber friends again.

I didn't start off with crochet for a change - I spent a bit of time threading in some ends on a runner - then the AFL started!  No further temptation was needed - a quick exit and onto the machine

I did some more quilting on the runner - then added the binding.

I am off on a retreat next weekend, so I cut the squares I plan on working on then.  Then I sourced some fabrics for cornerstones and packed it all away in a "kit".
Then I got out the pencil & paper to work out how big I want the sashings to be . . .I'll keep pondering that over the week.

Lovely to catch up with everyone via facebook - hope you had a productive night!
Thanks for organising us Wendy - despite your very busy schedule!

There are a few friends (4) who are having new additions to the family - one happened to "like" the last taggie I made, so I offered to make her one, then there were a few more . . .and it's easier to make several at once rather than individually,
So here are the four.  Three are very similar as I was trying to use what I have for now . . .

FNWF - March

Another fun night gathered with Cheryll & cyber friends - sewing or crafting of some sort.

A crochet block finished
I did my RSC for March - yellow/gold was the theme - such a happy colour!

I also prepped three taggies which I hope to finish over the weekend.

Pop over here to see what others got up to!
Thanks Cheryll for organising - thanks everyone for the company!
