Lots of sewing going on.....





Well, as you can see, I finished my table runner yesterday, yeah!Its so cute, I love the flirtations line by Moda....it really brightens up my coffee table. I also spent some time working on Doe's
quilt, I finished 6 blocks, this is my first attempt at a real live quilt, other than a real prim type quilted wallhanging, in which you sure didnt have to match any thing up, and beleive me, Im sure not matching everything up!!!!! Im not sure if Im cut out for this type of quilting, where corners and crap have to be perfect, maybe thats why Im a PRIM artist,lololol......butI will give it a go, I do love the fabrics and this kind of work is very relaxing, well, it is when you dont give a crap about matching corners, lolololololol...OK all you quilters out there, dont hate me......I did go out and buy "Quilting for Dummies", and I will take a class or two, cuz ya know what, I realized this thing, if I ever finish it, needs to have binding....omg, just that word strikes fear into my heart.......remember, Im a PRIM person, I never even hemmed my Annies dress, lol. Maybe I just just stick to dolls........they love ya no matter what! Anyways, I will finish this quilt, it will NOT be perfect, but I will love it anyways!
I did manage to "almost" finish my garage yesterday, but dang, my hands got so cold I had to quit, HERE, in so cal, it was sooooo cold, I ran to make another thrift store run, and I saw the temp. sign, it said 42 degrees!!!!! In So Cal...omg...in the middle of the day!!!!!
OK, one last thing...about the drama over at Sharon's , shes having a drawing if ya can figure out what in the heck happened to her Annie......evidentally she was abducted during a party that I happened to be at.....which does NOT incriminate me in any way, I repeat, my hands never touched that Annie, no not once, BUT, I might know her where abouts, maybe a little birdie told me....but heck, Im hoping she will pay the ransom, I want more cheeseball!!!!! Anyways, if you want to find the Annie......let's just say, she did not venture far from her spot, and thats all Im gonna say on the subject!!!!!

Your quilt is going to be beautiful! Perfect corners are not the most important part :)

Your little quilts are adorable. I am a big fan of corners not matching up, just go with the flow, that prim look is great. Heck you're over there putting prairie points on and you're worried about corners matching?

Love the table runner - I am working on one with the same charms - great fabric, isn't it? Your strip quilt is going to be gorgeous. I don't think you need the "Quilting for Dummies" book - you're doing great!!
