Three cheers for the red, white and blue!

 

 

 

 

Red, white & blue tablerunners    Made some patriotic tablerunners for the craft fair and they were good sellers.  Luckily I still have some of my favorite fabric left (the light background with the stars) so I can make one for myself.  🙂  decorative stars on tablerunners

 

Wine bottle carriers Single wine bottle carrier  and tortilla warmers Tortilla warmers were also very popular.  Got an order for some wine carriers, potholders and a quilt too.

It was a good day and I wasn’t even there!  Hubby did it by himself since I didn’t want to take another day off.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

Christmas Tablerunner   Made a couple of Christmas tablerunners for a friend.  She has a couple of bridal showers coming up.   I really liked them and I want to make one for myself before I use up all the fabric.  While I was working on them, I was humming Christmas songs.  I was tempted to play some — but I will wait until July.  🙂

But it is also looking a lot like summer here:

Rosebushes  My roses are blooming beautifully.  Yes, June is finally here.

And I have a “surprise” flower too.  I remember someone at work giving me this plant to put in the garden a couple years ago.  I don’t remember the name and it was just sort of there and being green.  Then today while taking a walk in my front yard I find this:

Purple spire flower  I am thinking it was called an angel plant but I’m not sure.

Got a Summer craft fair coming up at the end of June so I won’t be working on any Christmasy things for the next few weeks at least (unless I do get to make one for myself). Instead I will be working on burp cloths, wine bottle bags, casserole carriers, potholders, microwave potato bags and tortilla warmers and a few other things I have in minds.

Looks like I will be busy.  Better go get some sleep.  Good night, sleep tight — with visions of sugarplums dancing in your head.

Talk to you soon.
