WIP: "All I Want To Do..."

Today I finally swiped my husband's IPOD, we (Nugette and I) have been listening to some music on my computer, but Nugette starts moving around, especially to the European dance music.  I love the feel of her moving, but yesterday she about drove me batty and triggered the very weird Braxton Hicks Contractions I've heard so much about.  I think I am going to listen to some encouraging music and maybe put on an Audiobook while I get moving on my list of things to do.
I told you that I would post a picture of one of my projects this week.  This is a table runner someone asked me to make for their friend; a few days ago while ironing fabric(yet again) I literally saw the fabrics I should pick right before me!  It was definitely a pick-me-up since I feel I am way too behind in what I want to accomplish before Nugette is born in February-ish.  What do you think of the colors?  The pattern is one I saw in Fall 2011 Quilts and More called Holiday Happenings (plans are underway to use this pattern with traditional holiday colors as well).  What still needs to be done is:  need to add the border & corner blocks, get it sandwiched,  quilted and bound; all of which I am still hoping to do today.  There is a lot of cutting, ironing and sewing taking place here in my craft room this week.  Some of the projects I have been working on I simply forgot to take pictures during the process so you will be getting a few of them towards the end.


  1. I think it is beautiful!!!

  2. One of the ideas I've seen with table runners is to put a different motif on the back - so that all you need to do is flip it over to go say from Halloween to Thanksgiving, or Christmas to winter (or New Years), Spring and Easter - you get the drift. -j-

  3. J, I thought about doing that with my baby's room for her wall hanging, just to switch up what she sees on the wall. I will have to think about doing that for a table runner. Thanks for the idea!


I love to hear from my readers!
