It makes my fake flowers look so pretty! HA! I can't believe how quickly these blocks came together. I felt so free!
Even the binding worked out well! I used the You Go Girl! No Snit Binding Tutorial and a little bit of my personal favorite method, The 3 P's. Press, Pin and Pray. LOL! The mitred corners could be better, but i'll take it!
Happy little table runner!
I used strips left over from my Sewing Machine Cozy Project. Since our Japanese apartment is short on space, I have to share my sewing area with the dining room. It has been a bit of challenge marrying the two spaces, especially with little spaghetti sauce hands being so close to my fabric! I have a heart attack every other day. But I think that this table runner does a nice job of blending my poor awkward dining/sewing room.
I hot glued the lids of mason jars to the bottom of this shelf and I use them to store all kinds of bright fun stuff. Currently I have zippers, tassels and embroidery floss. That handy little gizmo on the left there is a magnetic knife keep that I covered in fabric and use to store all my little metal goodies. Bias tape makers, thimbles, seam rippers, presser feet. You know, the usual suspects and so on.
I read this several times a day, especially when doing a zipper. It works most of the time. lol.
My good luck paper crane ferociously guarding my Riley Blake Ice Cream Sandwich fat quarter that I refuse to cut into.
And last but not least, some of my favorite fabric tucked neatly into this DVD shelf I got for the ridiculously cheap price of $20 at a Japanese store called Nitori. I love it. I wrapped the fabric on comic boards, it was time consuming but totally worth it.
So that's that. Time to submit my photo collage to the Flickr group and keep my fingers crossed! Hope you enjoyed the little peek into my Happy Place. :)
