I was shopping with Sofia’s godmother today & I bought a beautiful new table runner.
It was the second time I’m somewhere without Sofia for longer than 15 minutes. Roger has a few days off work so he was with her and everything went well. I was gone for about 5 hours. Next Saturday I’m turning 24 so my dad, his wife & my stepsister are coming over to look after Sofia and Roger is taking me out for dinner. I’m both excited and nervous, it’s the first time we’re both going somewhere without her. It’s a milestone for us as leaving her home with anyone else except for her dad has been a really scary thought for me. 👻
All the sewing and quilting gifts are almost done. The only thing left is to hand sew the binding on a couple of mug rugs and a table topper. Those will give me something to do when I travel to spend time with family.
The scrappy Christmas table runner was unplanned. It was an experiment for another idea. Since the experiment was not heading in the right direction, it became a table runner.
I plan to put some new FMQ patterns in the remaining strips. I’m not sure, but maybe more decorative stitches will be added to compliment the FMQ.
