Think Spring!

I was unable to get a lot done, I have spent this whole week in the hospital with my daughter, she had a cold + asthmas = the "Perfect Storm" So we spent a couple days in the hospital because she needed the oxygen, but while in there I was able to complete the binding around this fabulous table runner. Oh and she is doing very well now! This is made from the Verna charm pack by Kate Spain. Moda fabrics are my favorite...and I mixed some linen in it as well. This is my own pattern I made up by combining the squares and just randomly sewing them together.

Doesn't it just get you in the mood for spring?

Well, thanks for looking, make sure to check out the other show n tells on Amylouwho's blog.

Here is a close up of my Valentine Runner, pretty simple too! just sewn together a bunch of strips.

  7. Love it! Kate Spain is quite easily my newest favorite fabric designer :) Verna is TDF and her new upcoming fabrics? Yummmmm!!

    Anyhow, the runner is fab, and the linen is just the right touch I think :)

  9. The runner is lovely. So sorry to hear about your daughter, glad she is better now. My son has the same trouble and hospital visits are the worst. He is on a medical trial with the hospital at the moment and has been so much better, but I really feel for you. ((((hugs))))
