I'm sewing!

It was very nice to get home to my sewingroom after our vacation!  There are so many projects I want to sew at the moment, so I started two last week... ( well one last week and one this week...)  I need some handsewing to bring to the shop with me during the day, then I can spend some time in my sewingroom in the evenings ( although I really should be outside and enjoy our lovely summer weather....)

This is from the project I started this week.  A tabletopper from the Chantilly pattern from "Sew Emma".  We have the pattern at the shop, so I wanted to make a sample for the big Quiltfestival at Gardermoen in September.  We have a booth there, so I'll be busy sewing samples for the next couple of months- I LOVE my job!!

Here is the top finished, now I need to decide how to quilt it....

I also finished a tablerunner and a small tablemat which need to be quilted.  So guess what I am doing this weekend....  At least I hope to get them basted.  
Hope your week was nice!  Thank you for stopping by!


  1. It's always nice to get back to sewing after a break. Your projects are lovely. The red accent on the table topper looks great.

  2. Lovely projects...I agree with Susan about the red accent, fabulous...

  3. Welcome Back! Lovely project! You visited Florida during the hottest part of the year! Gosh, breathing makes you sweat! lol Are you going to Fall market this year in Houston? It's their 35th anniversary. If you are, would love to meet up. Cheers!
