Welcome to my blog. I hope that you enjoy it. My goal is to keep everyone posted as to my sewing and things that will be sold in my store at http://www.idahoatheart.etsy.com/.
I'll also blog about other things that interest me like my family, cooking (sharing receipes), things I learn along the way, etc. Hope you all enjoy.

Recent projects - Snowman Table Runners


Here are the two latest projects that I have been working on.  I finished them today.  They are snowman table runners.  The top one is 5"x5" squares sewn three across and 11 long.  It has white backing and a blue binding.  The second one has squares and triangles and borders.  It has blue backing and white binding.  They both are made with blue, grey, white, and the snowman print material. 
They are both quilted and I have done my free motion stitching on both of them.  The binding is machine sewn with stitches that somewhat resemble snowflakes.

I had made a few of snowman table runners over the past year and have gifted some and sold one and had a request to make more.  So I pulled out my snowman material and started making more.  I was just going to make one and decided to make two.  I keep thinking about taking pictures of the different processes but then I get into sewing and forget until I'm done so you just get pictures of the finished projects.

I hope that you have all had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend and that you all have a wonderful Christmas.  We have all of December to be thinking about Christmas and what it really means.  I love decorations because they remind me what time of year it is and helps remind me also that Christmas isn't just one day a year but that I can be thinking about it for a while.
