It took me most of the week, but I finally finished the quilted piece that my friend Kelley sent me. I decided to make it into a table runner and with the red and white it works well for americana and I can use it for Christmas too. The photo makes it look square but it is actually 34 1/2' x 23". I used black pearl cotton and hand stitched around each block, then an X across them.
I wanted to get out today and decided to hit the local consignment store, it is like a thrift, except they have antiques and vintage goodies. I was hoping to find some nice wood items but nothing today, so I got myself a fun item that I can put on a shelf. I might decorate around it and add pieces to make a whole village or maybe a sea port scene for the bathroom shelf. The angel is something I carved years ago and the cat is something I found in a gift store. It could also be decorated for the holidays, so fun for halloween and Christmas.
