I hope you had a wonderful weekend and a lovely Mother's Day. My celebration was a bit bittersweet. Days like this is when I miss my mom the most. But I'm grateful I still have my mother-in-law and my four legged babies really made my Mother's Day special. They gave me lots of dogie kisses, tail wags and silly faces. And instead of getting sad I tried to keep my mind busy with some sewing projects. I practiced some improv piecing; I love the look of improv quilts, but I don't know why it is more difficult for me to create a random design than a pattern. Probably it is the way mind works. Anyway, I gave it a try and crated a table runner to give to my mother-in-law for Mother's Day. I'm really happy with they way it turned out. And she said she loved it. Right after she unwrapped it she put it on her dinning table and kept showing it off to everyone :)

  5. I do really like your table runner. I love the backing fabric. It is harder for me to do improv sewing than when I have a plan. Love your doogies - they are sweet!

  7. Thinking of you Martha but I knew your babies would be giving you lots of doggie kisses. It's the best response when a present is immediately put to use and shown off to others, I think it's safe to assume your MIL loved it and I'm not surprised it's gorgeous! :)
