To Do's are done

One of the two scrap table runners I completed over the weekend, this would look much better on the table if I could even find the table!!

On my to do list for the weekend was to finish the scrap Halloween table runners, make a Roman shade for Daughter #1 with matching monogrammed towels for her powder room and can tomatoes. The tomatoes didn't happen but I was able to pawn off lots to the neighbors and some friends. I will still have to can a batch by tomorrow but for now I am done, there isn't an ounce of energy left in the body. The Roman shade turned out great but I forgot to take my camera with me tonight when we hung them :( I have to go back tomorrow and do a little touch up work on some flower arrangements Daughter #1 needs me to finish if I can remember I will get a shot of them. Here is a tip, it is cheaper to purchase window treatments than to custom make them and a heck of a lot less time consuming!!! The kitchen is in total disarray from all the sewing and what not over the weekend but I could care less, tonight I am headed to bed. I would put money on the fact it will all still be there in the morning.
While we are on the sewing creating subject head over to Carla's blog to try your hand at some blog candy she is offering, everything is super cute, I have my heart set on the Eiffel tower cozie! I am thinking I need to do a little blog giveaway soon, maybe this week. You guys better figure out how to post a comment if you want to get in on the prize, I am thinking something Fallish or Halloween, need to dig around an come up with something.

AJ the Beagle is driving me crazy, I think she is ready for bed as well, she has had a hard day of rabbit hunting and squirrel chasing today.


  1. Love the runner!! SOO cute! I don't have any Halloween fabric but you inspired me to make a fall colored runner.. Just need to do the hand binding then I'm done & will post pics! :)

  2. Can't wait to see what you come up with, everthing you do is so cute
