Idea from IKEA!

A while ago my friend and I were browsing IKEA and I picked up this table runner figuring inspiration would hit.  I’ve been wanting to make a table runner for ages, I’m dying to make this one but can’t collect all the required fabrics.  Instead I decided to embroider the $4.99 IKEA one with some inspiring, warm and fuzzy words.  I chose a dark burgundy red-y colour because I liked it and thought it would look nice with our table.  Finally finished it the other day!

I thought I had run out of floss on the very last section with about 5 inches left to stitch!  I wasn’t impressed.  But then I found a little blob of floss that had slipped behind the tissue box.  I was so happy, it doesn’t take much lately.

Moda – yet another crafty addiction

Ok, shopping online is way to easy and fun.  You can find things you wouldn’t be able to get otherwise and then one day you check the mail and SURPRISE! you’ve got a little present waiting for you!  Too cool.  This week I got some fabric in the mail (not the first time that’s happened) for this child’s activity bag project. I thought it would be nice to make a little tote bag for the boys with some fun activities in it that we can . . . tote around with us. So off to ebay I went to order what I needed, and a few days later it arrived!

I’m still dying to make this stripey table runner but I’m having a terrible time finding a 1 Figgy Pudding Honey Bun and a 1 Moda White Jelly Roll. But guess there’s lots of time before Christmas.

I finally got the fabric I needed for my Valentine themed craft. I’m hoping to get it finished over the weekend, but here’s a little glimpse of the felt embroidered pieces that I’ve already finished.
