Selfish Sewing.

After the final quilting of the 'Imagine Quilt' (aka Imagination Required), I had an overwhelming urge to make something for myself.  All Christmas presents are safe, sound and ready to hand stitch, Etsy Shops are stocked until after the New Year and the dog has had her Holiday bath.  

I cannot remember when or what the last thing is that I made for me!  Do you remember the last time you made something just for you?  Maybe I think that I can make myself something any time I want...so I'll do it later.  Later was today.  

I pulled out a bunch of hand dyed fabrics and proceeded to cut a batch of 6 1/2" squares.  I'll just make a simple, quick and fun little half-square triangle table runner!



And there you have it!  (I haven't stitched the binding yet)  Simplistic beauty and it was made just for me!



I quilted simple straight lines a 1/4" from the seams.  Effective.  Easy.  Done.




And...modeling this latest Avant Garde elegant hand dyed runner is none other than the vivacious super dog model...Mary!

Take some time and do something nice for yourself today!  Or tomorrow!

  5. That's great that you had the opportunity to make something for yourself! You must be very organized to already have everything in order in your shop. Good for you!
