I am tickled pink — I managed to complete my ZigZag Table Runner within the allotted timeframe for the sew-along over at StumblesandStitches. Several mornings over the past week, with the deadline looming near, I fit in a few minutes at the cutting table before the demands of the day could take hold, just like I used to when I sewed my own blouses, pants, and jackets. (That’s eons ago, when I lived in the city and worked as a typesetter. ) What a joyous feeling to admire each day’s progress, confident I might meet the April 19th deadline.
To be honest, I was kind of shocked at the intense color explosion created with the combination of the Susan Sargent bird print with the polka dots and green Indonesian batik. Too much? I’m still not sure, but do like the splash and zing it all makes on the dining room table. As you can see, Corabelle wanted ‘in’ on the project, too.
