Goodnight and I have returned from Smalltownville. Whenever I’m there, I stop in some store on Main Street and controbute to the local economy, so to speak: the bakery, the drug store, the thrift shop, the grocery store, and on our most recent excursion, the quilt shop.
I am not a quilter and don’t claim to be one, but I always like to take a peek and fabrics. Goodnight was interested in doing some sewing this summer, so we both wen into the quilt shop to see what was there. It’s a small shop, but for its size, it holds enough bolts of fabric to take some time browsing.
It didn’t take me long to spot a fabric that had some birds on it. I bought just enough to make a center runner for my table.
I took the time yesterday to get most of the table runner constructed. In the photo below, I have some other items that I purchased from the thrift shop. I decided I wanted som stemware appropriate for serving (virgin) rhubarb daiquiris. The glasses I found were even better than I had hoped for before I went into the shop!
The sections really represent four seasons as the background for the birds, but I found a backing fabric that had pine needles on it that I liked.
The ends of the table runner have not been sewn shut yet. I am knitting a bit of trim to add first.
The trim will take longer for me to complete than the sewing did, but there’s really no timetable on this phase of ‘nesting’ that I’m currently in right now.
