A Busy Day.

Had a lovely breakfast with some of the swimming ladies this morning. Don't catch up often in the winter months so it was nice to sit and chat.
Then home to do the house and some washing. Was a funny day,raining, dark clouds but occasionally  the sun was shining too.
This afternoon it was lovely to sit and sew.

I made this table runner as part of the  Early Bird Christmas Crafting challenge for a special person.

I stitched the centre piece from a free pattern kindly designed by Jenny.

Then I had fun making the needle case for the Swap at The Quilting Gallery run by Michele.


I will pop it in the post for it's long journey tomorrow.

  7. I really like what you did with Jenny's pattern--making the table runner. It is very cute. I didn't do the needle swap. Yours looks so bright and happy. I am still waiting to get my mini wall hanging. I hope to get sewing again this week. Take care. Hugs.
