Not too much going on in my neck of the woods this past week.
Speaking of Woods, I want to thank everyone who gave me some really great ideas on how to decorate our cabin at Christmas in the Woods. I'll be sure to take pictures there once it is all set-up. We are actually allowed to set up the entire week before the weekend show. So this will give us plenty of time to do so. Will probably make one trip over to the show grounds before the weekend, thus making it so much easier for me the day of the show.
I emailed the show sponsor with some questions, and my booth number will NOT be 130 the day of our show. She got the 130 because there is actually a show going on right now and that is the number of the booth in this show. Guess she just told us in case we wanted to go to the present show and then we'd find our booth easier. So, the number will be changed for the Christmas in the Woods show which is the one I'm doing. Those numbers will be given to us in September. I'll share that once I know it.
There was no quilting this past week as they were having a county-wide picnic, which I didn't attend.
So I did some quilting on my own this week. I showed you the finished deer and duck last week and this week decided that since this is a Christmas show, that I need to be doing some Christmas runners.
Here are four that I just completed this week.
I simply just put a fabric border of holly and berries around each of the four panels. These first two I bound in the same fabric as the border and the backing is red/green stripes, which are really hard on the eyes, that is why I decided to use it up on the backs. Just a little quilting on the piece to give it some puff, and done.
These next two have a different binding and the back is striped again in reds only.
Now that these are done, I came across some squares that were already pre-cut that I won in a giveaway a few years back from another quilting blogger friend. These are MY colors, what I mean by that is, these colors would fit well in our home so chances are whatever I make will be coming back home with me. So any time that I post, MY colors, you know that it is something that I'm keeping. I was going to make two runners, but I don't think I'll have enough, so I'm just going to put it all into one covering and see how big it will become. I can use it under lamps for display.
Now you see what I mean by MY colors. It has different greens in the holly squares. The deep greens are my favorite. Pretty much anything with green is for me. The red, although pretty bright, matches the holly berries perfectly. Below I have a few just sitting side-by-side, but what I think I may end up doing is to put the same white that I have around the skaters, carolers above, in the middle between these 4-squares. I'm kicking it around at this point.
OK, so that is all that I'm up to this week.
