Tablerunner, more cat pics & hangman game
This table runner was a mystery project made at a quilt camp at least three years ago. It took place in October. I remember the leaves were the glorious colors of autumn and fell softly to the ground carpeting the area while we stitched inside. We had our very own gourmet cook who filled our plates with the most delicious food. Each dinner had a theme, also, with the table decorated accordingly. The girls took a picture of me the last day there trying to button the jeans that I wore on the first day. There was a considerable gap between the button and the buttonhole proving that I was well-fed during my stay. The runner was finally machine quilted and bound yesterday. The colors in the picture aren't really true, but I am happy with the results. In the background you can see parts of the ironing board that I set up last night in order to press some backings. Jasper heard it and as soon as the iron and fabric were off, he was on.
Speaking of Jasper again, (and I hope you aren't tired of him) last night he was into chasing bugs. It didn't matter that he needed to climb up the curtain to have a chance at capturing his prey. Now Annie told me she is feeling deprived that Jasper gets so much time in my blog. Here is a picture of her 'helping' Jim sort some boxes of old lps he purchased at an estate sale, while Jasper circles the area.
If you aren't already spending way too much time on the computer, here's a Halloween Hangman game for those nights when you just can't get to sleep. You have those, too, I'm guessing. If apples are on your mind, you might try to catch some with this game.
