My doodle with "Buttercup".
I think it will make a sweet baby blankie.
A doodle is just playing around with a pen or in this case it's playing with fabric.

I love Buttercup.

Table runner

Ireally love how this runner turned out.

I figured out after making 3 of them that all you need to do is cut 23 to 24 inches width of fabric and batting...press it out and then press the center seam ( you could mark it with a ruler and pen if you wanted) and add your first 2 stripes face to face and sew...press open and sew again and again until you're done. I like to sew 1/4 stitching down both sides of the seam. I love the crinkle when it comes out of the dryer!

Our Principal was thrilled to get this one. I'm glad!

My girlfriend and I have made 4 table runners
and I made this mini to give to our retiring teachers. The party is on Monday the 16th. Our school is one of 3 to be closing. Sad!

This is the pattern from the layer cake quilt along. I think it makes a great runner! I really love how a jelly roll can make a great runner too!
I love it with the batiks.

Here is some of the pottery that I have made over the last 2 summers. I first took ceramics back in the 70's when I went to ASU. I have kept up with it off and on through the years. I just love it!

mini in lilac

I have made 3 table runners for friends retiring and this will be a mini wall hanging for another friend. I just remembered yesterday one more girlfriend retiring this school year too...so one more runner to work on. I just don't know how to frame this mini with my fabrics.

My Garden

I love to garden. It is so much fun every day to go outside and see what beautiful little thing has come to live in my yard.

Happy Mother's Day! Relax and enjoy it!
