It's amazing what one can achieve in an afternoon. I had a completed Sashiko piece sitting in the "to finish" drawer ready to make into a table runner. The last time I took it out of the drawer I couldn't find the Japanese fabric I had stashed somewhere for this table runner so I put it back and forgot about it until last week. Thank goodness I tidied up my sewing room because I found that fabric amongst my other Japanese fabrics . So, yesterday afternoon I completed it! Yey! I didn't have enough fabric for the back as well as the border so I used another Japanese fabric for the backing which just happens to be owls.

A peek of the back.
After this finish I thought I would start sewing some burp cloths for my future grandchild. I made one and was going to make 5 more today but I went shopping for a pram instead. I might get the rest made tomorrow. I bought a towel instead of towelling because the towelling was $44 a metre!
My most recent purchase included a Christmas stitchery for a hexie table topper. I have completed stitching it and am now auditioning fabrics for the borders. Hmmm, think I need to go fabric shopping again.
I completed the October stitchery for a mini but when I ironed it grunge came out of the iron! GRrrrrr. Not happy! Don't know what to do now. I might have to cut out the circle and applique it to a background. Any ideas?
Plans to get out in the garden have not yet happened due to the cold and rain.
Keep warm, keep well, and keep smiling.
