The challenge this week was not what Christmas project to make, but to discover how the puppy dog was escaping from his backyard.
He belongs to my daughter, lives next door and is a regular visitor at my place. He loves being around people and was not happy last Friday when he found himself all alone for a day. His escape route was daring and ingenious, clambering through what looked like an impenetrable mass of banksia rose and over the low section of the fence. Once in the front yard it was easy to slide under the fence into my front yard and out to the street. Then it was off to attract the attention of the neighbours two doors up for a play date with his mate, treats, cuddles and a comfy spot to snooze. I only worked it out when he showed me. It's a huge relief to know he is secure in his back yard again!
This week I decided to make a little table runner.
It's the Checkerboard Star Runner and its the perfect size for the bell tree I found at Bed n Bath.
It's not quite finished, it needs a little more quilting.
The pattern, Festive Star Runners, normally $10, is on sale for $8.00 until sold out.
The pattern and three fabrics to make the top including the binding is $19.
You'll find them here.
The Albury Wodonga Doll, Bear & Hobby Show is on this weekend.
See you there.
