The deadline for my book, Things I Love to Make was the end of February, then it stretched out another week until I said no more extensions, Monday is the day! It was very hectic here last weekend, given I still had the cover, that's front & back plus inside to do. Yes I can laugh about it now. I don't know if I could have got it done without my dear friend, Bronwyn's suggestions and encouragement.
I've been so focussed on the book this is the first opportunity to post about my table runner, Bunny Crossing, in the Easter Issue of Homespun.
I know I'm biased and I love making all my projects, but this one was a true pleasure to make. It's made from felt, involves simple felt applique and is entirely hand sewn. I find making projects without the aid of a sewing machine is somehow gentler and more relaxing, perhaps it's the slower pace and a manually worked needle doesn't make a sound. I'd like to make another one for a baby's room, appliqueing flowers in place of the eggs on the tongues.
You will find kits for the table runner here. Please note I have had to substitute the felt for the bunnies.
Wonderful tablerunner - I was so happy to see it in the last Homespun issue!
Congratulations with your book!
