 I'm not wildly enthusiastic about this, but it looks like I might be doing a market on Sunday.

So that means I am going to pull out all the stops to get the next few runners finished on time.

NOT that I will necessarily sell any, but well.... better to be prepared with enough stock right?

ABOVE: This is the lady who had the hideous orange towel. It's swapped out now for a pretty one.  Notice I matched her bandana to the towel?  I thought I was clever.  No one else might,  😃😂😉😏...  but I do.  

Obviously, sewing is about all I shall be doing today, so ya might as well bugger off and do something exciting for yourself.  And tell me about it, cos it can get pretty lonely here in the sewing room, day in day out.

2.30 pm:  And well... I did say I would be sewing all day eh?
I stopped twice for visitors.

ABOVE: These two are off school today due to coughs and colds.  They got to make themselves some fruit kebabs for afternoon tea.

Once they left I came back into the sewing room and continued with my latest two runners.

ABOVE:  It really is a long, slow slog.
Lucky I enjoy it 90% of the time.
Today I'm feeling really tired.  Just a bit much going on in my head.  It's draining.

We are having Nacho mince with Nacho chips for dinner.  Should be nice.

ABOVE:   Two more done.  Time to take a break.
Got family coming for dinner... better sort that out.


  1. Does she have a giant green fish?

    1. LEAVES, you know.... that grow outta the ground type things!

  2. Have you made cats (I know you love them) or generic dogs (not breed specific)? Not the crazed black cat - but colorful patterned happy dogs and cats? Or happy funky flowers? Or birds?

    Wish I was creative.
    It’s work again for me on this wet and windy day, 3rd day in a row of crap weather.

    Hi today is one of my son's birthdays and tomorrow is mine, so we will have a family dinner s really horrid weather over here, so not much daytime fun....maybe a bit of shopping...enjoy your day..Peta

  5. With the new towel, I don't even recognize her as the one with the orange towel. You certainly have a talent for quilting.

  6. Enjoy your sewing day :-)

    These runners are really pieces of textile art - they remind me of Beryl Cook figures. Gorgeous and fun.

    Hi, I'm Ro from Italy ~ your runners really are brilliant and as Emily says remind one of Beryl Cook figures or the artist Botero. Great, very well done. Ro xx

  10. The runners are looking great. All the best.

  11. Sea shells, crabs, beverages, bucket & shovel, dolphins, umbrella, surf board, sailboat, flip flops.
