Our local library is having a "Deck the Falls" silent auction later this week. People are designing and donating fall decorations for sale. Here are some photos of what I sent to be sold.
|Woodland themed table runner. Quotation is by Henry David Thoreau|
|The outside blocks are "string blocks" from scraps.|
|This table topper has Thanksgiving themed machine embroidered squares along with scrappy string squares.|
I also made a scrappy kitchen oven mitt which I paired with a terry towel, autumn wax melt, and a colorful cookbook. I forgot to take pictures of them and also forgot to take photos of the two tote bags made out of orphan blocks. Hope these sell and help our computer update fund at the library. We have quite a few families who use the library's computers regularly, not being able to afford or not wanting computers at home.
Three summers ago, while vacationing in the UP, Russ and I made a side trip to Paradise, Michigan - a small village on the tip of Lake Superior which just happens to have a great quilt shop. While there, I picked up the pattern GRANNY'S NAP SACK by Joyce Waterman of the Village Rooster (Missouri company).
Now three years later, I finally used the pattern. This is going to be a birthday gift for our 3 year old granddaughter.
Thanks for looking at my latest projects.
