Lorraine's Christmas Flowers

 
Posted by PicasaMy sister wanted a Christmas table runner and as I had not made her a version of "Lorraine's Flowers" I decided to change the pattern a little and make it into a Christmas runner
We were both quite happy with the results
Have been getting a little sewing done
Made a gift for the Initial heart swap and started on a quilt for a friends new little girl
Some progress to show on that soon I hope
The applique takes so long to get ready for stitching
I do enjoy applique
Have been busy chasing after grandchildren
The 14 and 15 year olds seem to always be needing a ride some where
They live out of the town now and their Mum works , so Nan is on call
I did hear Danielle, as I walked out of the door of the hair dressers when I dropped her in for a hair cut, tell the hair dresser that her Nan was tops, so that made it all worth while

Your table runner is beautiful Illene. I know when my grandson tells me he loves me because I take care of him, it melts my heart. How lovely that your grand-daughter appreciates what you do for her. Hugs....
