RUNNER KIT GIVEAWAY....COME SEE WHAT IS ON MY DESIGN FLOOR!!

Well to be honest, I am kinda down in the tooth today.

 I was suppose to be flying to Amerika Samoa but as you can see, that didn't happen.

 Life has it turns and twist and sometimes you think you have it bad until you see someone who has it worse and so for today, I am just grateful I was allowed to live another day.

 Corny I know but hey, there has to be a bright side right?

 So last night I cut out this table runner with my binding tool, this is one of Missouri Star's tutorials.

 Don't you just love Batiks? I don't know if this is how it is going to go together but it gives you an idea.
So this is what is on my design floor right now.

 I am on my husband's computer and couldn't figure out how to crop it (actually it would not allow me to). but that stack on the side is enough for another runner for one of you.

 Just leave a comment and I will post a winner in a few days. Have a great day

Barb, I am so sorry you are not going to Amerika Samoa today. I know you were excited to be going. It is funny, I use the floor all the time for my designing. Much bigger space! Have a good day.

I love batiks! I'm going to have to look up that tutorial because I have the binding tool now (and I love it!) Thanks for the giveaway! :0)

I'm so sorry your trip was cancelled/delayed. I know how you were looking forward to it. You gave me a big smile with your "design floor" post as I only have a design floor too! I don't have the wall space for a design wall and the floor works great when I need it, I just move the coffee table in the front room and push back the chairs and I can fit a queen size quilt! Hey, that's the joy of this hobby...no rules!

wackywoman said...

Oh that is a shame you couldn't make the trip Barb. Everything okay?

Sherry said...

I've seen that tutorial and was wondering if it really was as easy as she made it seem. Batiks are one type of fabric that I do not have a lot of --- love them, just need to work on whittling down the stash before I bring more into the house.

Martina said...

Such a lovely runner! So sorry for the unexpected changes, it is not easy! So sweet that you do this give away instead!
Be blessed
Martina

So sorry that your travel plans did not work out. Maybe you can fly over soon. Those batiks are just delicious! Thank you for a chance to win enough to make one!

SewCalGal said...

Ahh...but isn't it more fun staying at home and making a beautiful table runner than sitting on an airplane? Sorry, I don't want to be mean. I too am sorry you are not flying off to AS. Hopefully another time. And, I'm delighted to have you here sharing insights and inspiring.
