Christmas Through The Year and Bouncing

 christmasthroughtheyearbutton It’s link up time over at Kim’s blog for  Christmas Through The Year.  She has a wonderful giveaway.  All you have to do to be entered, is make a Christmas gift.  I have been working on a little Christmas hanging…time ticking, ticking away and it become very apparent I wasn’t going to get it done.  I went back to my old standby,003 the Ten Minute Table Runner….pattern here.  Saturday I spent the day sewing with friends, so I whipped up these three…..they really are super, duper fast!!!!

A few months back we were making Bounce in Sinta’s and Sherrie’s Schnibble’s group…..my Bounce quit Bouncing :-( ….so sad.  I decided004 I’ll start working on it Wednesdays when I sew with my friendship group.  The big stars were already done, just the bitty stars to do.  I sewed the center part on the stars and started on the top and bottom rows…..never mind I sewed the wrong size background on the left…ugh!!!!!  I will not be deterred….now I’m on a mission!

We have a wild weekend planned here.  The Dots are here Friday to Monday since their dad and mom are off to a Super Bowl weekend getaway.  So you know what that means for us P A R T Y !!!

Have a wonderful day friends!!!

LOL - I'm not a grandparent yet, but I hear they keep you young! Sounds like adventure ahead for y'all! I love those table runners - a friend made one for me a few years ago. Bounce is on my list too - I love Carrie Nelson's patterns.
