|The light was beautiful.
Again it was another play week with lots of little things getting done.
The funnest was a small quilt made from a pile of blocks I found at the MPQG, on the give-away table. I knew that they were a someones first attempt at a drunkards path and needed to be squared and would never quite fit together, but were fun to play with and create different patterns. It will make a great little cat bed or throw rug.

That and finishing up a few test pieces I have been working on made for a fun week of snow, recycling, and keeping warm (definitely need different cold weather clothes than what is in my wardrobe).
I was playing with the Leaf table runner pattern and made this wonderful table topper. Just have to quilt and bind it.
|A cute little candle mat
Out of the left over bits and pieces of fabric from the leaf table runner and topper came this cute little candle mat (or mug mat). A perfect size for those small spaces. It was fun to applique each of the leaves with a different thread to see the variations possible. Gold, purple, yellow and black threads. Which one do you like best??
