Winter meets spring.

First of all, let me say thank you to all of you after I posted about Henning... It warms my heart to think of all your prayers and thoughts.

I have been sewing a lot for the last few weeks, it helps me get my mind on to something else, and I really need that.

This is a French press warmer, with matching mini quilt for a bread basket. I gave this to my aunt for her birthday.

Next, here is my spring table runner! I went out in the snow to take some pictures, lighting is great outside today.
The runner was made from scraps after a lap quilt that I have been sewing (not finished yet), and I embellished it with a fabric/button flower.
I practiced freemotion quilting on this, it's been a while since the last time I did that.
It got kind of cute and very romantic!

Here is a detail of the flower.

And at last, I WON!!!
Jamie at Modified Mix had a giveaway a while ago, and I won this cham pack of Make Life from Moda. I love it! The fabrics are so beautiful and fun. She also included some hand cream, wich I tried and it is great. I use a lot of hand cream in the winter, so that was really a great addition to the charm pack. Thank you so much Jamie! Big hugs to you:-)

So, now it's back to the sewing room for some more finishing of different projects. I have a BIG box of UFO's that needs to be done. I started crocheting an afghan as well, but I need more yarn.
Happy Sunday to everyone!

You are very welcome! I can't wait to see what you make! Love your table runner! Nice quilting. I've never tried free motion before, but I just got a darning foot to try. Hope you have a great week!
