Here's a shot of the table runner I made yesterday. I had the blocks made a few weeks ago and finally put it together. I love this fabric. It was a Keepsake medley of the month some time ago. It's kind of amazing what you can get out of a package of fat quarters. I used this fabric medley to help my friend Diane make a table topper last year and had enough left over to make this with the addition of only a few strips from another couple of fat quarters. Not sure what I'm doing with this but we are coming into the dreaded birthday season. My husband's birthday is May 25th as is Uncle Don's, and Dani's Mom. Cousin Dottie the 27th, mine June 10th, James June 12th, James's girlfriend Dani June 17th as is my best friend Terry's. It's a month long birthday festival. I may use this as a gift for one of those occasions. I think I'll quilt it with different size circles all over. I did this with another piece years ago and liked the way the circles looked on the very square design.
Allergies have got us all down to a certain degree. My poor husband is really suffering. In addition to his shoulder injury-he has not slept a full night in a while. He's really wiped out. This year I am having a lot bronchial problems. When I cough it sounds like I have a bad cold-I don't, it's just the seasonal ick. I may resort to an inhaler but I try to avoid it if I can. I hate that funny, dizzy, feeling you get from it. I am walking on the treadmill today-Curves tomorrow. See you later...
