I can’t believe the end of May is upon us! I’ve spent the past two months spending time with my grandkids.
Jaxon is now 6 months old! His mom, my daughter, is a traveling nurse and I happily tag along to care for this sweet baby while she works.
After 7 weeks with Jaxon I went to Indianapolis to care for my granddaughter, Evelyn, while her parents went on an adults only vacation.
Being a grandmother is the best job ever !!
Now that I’m home to get my sewing mojo going I decided to work on UFO projects.
Fall is my favorite time of year – leaves falling and changing colors, hot apple cider, pumpkin patches and my all time favorite watching FOOTBALL games.
I love Grunge fabrics and this fall fat quarter bundle of grey, orange, gold, cream and black did not disappoint. I chose the table runner pattern Oxford by Doug Leko from his book Tabletastic.
I purchased my copy of Tabletastic from the Fat Quarter Shop.
Tabletastic includes several great table runner patterns! Oxford is a simple wonky star table runner, charm pack friendly, quick and super easy to make. If you need a quick handmade housewarming gift this pattern fits the bill perfectly.
I made this Christmas fabric basket using a pattern by Christina Camelli. I bought the pattern on Craftsy a few years back. The link for the pattern isn’t currently available.
I loved how she designed the cuff as a separate piece. The finished basket is very polished,the lining is fitted and the bottom portion sits upright nicely.
Her pattern only included one size so I did a little math and came up with a design for a taller version that can be used as a vase.
I need to tweak the pattern a little, but overall I’m happy with the vase and think it will be a great addition to our fall home décor. My husband thought I was crazy bringing out my Halloween goodies in May!
I’ve made something for myself. Next up is working on new items for the shop, can’t wait to show you what I’ve made.
Are you working on any UFO’s?
Until next time Happy Sewing!
