More practice with feathers....Finished this wall hanging

Practice practice practice.   still working on getting better with my feathers.
I still have to cheat and draw them on first but slowly working on making them with out having to see them.

Made this wall hanging for a friend.

Reusable duster

I ran out of dusters so I decided to make my own.
I started with 4 pieces of fleece (4 1/2 inches by 7 inches)
I think the pictures tell what I did














I also  made a yellow one!

Table Runner

I have never made a table runner.  I see them on all the blogs and have been wanting to make one.   A couple of weeks ago a friend came over to sew with me and she had these aqua colored scraps.  Just enough to do two Dresden plate panels. I thought it would make a nice table runner.
I had to go to Hancock to pick up 3 extra matching fat quarters.
I put it together and decided it would be a good project to practice doing feathers.
This is what I ended up with.

This is the front.....

































This is how the back looks...

While watching Downton .........

On Thursday I watched the first 3 episodes of Season 5 of Downton Abby in my sewing room.  As I watched I created this little ( size 2) outfit for a friend's grand daughter.  I love sewing for children.




The shorts are reversible.
