An Autumn Table Runner

This is what I did this weekend. The quilt block design is from the Jelly Roll Quilts book.


It's for my mom. Lots of autumn-y colors to go with the gourds she picked at our farm. Last year's decorative gourds got tossed next to fence by a compost pile (We're insanely well organized, you see) and they kind of decomposed, and dropped their seeds, and grew these. Of course we got tons of these inedible gourds while the zucchini were attacked by borers, the eggplants hated the cold, and so on.


And a teensy peek at a christmas present that I finished- I know I'm going to have NO sewing time this November, so I've started christmas sewing already. I'm being a realist... rather unlike my usual method.

Finally, I had to share this site that I found through another blog.

A whole site devoted to A cup bras. Oooooh. You have no idea how hard it is to find cute bras that actually fit! Seriously, I have to go to the kids department in stores to buy bras usually, unless I want to spend $$$ at Nordstrom- and even there the selection is rather iffy. This site carries non-underwire styles (and underwired too, although I still can't fathom why you need one in a true A or smaller bra!), in really, really gorgeous styles. I bought two, and they came this week, and I love them. Sigh. I've kept myself so far from ordering more, but it's hard. ;-)

That table runner is so gorgeous - I want one just like it! Actually, I made one, too - just hemmed a piece of pumpkin fabric - and now I'm really disappointed. One of these days I'll start quilting. And you've made me do it! :)

I love the colors in the table runner. Since I've started to quilt, I'm very interested in quick projects. Thanks for posting!

I love table runners. Doesn't adding fall colors in the home cozy? I love the colors!

So nice! I have to pinch myself as a reminder that it is indeed Fall.
