My Blah Day Turned Out Alright

Today was one of those days when I just didn't want to dress or even show my face, so I made this table runner instead.  Now I just need to sandwich it and stitch in the ditch and another Frost Fest piece is ready.  
The colors are much nicer than what are depicted here because for some reason true colors are hard to come by with some of these photo editing programs. 
Tomorrow I will make another in another color scheme using a different block, possibly do something with the 4 patch.  I was not sure how this would turn out when I began it and it was a tad confusing when I discovered I was doing the same color combinations, forgetting to turn it around to get the fractured effect. 
I confess I saw something like this on Gerri Richards Cool Cats Blog, she lives in Rothesay, New Brunswick and is a very talented Pattern Designer and simply marvelous!  She can do amazing re-configuring of other designers patterns too. Her mind seems to always be at work!  
Why not head on over to Cool Cats and visit with Gerri, you will be delighted with her blog and have an opportunity to see her work displayed there. 
I am sad to say I never had the privilege of meeting her while I lived there but the next visit back I will make certain I get over to see her for certain. 
Maybe tomorrow I might feel inclined to get my act together and get outside for some fresh air and make the rounds of errands I must do, I really didn't feel like it today and that turned into being at least productive in the "Donations" department.  Not that many days left and I still have so very much to accomplish.  Like Christmas, I know it is held on the same date each year, but always manage the last minute dash to get those gifts completed, same thing with Frost Fest, every year I find myself scrambling to get to the finish line...
Sad to say, my friend from Hong Kong leaves at the end of this week and because of the dratted cold I haven't had much time to enjoy his visit home this winter, but, I am informed that he and his beautiful wife Mei will be coming home this May for awhile, that will be such a pleasure to see her once again.  She sent me a gift which is so stunningly beautiful!  Can you see it clearly?  It is so very fragile and beautiful. 
Isn't my friend Mei beautiful?  This was taken by her DH and my friend Peter while she was in Singapore last year. 
Thank you for sharing some of your time with me this evening, I realize I am late in posting, but, I just had to finish the table runner top and wanted to share it with you.  
No matter where you live around this earth we live on, have yourself an absolutely wonderful day and if you have to remind yourself, just tell yourself you deserve it.


  1. Lovely table runner - and great accomplishment on a 'blah' day! Hope today is a good one for you!

  2. Thank you Peg, needed to accomplish something to take the blahs away, LOL.
    TODAY instead of the 4 patch I decided to make placemats to go with the runner...hope they turn out!



IT IS YOUR TURN so go ahead and tell me what you think!
