Rainy days...
Well, the rainy weather has kept us from getting the boys' room cleaned out. I have been making good use of the "free" time in the quilting room. These are a couple tablerunners that I've made for my "neighbors." They live a mile down the road, but neighbors just the same. I got a little winfall in 3" squares, from Sandy, and so they made quick work in these projects. How easy was that?
I am also working on a few different wedding quilts. Two for my son- I don't think he will be getting both of them, but I'm trying to finish them both so that I can decide what one I'll give to them. One is a dresden plate and the other is a batik sampler. The other is for a friend's son. Just a simple Jacob's ladder. The colors are a bit subtle- not like me at all, but neutral enough that they should suit anyone. Hope everyone is getting some sewing in on these rainy days!

Love the table runners!

Are you still getting lots of rain? Our rain has stopped, but now it is a kind of cold. I am getting antsy to get the garden planted. I hope it settles down soon! :~)
