I hope you had a wonderful weekend, I sure had a productive one while we snuggled indoors for 3 days of rain.  Today there was enough sunshine to get out doors and take a few pics.  Here is my retro picnic table cover to match my umbrella.  I am very pleased with it considering all I had was a newspaper for a template.  Here is the link click to go to the tutorial for this really cute table center piece that I used to make my bigger version.
Everyone used to make jokes about my umbrella, well now it is right in fashion so I thought a table cover would be nice.

Rainy Day Finishes

It is 12 noon Saturday here in Saskatchewan, the fireplace is lit and we have already had 1 3/4" of rain this morning so I figure this is a good day to get some projects finished up.

Up first on the list is a little lap charity quilt I made last year.  I have been experimenting with new quilting designs and have one I am feeling quite good about using  and this little quilt seemed the right project to debut it.  Sorry for my picture quality today, I have no where in the house to take good pictures.
Here is a close up of the quilt design.  A couple little wiggles but it is coming together well.
Next I put the binding on my retro spoon and fork wall hanging that was a project over at Stash Manicure.
So now I am on my third retro picnic table cover.  I am just doing some final adjustments so it will lay flat in a circle and then some backing.  I will post it finished on the table when the sun is back shining and a link where you can make a cute circle table mat.

It is rather fun to have a day like this once in a while and no point pouting about the rain.  I 'll be back when the sunshine comes out.....they say Tuesday!!!

Hi, are you enjoying sunshine, hope so.  I received this adorable quilt from my April Doll Quilt swap partner.  I forgot to take a picture of what I sent her.

Then for May the theme was Crazy Quilting.  I am not good at this stuff and it really stressed me out but I managed to get this together for my partner.  I have to link you because again I forgot the picture.

And this is what I received from my partner.
I really love the flag and it will be on my table for our July 1 Canada Days.

Hope things are going good for you this week and we will chat again soon.
