What's on the line?


It's a re-run "on the line" today. I figure if Jay Leno can do re-runs, so can I.  :-)
I've been very busy packaging the fabrics from last week's giveaways and doing Christmas stuff and cleaning.  I've been so busy, that yesterday afternoon, I had to take a nap and I never got out to the line to take a photo.  This is not a large quilt, but I posted the photo large so you can see the detail of the little quilt which measures about 15" square. It was about this time last year that I posted this quilt. Just go here to learn how you can make the little quilt.
I want to thank all of you for the awesome comments during last weeks giveaway days. Jacquelynne's fabrics are very popular. There is still time to enter each giveaway. Winning names will be drawn Tuesday evening, November 28th at about 8:00 p.m. CST.
 
Your advice on my border problem for my tabletopper was very helpful. I almost left the corner as it was but then I kept changing my mind. I didn't like the corners as they were but I wasn't crazy about the green squares either. And then, I took the border fabric and laid it at the corner.........
I cut a small piece, folded over the edge, and pinned it across the corner....
then stitched it in place and I like the way it looks. Now I need to decided if I will add more poinsettia fabric or another border strip.  I'll share again when I make that decision.  :-)
On another subject.................
I thought I'd share that I have been reading a really good book recently. Have enjoyed a chapter every night before bed and was almost done.......when............ Kaiser the Wonder Beagle seemed to think there was nutritional value in my book and ripped it to shreds and then ate almost all the cover............
 
Oh, yes, he did and oh, yes, I was not happy! Fortunately, he ripped up the first 68 pages and not the last pages in the book. I have just one more chapter in the book and will finish it tonight. It's called "Ciao Bella" and is a story of a young woman and soldier in Italy in 1945. The author's are Gina Buonaguro and Janice Kirk. I bought the book at the Dollar Tree store for just ........ one dollar.  It was a great buy! I was planning on sharing it with my daughter so guess I'll check the Dollar Tree and buy a second copy. Kaiser took lots of outside reading breaks today. ;-)  I'd like to think he won't do this again but he seems to be going through a "terrible two's" stage. However, he's "four times two"!  I'm beginning to think I need a baby gate to keep him out of my stuff. I hate keeping the doors shut to every room just to keep him out of trouble. Closed doors in the winter months, mean cold bedrooms.  :-(
 
That's all for this Monday. Hope your week is off to a good start! I'm going to be doing some more Christmas decorating. Love, love, love this time of year!

Good morning. Well I love your 're-run' picture.What a super idea and it makes a very pretty quilt. The poinsettia fabrics are gorgeous. I do like the way you are treating the corner on your table topper too. Shame about the book - I am going to look out for it. Have a good wekk.

I love the re-run quilt! Sorry about the doggie problem. We have a dog and 2 cats. Our cats are usually the ones in trouble here, probably because the dog is 14 years old. lol

Love that doily quilt. I had a dog chew part of my High School annual one time. It still has the chewed part. Same dog also chewed a hole in the front of a lap quilt my father had bought me (Dutch doll boys), but, I still have and use that quilt. Both remind me of that dog. My hubby (he was just my boyfriend then) gave the dog an old sock with a knot tied in it, and the dog never chewed on my stuff again after that.

Oh dear....bad doggie! Glad he chewed up the beginning of the book AND that it wasn't a library or borrowed book.

Love that pretty doily quilt.

Your corner solution is so perfect! Can't imagine it any other way....funny when that happens!!! Wow, somebody was in need of some fiber!!!! Glad the final pages were untouched! Hugs, D

Love that quilt. The center is beautiful.
Kaiser is entering a second puppy phase. Hopefully he will out grow it. LOL

Clever way to fix the corner; I wouldn't have thought of that.
Dogs are troublesome sometimes, but I think that's part of the reason we love them- they really are like children!
