Nordic Star Table Runner

 I just finished sewing a table runner
as a sample for
Mad B's Quilt and Sew
Nordic Star
From the book
On The Run Again
by Heather Mulder Peterson
 3 Nordic Stars
in happy Christmas colors:
Owner MaDonna requested that I use:
 Chalkboard Snowman (Studio E. Fabrics)
Warm Wishes (by Red Rooster)
for the fabrics
I even braved it,
and used the beautiful Bernina Sewing machines
available in the store to machine quilt the table runner
myself  :)

Top Soccer Shoot Out Ever

Mr. Cactus received two degrees from Brigham Young University.
That is one reason I love to watch 
Our Son-In-Law was a top Soccer player.
Now our Grandchildren, even at their young ages, are playing soccer too.
Top Soccer Shoot Out Ever
Scott Sterling, Face of Steel
Make sure to especially watch the very last play.

Sew Kind of Wonderful Poinsettia Table Runner

 If you live here in the Phoenix Metro
we have a wonderful opportunity coming up
December 5th
Helen Robinson
Sew Kind of Wonderful 
fame will be teaching a class
on their
Poinsettia Table Runner 
Perfect project for the holidays.
Helen lives here in the area
and we feel privileged to 
have her teach at the store.
I heard that Sew Kind of Wonderful
really rocked recently at 
Pacific International and Houston
as they demoed their ruler and patterns.
 Kathy Pope 
put together this store sample
and she said the ruler
made the curves very easy to do.
I will be working on the day of
Helen's class and I'm excited to learn her techniques.

Do You Know How To Use A Typewriter?

I know this will date me,
but, did any of you own a typewriter?
Do you know what they are?
Do you know how they work?
I never would have guessed that 
Typewriter quilt fabric
 could possibly be a mystery 
to the next generation.
Kids React To Typewriters
actually made me feel a little better.
This will probably be my one and only opportunity
to actually know more about 
how to use a device
than they do.
