    I've been working at my job so hard lately, and when I'm not doing that I'm cleaning and doing laundry! This weekend I rebelled! Saturday I finished up my black and white blocks, and today I made this table runner from start to finish! It's from Moda Bake Shop using a pack of charm squares, and it went together easily!

    That's pretty!
    Now, don't you feel better sewing than cleaning?
    My saying is.....the cleaning will ALWAYS be there when I'm done sewing. Sewing is more important because it relieves stress and trying to keep a neat and tidy house is stressful. So....sew, sew and sew some more to relieve ALL that stress!!!

    So pretty. Don't call it rebellion, call it therapy. Great job.

    It sounds to me that you have your priorities straight and are probably a very well-rounded personality ...
    Very fun table runner!
    Thanks for sharing!

    Love your table runner. As a matter of fact, I saw it and had planned on making it but I forgot the website. Do you still have the website handy?
    I love the fabrics that you used for yours. Great job.

    Your weekend produced wonderful results! I only do laundry when I need to wash a quilt! :roll: Disposable clothes would be so cool.

    Harmony, a MUCH more productive weekend than boring old housework! I love it! ( Wildflower Serenade? I've got an apple core wallhinging from that charm pack that hangs over our bed!)

    I love your table runner and just think it will help hide the dust :wink:
    Just think a hundred years from now your table runner will probably still be around for people to admire and they won't know if your house was dirty or not and won't care. :D

    I don't think you blew your weekend either -- you were just keeping your sanity! There is always house cleaning to do -- and if you do it this week, everyone expects you to clean next week too and on and on and on :wink:

    Beautiful table runner. You should take time for yourself for often!

    So glad you had a fun sewing day. It is almost as good as spa day, don't you think?
