It's my birthday and I decided to sew for ME, for a change. This is nothing more then a small table runner and I have had the top part done for awhile but have not been able to get it on the table. So today I just did. It is a take off on a Patrick Lose pattern and I used most of his fabrics. Then I just played with the different blue areas doing different fills and I hid something in 3 of the blue backgrounds... for my grand kids to find. I sewed in a bee, 2 dragonfly and a butterfly. Thank you for taking a look and thank you always for helping me out.... everyone that posts is great.
