Applique Thursday

I did it, I finished the table runner before  Thanksgiving!!  All the girls are coming home this weekend and I was able to stop sewing baby things by focusing on this table runner.  I think quitting smoking was easier than quitting baby sewing :)

Here's how it looks on the table  The pattern is from Acorn Hollow - Art to Heart.  I love their patterns.

Tomorrow the Bonnie Hunter mystery Orca Bay starts, so excited!  That will keep me from sewing more baby things I'm sure.   My colors that I chose are here .  I've made a few slight adjustments, I've taken out the darkest blues and the purples that were leaning a little to close to blue.  I'm certain there will be more adjustments as the mystery continues.

I'll be linking up with Applique Thursdays and  Sarah's Whooping linky  party on Friday.
