Things have been pretty slow on the sewing front/keeping up with the blogs. I've been so tired! I'll catch up soon. Its amazing when you're away from the blogs that they multiply like bunnies.

I bought some new fabric to make a table runner for my boss for a birthday present. He makes furniture and does construction work as a hobby. He's often commented on wanting something quilted so I've deamed him quilt worthy. I had a hard time picking out "manly" table runner fabric so I settled on a patriotic theme. I'm using Rachel's vintage ribbons recipe again. Its a great pattern if you're looking for a quick runner! Here's the progress so far:
I've been slowly working on The General's binding. I'm about half way done and trying not to spend too many hours sewing at a time. I'll probably take this with me to my sew in night this Friday. I need to finish this up soon- its getting to warm for my down comforter!
I've had fun perusing amazon and barnes and noble for baby sewing books. I've requested Amy Butler's Little Stitches for Little Ones and Lotta Jansdotter's Simple Sewing for Baby: 24 Easy Projects for Newborns to Toddlers. Such fun!! Does anyone have any other books suggestions?
