International Get Some Kona Solid Fabric In The Mail Day!

 Yesterday was International Get Some Kona Solid Fabric In The Mail Day. To celebrate I recieved this stack in the mail! Two very generous bits and pieces scrap bags from Pink Chalk. Great colour selection. Colours I wouldn't normally choose but are good to have a little 30cm bit in the stash, just in case..... and some half yard cuts down the bottom from the always generous sister of mine. Thanks Ad! I hope you all had a fantastic International Get Some Kona Solid Fabric In The Mail Day as well!

 It's the second week of school holidays here and the sewing has commenced in seriousness yesterday! You know how sometimes it is easier just to finish a project rather than fold it back up and put it away? That has happened with this Christmas tablerunner. I had about 12 of these blocks made and the fabric cut ready to go for the rest, so it was just a matter of sewing them. Sew, sew, sew, let the kids get their own lunch, sew, sew, sew.... rummage amungst the new pile of fabric for the backing and binding....

.... and wolah! All ready to hand sew in place. Next table runner please!
