A New Love

I'm going to tell you a secret, please don't hold it against and all of you out there with the same problem, please don't ridicule me.
It all started last Wednesday. I went into my local quilt shop (hurray for Morning Star) to look around, that was my first mistake. While there, Marsha threaten to do bodily harm to my backside if I missed another Applique night. I made some excuse about not have anything to do, or anything prepped or something to that effect. On that note, she lured me into her office to show me a potential item she was thinking about carrying (in retrospect, I should have known it was a trap!).
Can anyone guess what I was tricked into buying?
These cute little paper hezy cardboards. So that night at Appliqué club, I made all these hezies and was hooked. I Loved doing them! Marsha later said "You were an easy sell". Sheesh, this is why you shouldn't have personally relationships with quilt shop owners!
Over the weekend I had a lot of fun with those little pieces of paper and fabric. Every night I made up about 30 before bed. It was great fun and so easy to do in front of the TV.
Last night, this is what I had. A 125 pieced table runner just for the fall season. I also layered it and plan to hand quilt it. I will fit quite well in my purse and will be a great take along project.
So the moral to this story is, never to follow a quilt shop owner into their inner sanctum, there are things in there we shouldn't see!
Take care, Brandie

No way!!! I've been working on one large hexie flower for guild for a month and I'm still not done, but you have the cutest little table runner almost ready for the table in a couple of days???

I'm sure you'll have it handquilted by tomorrow...either I'm super slow or you're super fast... :o)

If it makes you feel better I am also hooked on those little hexies. You are always welcome to follow me into my inner sanctum. You absolutely amaze me with you creative expertise, and your ability at getting so much done.
Love ya!
