Late last week I got inspired to make this table runner. It was a pretty easy pattern to follow and if I would have thought about it a few months earlier-I think it would have been a great project for a class for a holiday project-I'm definitely going to put it on the calendar for next year. I still haven't decided if it will be a gift or become part of our holiday decor so currently it is sitting nicely folded until I make up my mind! I chose the charcoal and lime green to keep it a little more contemporary and then paired it with a fun dot pattern on the back. Unfortunately I don't have a good pic showing the quilting, but I basically quilted loosely snowflakes.

I found these kits awhile ago and for some unknown reason have been dragging my feet when it's come to ordering them. Well no more....these little guys will be in the shop soon! What do you think???? I think they're so adorable and great for beginners-plus they're from a pretty local person-she's from MN.

If you've never been to one of the Urban Garage Sales at Turner Hall you NEED to come check it out this Saturday. Great deals on many local shops and Heavy Rotation has awesome deals on t-shirts. Just in time for the holidays and a great way to support local businesses. This is our second time participating in the Sale and I am looking forward to it being a great time once again. Hopefully I won't buy too many things :) You can check out the Facebook page for it HERE

Tea towels are easy to sew, fit on a fat quarter of fabric, and make wonderful handmade gifts. So to help you out with your holiday shopping, Spoonflower is holding a two-for-one tea towel special for five days next week. Here are the details:
What: Buy two fat quarters of fabric on Spoonflower for the price of one. [Most tea towel designs fit on a fat quarter.] A fat-quarter of linen-cotton canvas (which works well for tea-towels) is normally $14, so it will cost $7 during the period of the promotion.
When: Monday, November 29 at 8am EST through Friday, December 3 at 6pm EST
How: Add two fat quarters (or any other number) and you will get half-off the regular price. The discount will be calculated automatically and the promotional price will appear in your shopping cart.
