Spooky Delights Table Runner Part Two

Spooky Delights Quilt Along

Are you ready for the fun stuff this week?  It’s time for some sewing with Spooky Delights featured on the Jolly Jabber Blog today.  You may have to scroll down but yes, you’ll find the next part of the pattern for the table runner I designed.  You can stitch to your heart’s content.  Should be just enough sewing to get you through the week and then by next Monday, Kimberly will be back with the border instructions.

Be sure and follow the group of bloggers who are making this runner.  They’ll be done with their versions before you know it.  Follow along and you could be too!  Think how great it will feel to have a Halloween project completed before the end of May!

Fat Quarter Shop’s put some more kits together.  You can find them here, but be sure and order one today.  I don’t expect them to last long.

Speaking of some Spooky Delights fun, starting on May 5th I’ll have some scrap bags of Spooky Delights on my website for you.

Bags of scraps

Moda sends us scraps and we bag them up.  Scraps like you’ve never seen before, these are the end cuts of sample yardage used for the sales reps cards.  Some pieces are large and others are narrow, it just depends on where the fabric fell in the cutting machine.   Each bag contains 2 lbs. of Spooky Delights scraps.  I’ve limited the bags to one per person because we’ve only got 19 bags.  That’s 38 lbs of scraps we’ve bagged up!  I’m giving you, my blog readers, fair warning especially if you live in California and don’t get up before the New York early birds.

Get up early on the 5th and order one!  I’ll be up with you because that’s my favorite time of day to work.  You’re hearing about it first on my blog! You’ll find the scrap bags under Fabric/Bundles

When I design a fabric line I keep at least two or more bundles from each line I design. The bundles are adding up quickly and I’m running out of room.  I’ve decided to be happy keeping just one bundle of each line for myself.  I’ve added my extra bundles for sale on my website starting  May 5th.  Lily & Will, Lily & Will II, Ooh La La, Jubilee, etc. and you’ll find them under Fabric/Bundles along with the scrap bags.

I’m clearing out clutter and getting rid of things I don’t need.  I’ve been inspired by two books, “Never Too Busy to Cure Clutter” by Erin Rooney Doland, and “Make Room For What You Love” by Melissa Michaels.   Melissa has a blog hop starting today that looks really great.  Hop on over to The Inspired Room for a visit!   I followed one of her suggestions and cleared everything off my sewing desk this weekend.  Then I put it back together, starting of course with the sewing machine.   Now I have to use it to see if it’s comfortable.  I’m keeping the gummy bear jar and you can see the tip of my light box on the far right.  Not willing to give either of those up.  There’s a long box behind the sewing machine that I bought back from my trip to Wisconsin.  I may have to think up some clever things to keep in it, like jars of extra bobbins etc.  Of course I’d have to find the perfect jars and that would mean bringing in some more clutter.  Hmm…what to do?

Clean desk

 

Now that I’ve given you enough to keep busy this week, I’ll be working on my newsletter for May 5th and getting ready for my Sunday, May 8th Splendid Sampler post!  It’s time for an applique block from Bunny Hill!

Chelsea’s over on my Facebook feed this morning telling everyone what she think about a diet.  Don’t let her talk you into any cat treats.  That’s what she’s begging for.

Back soon!

  • DeAnna Dodson - Oh, man, I SO need to declutter. Everything!

    I could get rid of 3/4 of what I have and never miss it. O.o

    Looking forward to more on the cute tablerunner! :DReplyCancel

  • Hildy - I love the table runner you’ve designed because it’s Halloween and there are cats! But first I need to finish a quilt before I start with it but lucky for me it’s a holiday on thursday and friday I don’t have to work … so long weekend and a lot of sewing time.
    Decluttering sounds great and I think it’s because it’s spring that we all think about it and part with the things we don’t need any longer. But I don’t part with my fabrics;-)
    Oh, and what is it with dogs and cat treats? I remember my neighbor dogs loved nothing more than the old cat food we put out for them. But I promise no treats for Chelsea.ReplyCancel

  • mimi'sdarlins - Hi Anne,
    You are one busy lady! I’m right with you on decluttering, concentrating on my sewing room and one other room and believe it will make a more pleasant quilting life in general when I complete the task. I’ll check out the books you mentioned, always nice to get another point of view. Your new arrangement looks great :)ReplyCancel

  • Karen Martin - Those bundles are pretty tempting! I’ve been thinking about downsizing and clearing out some things. A friend has been reading the Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, and is after me to feel the joy too–lol!ReplyCancel
