Apples and Blooms

  I realize I am late  but yesterday  I    was   still working on   my sewing project....

 ... making    a table runner and  napkins   to go  with  my   apple dishes my mom gave me.. When I saw this fabric I   just loved it....

  I wanted something to  make this   dishes appropriate   in all seasons,  not just   autumn!
   Click to   continue  on!

 With   its birds, butterflies and      lovely  blue,  it  just charmed me ,    but I  knew it was  too narrow  to make  a tablecloth  so I made this runner!
A few apple blossoms   and  a   bluebird and nest  completed  my  vignette!

Finishing the napkins   helped busy my hands  as  I watched the unfolding of the news today   which is made  more poignant as  our daughter lives in  the area....  Praise God she is safe,  but   I   feel  so  intensely for that  community and  the    gamut of feelings that they must be enduring...     My prayers for  with  them for a speedy and  unremarkable   capture of  the  Boston    suspect..

 Meanwhile, here,   my   beautiful   tablescape   added   a bit of   sunshine to  a  rather dreary day!
 Now that I have my  machine  in good working order,,  I am  excited about  future  projects!!!!

Today I am sharing on
