Still Busy Crafting

Pin It My days have been lazy but not long! Seems like when I am kept busy with crafting, I never have enough time. I am trying to get all my Christmas gifts made early so I can enjoy the summer gardening and spending time outside in the sunshine.

Here are a few projects I have finished. The first is a quilted table runner made with snowmen with a flannel backing. So cozy!

Back side.

The next project was a set of coasters. I saw these on another blog....I am sorry I don't remember which one as I read so many. So if the original author is reading this please take it as a compliment. I love making simple and practical!

I made a set of four with three different types of material. She used five different fabrics.

Do you notice how the coaster wraps around the base of the wineglass? I think this is so cool!

Here is the next table runner. This one is for me. I love this material!

Machine quilted.

Here is the backing.
Now I need to make some curtains for my Mother's closet. I will be using a lovely flowered blue pattern. Her room is painted a soft shade of blue so I think they will suit the room perfectly.
I hope everyone is enjoying their day and remember to give your loved ones a hug! :)


  1. Debbie those all turned out so nice! The coasters are a great idea, I'll have to go back and see if there is a link or, could you post the directions. Is that my tablecloth I see LOL! The table runners will be fun additions to any table. Smart to start now on gifts, I got as far as dusting the machine off!

  2. G'day Debbie ~ WOW! You really ARE getting a head wind on Christmas ... well then, you only have 341 days left. Chuckle!

    I love that flower runner & those coasters are clever.

    TYSM for the warm wishes. I'll slowly get back into the swing of things.

    Hugs, Marydon

  3. Those coasters are a great idea and i love your table runner.
    Take care

  4. Those are all just beautiful! I wish I sewed! Well, maybe it's time to start now that I have my mom's old Singer....


  5. Goodness!!! I'm not over Christmas 2009 I do like the wine coasters and table runners though, good job!

    I tried to reply to the comment you left on my blog, but you are set for "no reply blogger" so I can't...thanks for the Peppermint Twist love ;o)

  6. Very, VERY cool! Busy lady these days!

  7. Hi Debbie,
    Your coasters are just great...I love the fabric. The table runners are beautiful too. You are my Christmas gift hero!! I always say I'm going to start in January, but I never do. I think if we blog about it, it puts the pressure on to show what we've finished. Thanks for the link to that coaster tutorial too...I really appreciate it.
    Have a great weekend,


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! I love reading all of them. Have a wonderful day.
