I've been absent from the blog world and my sewing room for two weeks due to a 3000 mile road trip to California.

And, now I have a class reunion with a brunch at our house next weekend.  That means some serious cleaning and cooking this week -- another week without any sewing!

I couldn't stand it any longer so this afternoon I spent 40 minutes pulling out fabric for another table runner.  I was using my Mother's 1940s Franciscan Desert Rose dishes for inspiration.

 Hopefully, the drought in the sewing room will end week after next.

See you soon!

I'm joining the following:
Love Laugh Quilt for Monday Making
Cooking Up Quilts for Main Crush Monday
Quilt Story for Fabric Tuesday
Sew Fresh Quilts for Let's Bee Social Wednesday
Busy Hands Quilts for Finished or Not Friday

Those pinks and browns will make a beautiful table runner. Enjoy your brunch! Blessings, Gretchen

My grandma had desert rose dishes! Of course, they were only used for special occasions. Sadly, one of my aunts sold her collection on eBay and they were not passed down. :0(

Your fabric choices are perfect to go with the Desert Rose dishes. Enjoy the reunion. :)

The colors on your pull are lovely. I love that china pattern. I know what you mean about not being able to sew - i've been too too busy lately and it's making me super cranky! Hope you get back to it soon (and I hope I do , too!)

Gorgeous fabric choices. I've always wanted to make a pink and brown quilt. Can't wait to see it. It was nice to meet you on your return. I'll be back!

I know those plates/pattern but can't remember who must have had them. The fabrics are going to make a beautiful table runner. Too bad you can't get it done by your brunch! That was some road trip...did you hit any quilt shops?
