Another nice project from the Simple Gifts to Stitch. I'd like to have tried this in a solid fabric, but I didn't have anything on hand that would work. Ever since I bought this fabric, I've thought it would work great as a table runner. Mainly because I love the newsprint - I love typography. Hop over to the flickr pool to see more at Finny and Donk's Sewing Adventure.
In other news, we celebrated a little birthday recently. I now have a 7 year old. What a sweetie pie.
And what was his favorite birthday gift? The Electonic Snap Circuits. It is well worth the money if you have a child who likes technical-gadgety things. My son is so that kind of kid. He can never have too many flashlights, compasses, spy gear, magnifying glasses, etc. The plastic base has a grid with coordinates which I read off to him from the instruction manual - so it's fun for both of us.
Happy (belated) Easter!
