Sea Canyon Table Runner is a beautiful new table runner that I recently finished and gifted to a sweet friend. It looks perfect in her living room. I used three 9 inch blocks and then added a sashing and a border. This would be perfect for any time of year.
This month all of the Island Batik Ambassadors are making table runners with the new collections and I chose to use the Sea Canyon collection. You can find Island Batik fabrics at Hancock’s of Paducah.
I drew a spine all the way around the table runner and then did some free motion feathers in the border. I used a Aurifil thread (2315) in a color that matched the fabric I used for the binding.
Here is a closeup of the feather quilting. I really need to start doing more of it because once I get going…..I really enjoy doing it.
I just used a good quality permanent press muslin on the back.
I also used the Sea Canyon collection by Island Batik for the Board Game quilt that was in Quiltmaker. I talked more about it in my Board Game post and also this one where I was quilting it. The block used in the tablerunner was also used in Board Game.
Quiltmaker Magazine September/October 2016Do you like my little pelican? He was a gift from the cutest little neighbor boy.
This is little Sadie, a new addition to our family. Builder Bob found her last week. I have never, ever seen a dog so covered in fleas as she was! He thought she was a puppy but looking at her teeth, I knew she was an older dog. I ran to the store and bought some flea shampoo, my neighbor gave us some food as she has Yorkies and Sadie spent her first night with us.
The next day we took her to the vet so we could get rid of her fleas and get her checked out. We found out she is approximately 7 years old, has had at least one litter and has some problems. She was given NexGard which has completely eliminated the fleas and Sentinel for worms. We had her tested and she doesn’t have Heartworms.
Two of her front teeth are very loose and need to come out, she is also intact and has 6-8 mammary tumors so surgery is needed to remove them, spay her, remove the front teeth and also some growths on her skin.
The vet checked right away for a microchip but didn’t find one. Several weeks ago there was another stray dropped off in our little town and ended up getting hit and killed on the highway before someone could help her. We didn’t want that to happen to Sadie. She seems to be a mix of Papillon and either Terrier or Poodle and is very smart. She adores Builder Bob and wants to be near him all the time. Surprisingly, she seems to like men more than women. We have both noticed that she will cower when we reach down to pick her up, she does better if we bend down first.
I know we should probably look harder for her owner but……someone didn’t take very good care of her. Sadie will going in for surgery next week and we will be able to get everything done at the same time, there will be a biopsy done to make sure none of the tumors are cancerous. Can you tell we are already in love with this little cutie?
