Getting closer!

Hello you St. Patrick's Day Blog Hoppers! 
My give away post is here!

I've been working on my starlets again.  I am joining two together for a table runner.  I used the pieces that were in the starlets as joiners, then wanted a straight edge so I laid them down on the table and drew straight lines around them on computer paper, then cut the paper and started attaching the spartan fabric papers to the rest of what I had done.  I'm winging it!  I definitely want to do some hand quilting around the starlets so you don't forget they are there amongst the chaos going on!  I think in the end it will all come together.  I plan to attach  a binding around all of the edge, too.  The right side is all connected, working on the left side then I'll stitch them together.  As I lay it out over a stool in the family room I am thinking .... stooll cover instead?  But don't know how I would feel about people putting their FEET on my hours of hand stitching.  And what if their shoes were on....and dirty?!  So may be better to stick to the original plan.

Duke will be losing his spot on the pillow next to mine in the bed tonight.  DaddyO (my husband) comes home from a long business trip today.  That means Duke is back to sleeping at the foot of the bed.  Hope he takes it ok.

...growls at me for even suggesting it.

I'm linking up to Megan over at Canoe Ridge Creations!

Happy Monday!!
