I Have Glimpsed Eternity........

......and it looks a lot like a table runner. I'll just let you know if there's anything remotely resembling progress, shall I?

In the meantime,
I have finished Andy's Valentine shirt--and it was a week early!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  (Almost makes up for a quilt that is now 8 years late, right?)  I even had some cool buttons in the stash that work with the general motif,
and it's been washed and is now waiting for nice weather.  Aren't we all?

While continually sewing strips together for the table runners, I had sewn pieces together for 12 new kimono ornaments, and
have 6 new ornaments to keep,
and 6 for the gift bin.  The six we're keeping are all new color schemes using fabrics I dug out for the spicy-spiral table runners, and the red fabric is now out of the stash.  It was probably only a yard to begin with and one yard doesn't make the slightest dent in the fabric stash, but it's exciting all the same.  I sometimes hesitate to use something because then it will be all gone, so it's a big step.  Just with very little yardage..................
