Just for Me

I don't do things just for me very often
it's usually for my kids, my mom,
grandkids or a customer
Mr. Sugar gets his share right out of the middle
 so this weekend I sewed just for me
I made this darling mantal banner

pattern came from this great book


Wait I didnt stop there
I also made this darling quilt using the trees
from the banner
they are simple but I love them

I used this years Basic Grey
It took on layer cake and 10 extra squares
My tree is adorned with teal and gold and the colors in this
project will go very nice

I am still working on a table runner for the
coffee table
I don't think it will last long on the table
Asher our one year old is coming home for christmas
and he will make sure it is on the floor at all times
