We are coming to that time of the year again.................Christmas? Well yes, that seems to be looming. But I am referring to The Country Yard Annual exhibition. Always much anticipated by all. A day of fabric, quilts, goodies, live music & scrummy food! What more could you ask for?
The 26th of October is the magic day, so if you are in our neck of the woods, please stop by!
So with that in mind, exhibition or not, we are always coming up with new samples etc.

Not the greatest photography, but you can see the wonderful fabrics, the richness!
Geoff's Mom pattern called..........wait for it..............tulip table runner! We used Kim Diehl , Buggy Barn & reproduction fabrics.
Available as a kit or pattern.

The points are missing along the edge, that's just the binding waiting to be hand stitched in place.

Another book finish for me. Karen Harper is a great author.
  “This Home Valley Amish trilogy finale brings shades of the movie Witness to the page, in a pulse-pounding, man-and-woman-on-the-run adventure.  You won’t be disappointed in the ride!”

Thank you for all your kind words about Brian.


  1. It is such a lovely runner; hehe I started that binding yesterday, think I sewed about 2 inches...all my class students were very noisy and demanding :-) :-) :-) I must get into those books - they sound enjoyable.

  2. I like your runner!! Tulips are a favorite of yours!

  3. This is a beautiful Tulip Table Runner. I love the warm colors and the happy flowers. It would fit in my house so well!! : )
    Wish I was "in your neck of the woods" so I could drop in on the fun.

  4. Well done!
    Beautiful lovely tulips.

    Thanks for the booktip.
    I don't know this author.
