I got right down to business yesterday afternoon and finished stitching the second little tree table topper using Marcie's pattern. It went together even easier than the first. This time I chose to just put a plain inner border - partly to make it easy for me and partly because it's a gift and not everyone appreciates my scrappy little treatments. I hope to get it quilted and bound in the next couple of days. Guess where I will be bright and early tomorrow morning. WalMart . . . WalMart ? ? ? Yes, WalMart. Now I have not a single thing against WalMart; however, I am a Target-girl at heart. Anyway, I'll be at WalMart to purchase the new Eagles cd. There has not been a studio album of new material released since 1979. I was barely out of high school, a new bride and The Princess was not yet born. It has been a LONG time. I would have pre-ordered via the official website but the shipping was more than the cd and I would have had to wait all day for the mailman to deliver rather than spending my day committing the lyrics to memory. I'm so excited. I can hardly wait.

I love your topper-gotta love those plaids!, I have been watching Kim's and I think I will have to get on the bandwagon.

Now you 'take it easy' at wal-mart, I hope it wont be 'a long run' to get there...and seeing it's halloween time there, watch out for a witchy woman!! lol Tracey

Hehehehe -- the Eagles may just be a reason to go to Wal-Mart. I can't stand the place, but -- hmnn...I grew up listening to them. Lovely table topper!

Dianne said...

The tabletopper is just great, Libby. I may have to make a couple of these...if I can just find the sewing machine!
