fun weekend

Me and my family spent the day in Prescott yesterday and I did something I have never done and always to do and here is a video.  I have a terrible fear of heights and this was a blast.

Darlene's mystery quilt step 2 completed

I was really getting frustrated with part two which is not like me. The measurements were not coming out right and I had to make some adjustments but it is done. Thank goodness I had some wet spots in the picture on the fabric from ironing. It is just water me dried fine. It looked like stains but I assure it is not.

Matching placemats and table runner

I just finished these placemats today. I used remnant coffee fabrics that were left over from the table runner I made 2 weeks ago. Then I used a meander stitch on them all...very time consuming but they turned out awesome.
