Birthday table runner

I have not sewn much this weekend. I went shopping for the summer sales with my daughter in law and one grandson.  So much fun!  Oh, I did get to see the bathroom a lot as we are potty training the 3 year old.

And we did have a fabulous BBQ birthday gathering of my kids and significant others. It makes my heart sing to have us all together sharing food and laughter as the little ones kept us busy.  

Sunday, My hubby and I had a lunch out by a lake and loved people watching at the beach. Special time.

So progress on the sewing front: here is the applique I was able to complete on the birthday table runner. These letters are only about an inch and a 1/4 inches tall with the K and H being about 2 and a half. So tiny tracing, cutting and applique by machine.

But it really adds to the table runner. I had such a decision for the blue and did not like the business of the fabric provided.   But is is really cute.  Now just to assemble the last couple of pieces and quilt. 

Here is the book it is from:  It is part one as this is only for January to spring. 

here are the other patterns for the birthday section.  

Oh, and here is the little guy who knows how to swipe a smart phone already. He loved seeing this picture we took of himself, blurry though it is. He is such a dear.
