Before i start sharing some tidbits from our family vacation with you i wanted to show you a little something i made for a new friend.
I(and my sister) have been blog commenting and getting to know a lovely lady lady, T.J., through her blog. At some point my sister and i realized that she was on the way to our vacation destination in Maine. SO we decided to set up what we have been jokingly referring to as our first match.com meet up. She was even better in person. The meet up did not disappoint. It is good to know that the women you make connections with through blogs are real people and that the connection carries through into really meeting one another. And her little guy was even sweeter in person.
I did not want to go empty handed, so the day before, when i should have been packing and getting ready for vacation i was making this runner/wall hanger for her. I took a chance that she would like the colors, and just went total improv on it. i was inspired by a wall hanging quilt that i saw on Silly Boo Dilly blog, but wanted to put a spin on it and make it more my own. Hence the vintage sheet additions and the wonky blocks. I was calling it my vintage modern table runner...modern would be the ikea fabrics.
I loved it and more importantly so did she. I am hoping to make another version of it for myself because i love it just that much.
