My NEWEST hobby....

I'm making a quilted table runner. I am having SO much FUN with this!! A few girls I know were going to start these. I told them I was I know, I'm sewing again!! LOVE IT!!!! So I went to pick out fabric....I wasn't sure if I would make a tablerunner or quilt for my guest room......well, I found fabric for my Guest Room quilt BUT found this other fabric on sale for $5/bundle down from $8. I HAD to get it! HOW could I turn it down?!?!?! I'm only PART through but it's been SO long since I've used my rotary cutter, though I SWEAR I just saw the darned thing the other day, I can't find it. Sooooo...I'm going to buy a new one and a new mat tomorrow so I can get going and finish my top.
This is just a sneak peak at SOME of my finished squares before being cut.......

Then.......Look at this!!!!
These two beauties were right outside the house, down on the river today.
Samuel first noticed her:
She was munchin' on a fish. Kinda hard to see I know.....Thank heavens for my zoom but even still.....
Then her buddy came along....
I wished I could have gotten a better picture. (I just LOVE Eagles.) I took this one from a window in the daylight basement that faces the North end . Then I went upstairs, out on the deck but by the time I got up there........
....she had decided it was time to leave. UGH!
They'll probably be hanging around for another day or two. I'll have to see if I can get a better pic or two. I keep hoping for the 'perfect' Eagle pic.
I'll have to post a pic of my EASY Tabletopper c/o Erin tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by!
