I began working on a butterfly cushion for my grandmother. She has no idea that I am making it for her but she does not have the internet so I am not worried that she will even begin to figure this out. A picture of my progress can be found below.

I also found a few older finishes as I was organizing my craft room.
|14 ct. white Aida,|
2 x 1 DMC Cotton Floss
|Both projects, 14 ct. AIDA, DMC cotton Floss 2 X 1|
There was a portion of the last few weeks that I got bored with the Butterfly so I started and almost finished: "You're so cute, I can Hardly Bear it" from The Cross Stitcher Magazine.

Finally....I picked up a new hobby! In my previous post I showed a few items that I had sewed, including quilted coasters. After spending months searching for a table runner that I liked, I decided to make my own. I have completed piecing together the 2 sides of the piece.
Now all is left is actually quilting them together. The fabric was a set of precut strips, Bali Pop from Robert Kaufman (I think). If you cannot tell, I am a huge fan of the Color blue and all of its possible shades! I didn't realize until I put the knitted dishrag and the table runner pics near one another how close they are in color...interesting.
So I had a busy but more importantly productive 2 weeks, hopefully the next ones will be as great!
