Left Overs & A Give Away

Don't ya just love left overs!
Whether it be food or fabric.

 Does this red work look familiar?

 In March
Debbie at Busy As Can Be  
offered this free embroidery pattern.
I stitched it on a tea towel
only to discover that it was waaay 
too pretty to get dirty.
(Picture grandson, running in, wiping his
cute little dirty-grubby hands on it).
So, I cut the tea towel and used my leftover fabrics
from my red work quilt to make this table topper.
It measures about 25" and so cute on my table!

 There was even enough left over 
bias binding to finish it off!


Thanks again Debbie for the pattern!

And speaking of cute......
 Mary Engelbreit's 
Bowl of Cherries fabric with polka dots.

 
 And cook book.

Just leave a comment and 
I'll try real hard to draw your name 
and send both, 
1 yard of fabric and the cookbook, to you.


P.S. I'll draw Saturday morning before I head out of town!
