I'm back

It has been a busy few months. We went to the states to catch up with old friends and visit new places and had an amazing time. I have not sewn a lot. I made another table runner like this one only longer and better and gave it to good friends in the U.S.
A friend from the gym is moving to New Zealand so a made her a little table topper with Australian fabrics. I used a Moda Bakeshop pattern, Positively prefect by April Rosenthal

I added an extra cross to the back.


We had our first regatta last weekend. That is my crew out in front. I paddle at position 5. The Sydney boat just behind us ended up coming first and we were second. We were very happy with that result.This race was 14 km (about 8 miles). Tomorrow we are racing a 20 km (about 12 miles). Let me say I am a little concerned about making the distance. OK more than a little!

Hopefully I will post again soon.
