|After a challenging session with the free motion feature of my sewing machine, I switched to a fun and easy play project. I have 3 Tammis Keefe place mats that were a wedding gift for my mom, who got married in 1955. My sister gave them to me some years ago when I was thinking about making a linen quilt. That idea has been abandoned. So, I decided to use these little gems for a table runner, ala this link..|
I looked up Tammis Keefe and found out she was a designer in the middle of the last century. Her colors and drawings were whimsical and charming. You can check out lots of her fun designs here.
The dark blue fabric around the place mats is Japanese, little frogs on lily pads, also from my sister.
And now, the reason for the title of this post: I woke up early this morning, and was thinking about getting up. Mike started talking in his sleep, which he does often. He said, " good idea. Sounds like fun. By God, that sounds like FUN!" I started laughing and woke him up. He couldn't recall what he was talking about, but it still has me chuckling.
