Last holiday table runner finished

Last table runner of the holiday season ! Yeah 
For some reason I got on a table runner kick. This Christmas runner was started last year & I'm very 
Happy to have it finished . 
On the sewing table today also finishing a knit dress I started a few months ago . We have a party on  Friday I'd like to wear it to. 
Low key Thanksgiving here as neither of my boys or their families are able to be here. 
I'm just hosting my brother & sister in law . Then friends house for dessert . 
Happy Thanksgiving !!!!

In NYC -but no time for th Garment District

Hi there ,
I'm in NYC for a quick visit to my son, DIL & DGD . My son is running the NYC Marathon -his first Marathon . So no time for the Garment District ,  but time with DGD😍😍
Since it was a last minute decision to come here , I didn't make anything for DGD. 
It has been hard to make clothes for her  because of the distance, not hearing back if things fit or are even liked & clothing tastes can be different . 
 But I'm lucky to be here & see family 😘😘😘

Done is WAY better than not done !!

I finally finished these 2 table runners . Both were projects from Sept Bernina clubs . The pumpkins are embroidered & the stockings are appliquéd.
I love my labels from Dutch Label shop . 
I bought them for clothing , but I think it's nice to use them for other items as well .
Now if I could just get my garment sewing mojo to return !!!!!!!
I cleaned the sewing room today & found a knit top I started last winter. So ...
I actually worked on it this afternoon. 
That's huge progress to sew for ME for a change .
