I made a table runner with leftover squares from a quilt I made for Claudia's bed back at the old house. I used thick flannel as the lining because when I've made table runners and place mats in the past, even the thickest quilt batting makes them too poofy .
We also planted a berry patch! I am so excited about this. We pulled out a huge, old lilac in order to do it ( I was afraid to show my face around the alley afterwards). But then our neighbors (whom we share this little patch of dirt with) got into the act and pulled up some privet and put down grass seed and laid the path. How nice is that! We have two neighbors whose beautiful lilacs we can actually see and enjoy from our new berry patch, so pulling it up didn't seem like too much of a loss to me. Hopefully we will have enough berries to share in the future, so folks may forgive us.
