BLAME IT ON THE CHOCOLATE ;-)

Mar says that medication (the chocolate) arrived and that soon I would be sewing. LOL
Look I've been sewing today, although I didn't do a very good job. AARRGGHHH My pinwheels look awful, I had a battle with my Tri-Recs Tools, my iron wasn't hot enough (why does it shut itself off just before I need it???)

I've been looking at Marcie's Trees on the Table topper and thinking about making one but putting if off. Kim issued a challenge recently but I just sat back and watched everyone else make one. It was time to make one. I have a dear friend who loves all the seasonal table toppers that I've made in the past and secretly would love to own one. LOL! I think she'd love to have one of these but not this one! I'll keep this one for our table and make another one for her. Actually, I probably should make two or three more.

Marcie, thank you for providing such a terrific pattern. (Marcie offers this pattern as a freebie on her website http://www.patchalotpatterns.com/)

I hope that you've all had a wonderful week end. Thanks for visiting!

In Friendship!

Looking good! Thanks for sharing!

Your trees look cool. I guess chocolate does work wonders.

Marcie said...

Hey, look who came to the party! Your little trees are wonderful! Now everyone who comments after me needs to say, "for me???" LOL!

I do love that pattern -- hopefully this one helped pull you out of your "ho-hum" mood (I get them too -- unfortunately, I can feel one right now and I have way too many gifts to finish for that to be an option!). And btw -- if that's your definition of "bad" -- my home has a place for that little beauty.

Angie said...

For me, for me????? ROFL You go, girl, I do love it!! So glad to see you did some stash-diving and turned 'Ms. Jan' back on!! :D

Nadine said...

And another cutie bites the dust ! I really don't see what's wrong with it, my friend . Just LOVELY, as usual. I'm GLAD you started sewing again.....

Hihs & smiles to you,
NADINE

Oh goodie! You sewed and made something fabulous! Aren't these addictive to make! Good job!

Wendy said...

Oh I love your table topper. I've had my eye on that one since Libby made hers. The pattern is sitting on my table waiting for me to pick it up.

It's great to see all them popping up everywhere. Your friend will be surprise and delighted to get one from you.

Libby said...

Love your trees . . . aren't they fun to make?

Floss said...

Love your tree, one of the girls at my guide also made one. I think I am going to have to make one too.

Carol said...

I knew chocolate would take care of anything that's wrong. YIPPEE! That is the best medicine. Love that topper.

Suze said...

It is wonderful. I adore chocolate covered cherries and this looks just like one...........

Katie said...

I've been watching this pattern too. I think it's time for me to make one! :)

Nan said...

I think that topper is the sweetest! It looks good enough to eat! I would love to give it a very good home - hint, hint!

I went to take a peek at the freebie you mentioned and found the little mini 16 patch table quilts there also. I have made 4 this week and am loving making them. You can see a picture on my blog. Thank you for posting your link. I would never have found my perfect little project if you hadn't!
