Fiber Tuesday 43

Welcome back to Fiber Tuesday! We've had a pretty mild winter this year.  Warmer than normal weather and very little sickness.  Well, that has all changed.  I got a stomach bug last week.  I got over that and the weather decided it was time to be winter.  We've had near or below zero temps the last couple of days.  It also looks like we are going to get a snow and ice mix tomorrow.  I take back the complaining that it didn't feel like Christmas with temps in the 50s.

Fiber Tuesday Link Party for all fiber crafts
I'm back to doing YouTube videos.  I really enjoy doing them but they are a little more in depth than I ever thought.  Last week I did a video on oiling a Necchi Supernova Julia.

This morning I shared a different side of myself.  I showed off a few cakes that I've decorated.  I thought you all might enjoying seeing what else I do besides sit behind a sewing machine.

Show me what you've been up to!!

In the spirit of Valentine's day this adorable table runner stole everyone's hearts.  See what I did there?  The best part of the project?  There is no bias edges on the whole project!!  I love no bias.

  1. Thank you for hosting. Have a wonderful week. Cathy

  2. Thank you for hosting. We've had the same weather. Tropics for Christmas, then bitter cold temps. There are frostbite warnings out now as we speak. I was chatting with my daughter who is in college last night, and she said that it seemed like the world's waiter keeps getting the order wrong. Her at Christmas: "Can I get some snow with that?" Waiter dumps Antarctica on her plate.

  3. We have a lot in common! I like to decorate cakes too!

  4. Your cake is so beautiful!!
    the winter in Amsterdam is not a winter at all. I do not need a wintrgoat and did not see any snow!!
