I'll post again (hopefully before blog hop is over) showing the finished runner with embellishments
|It just fits our 9' table with one leaf so it will be perfect with two and room for great-grand children bowls on top! LOL|
So let me introduce you to our family. I still think the girls will recognize their bowl as will Xavier J. since I chose based on personality/talent/interest/career . Wink!
|Sunflowers for DH & Me|
|Lynn & Trey & DJ|
|Lisa w/Kristin & PJ|

Second side will be for Great-Grand children!

"Life happens and you have to adapt."
I read this on one of the blogs I frequent and it really hit home especially dealing with pictures & blogger, Louisiana weather, and life.
Lately, we have had to do quite a bit of adapting from breaking air conditioners to busted water beds to hard to find waterbed mattress sizes to moving DGD#1 back to college to electricity outages to finding funds for all these and other adaptation during July and August. But I am getting good at adapting without stress. Ha Ha Ha! (Hysterical laughter.)
|First try: Pretty but small pieces.|
I made the first set of bowls according to the pattern and oh....my eyes couldn't adapt to the size so seam ripper had lots of unsewing to do. So first adaptation had to happen.... I wanted 12" blocks but available copier would only do 8 1/2" blocks. So my adaptation got an adaptation which was good since we are such a large blended family. 12" blocks would have been too big for the already large table. DH provided more adaptation with wanting names and embellishment! I need to pet fabric so I am off to shop hop all over South Louisiana for the next 3 days. Who knows how I will adapt to hopping with limited funds! Probably not going to do much adapting there.Lator Gators! However I will be looking for a surprise based on adaptation for one lucky internet hopper open to all who comment and are not NO REPLY bloggers. Only one comment per hopper please...I will draw the winner on 9/29.
