Gotta Love Some Quick Makes!

During the week, I had a hankering to make something... something quick & easy... just to have a 'finish'... do you ever feel like that?!
Went for a rummage through my tubs... found some fun hearts print fabric & something to go with that... then a St Patrick's Day shamrock fabric & happened to have some green to co-ordinate with it too. Excellent!
Took next to no time to press & cut the fabrics... then when I was at Spotlight for something else later that day, I spotted this cute Easter fabric & added it to my basket trolley... found some great purple in my tubs & cut them too.

Thursday morning saw me in the Sewing Room nice & early... such easy sewing & fun results!
All three finished before noon. 

A peeper was added to a couple of them... so easy to do... I always machine-baste my peeper into
Not quite taking the ten minutes of their name, but I'm super-chuffed with these
"10 Minute Table Runners"
Cheery themes for special days... love them♥♥

How cute is the selvedge of the Easter fabric... little eggs!

Also while I was at Spotlight, there was a trolley filled with very heavily discounted candles... Oh I L-O-V-E candles... how could I walk past these beauties, for only $2 each?! (I bought 5!)
Smell divine even when not burning.

Love your runners Anthea. I keep saying i'll make them one day but never get around to it. I bought a Christmas kit about 2 years ago to make one of these runners but it's still sitting there. Maybe this year. :) Hugs,xx
