my {Ruby} Tuesday timeout...

I was a little under the weather this past weekend, so I spent my time in my jammies... sipping tea...and handstitching...


I'd cut into my coveted Ruby jelly roll and just kind of dove into it without a plan in the world. I pieced a couple of runners... (the top one is ready for handstitching the binding in place)...



...and with some orphaned blocks that I'd made incorrectly, was able to make a third little topper so they weren't wasted... (I took it out of the hoop for this picture, but there's still more stitching to do)...


Today's Tuesday timeout involved a lot of cutting with scissors and my hand is sure feeling it! I've been selling quite a few bags out of my etsy shop and thought today would be good for getting ready to restock a bit. The choosing fabrics and cutting everything takes forever so I'm glad to have that job behind me!

But today was also good for finishing off the binding on one of my Ruby runners, making it a great {Ruby} Tuesday timeout!

Love it!! The blanket stitch around the little flags is so cute. Did you handstitch the whole thing, or is there also some machine quilting? I've often wondered if the two can be mixed in the same project. I didn't know you had an etsy shop, I'm off to check it out...
