I'm so sorry I have been away for so long! The heat pretty much drains my energy and my motivation so I don't usually get a lot done this time of year. Some people struggle with the blues in the dead of winter, but it affects me in the heat of summer. Not a hot weather girl, never have been, never will be!
Here's a really cute project that can be made inside your cool sewing room! Head on over to http://thequiltedfish.typepad.com/to get the details on this runner. She has even provided a set of printable instructions.
Have a happy and safe Fourth!
