Easter Projects in San Francisco

I am here at my daughter's house in San Francisco and my sister came up for a few days from Southern California. We usually make something when we all get together and she brought a cute pattern for a Easter table runner.

The first one is my daughter's. She is not a quilter but she picked the fabrics and width of the strips and we sewed it for her. The table runner ends up about 23x29 and looks great on her table.

This second one is mine. I will get home on Friday night so will be able to put it on the table for a couple of days before the holiday is over.

The last one is Robin's. She left for home on Jet Blue yesterday afternoon so hers should be on her table already.

We had lots of leftover fabric from making the table runners so decided to make each of us a set of coasters. Robin's are the round ones, and the others were split between Christina and me.

Had a lot of fun and got something nice out of our little projects.


  1. I LOVE your table centers! Where on earth did you find the pattern?

  2. those are just tooooo cute and springy and adorable! Which, also by the way, describes the pictures of Riley on her quilt! Awesome!

  3. Oh the table runner is just adorable! Do you have a pattern for it? I love the coasters as well. The quilt for Riley is adorable and Riley is quite a doll!

  4. Those are the cutest Easter table mats! Gorgeous colors.

  5. What great spring/easter projects!
    Love the fabrics you chose and such fun ideas!

  6. What a great idea. I love the table runners. Perfect for Easter.

  7. I love your tablerunners. When I first saw the pics I thought they were placemats. Very nice!

  8. Your table runners are just too cute and I love, love, love the springtime fabrics. Great job of using up the leftovers for coasters, an added bonus!

  9. Beautiful table runner and how wonderful to make them with family.

    Riley looks happy with her quilt. Perhaps she will be quilter some day.

  10. Oh, my goodness that Easter Egg runner is adorable. Love the coasters, as well.

  11. Oh my gosh...those are the cutest easter egg table runners I've ever seen. Thanks for sharing.

  12. Aren't these clever! What a great idea and not terribly demanding! Sure says "Happy Easter!" Great job.

  13. I loved the placemats so much, I downloaded all three masterpieces and printed them out to hang on my "What's Cooking" board. I want to make a set or two because they just look like so much fun!

    Common Breast Cancer Myths

    The first myth pertaining to this disease is that it only affects women.

    Second myth that is associated with this disease is that if one has found a lump during an examination, it is cancer.

    Third is that it is solely hereditary

    The next myth associated with breast cancer is downright ridiculous. Would you believe, that in this day and age, some individuals still think that breast cancer is contagious?

    Conversely, some individuals foolishly believe that breast size determines whether or not one gets cancer.

    Finally, another myth that is associated with this disease is that it only affects older people. This is not so. Although the chance of getting breast cancer increases with age, women as young as 18 have been diagnosed with the disease.
