Finally....

Today was such a great day! I got much accomplished (thanks to my sweet babe taking 2 very long naps). I started the day by getting some of my Bible studying completed and followed it up by some sweet, sweet time spent with Makayla. I adore seeing her discover new things, It is such a joy!!! When she went down for her 1st. nap I got some much needed cleaning complete on our back patio as well as getting some new veggies planted in the garden. When M went down for her 2nd. nap I thought I would attempt my Yudu machine (again). Speaking of which, I don't think I have ever mentioned that I invested/splurged in a Yudu machine. The possibilities are endless with this machine but man oh man, I have had A LOT of problems with it! The key to the machine is applying the emulsion correctly and I just haven't gotten the knack for it. Do any of you have a Yudu? If so, any helpful hints for me? When I have had luck in getting my screen burned correctly, I have made some fabulous projects with it (will share soon). Anyhoo, I attempted to Yudu again and to no avail was not able to complete the project I had in mind, BUT I was able to FINALLY complete this:
I have been wanting to make a burlap runner for our kitchen table for a L-O-N-G while but have not gotten around to it. I am so happy with the way it turned out, and boy was it a simple project. I love when such a simple project really adds that something a room/area needs. I adore burlap...I'm using it on everything these days :). Since I already had the M stencil cut out I decided to make a pillow for the bench on our front porch...

LOVE :)

Love the burlap runner! It looks good for any season and adds a lot of warmth! I adore all the burlap pillow but this is the firs runner I've seen. Great job!

I've always wanted to make things with burlap but lack sewing skills. Is it fairly easy to work with?
