Christmas Pin Wheel Table Runner

This is the first time I have ever done pin wheels and even though not all of the points match up I think it is very cute!

I used some Moda Figgy Pudding Fabric for the pin wheels and a cheap white on white print that I got from wal-mart for the front. The backing fabric is from Hobby Lobby. It is a super cute brown and blue Christmas print. I got it half off because I bought it so close to Christmas time!

I got the idea from the blog Pleasant Home and also used their tutorial for Prairie points. I love the points. They are very easy and so cute!

Cold Feet!

Well, yesterday at 5:30 am the snow started. It didn't stop until about 8 this morning. Twenty Four inches of the white stuff fell over one day. So, Yes I do have cold feet but that is just because we went out and shoveled for quite awhile this morning. We are supposed to be on our way to Florida right now but Mother Nature had other plans for us.
Here is a tutorial on how to cure those cold feet issues!
This tutorial is so easy and so warm! I how ever made one small change to the first one that I made. I use feed corn in mine instead of the rice. I have been told that it retains the heat better. I warm mine in the microwave for 3 minutes on high and out come a bag that is nice and toasty!
I have also made these in a few other sizes. They come out great no matte what!
