Two down . . .


I started the quilting on these two table runners on New Years Day, and finished it yesterday morning. Yesterday afternoon and this morning I got both of them bound and labeled. About time, don't you think? The blocks were pieced sometime in the early to mid 90's, and were set into three table runners in 2003. I'll give my daughter her choice and then will keep the last one for me. I'm so glad these are done - I was awfully tired of seeing them waiting on Gandalf! It sure feels good to cross the first two flimsies off my list!

Gratitudes:
1. Toast with chunky peanut butter
2. A comfortable, familiar sweatshirt
3. The satisfaction gained from finishing an old project
