Another project done

I am starting to sound like a broken record, but here goes another story of how a project got started years ago only to resurface this summer. Just over 6 years ago a favorite quilt shop offered a table runner of the month program. Each month another kit showed up in my mailbox for a seasonal table runner. I started off keeping pace with the mailman but then one thing or another happened and they fell to the way side. We moved, built our house (in that order) and I didn't have a functioning sewing room for a full year. Which doesn't exactly explain how this kit languished in my 'waiting' pile for 5 more years but I can't really offer a believable excuse so I'm deflecting from that by telling you we moved a few times in a short period of time.

In my quest to complete anything older then my house, here is November's table runner. I finished it last week. Now I only have December's to get after. And, by operating under my theory that anything older then my house must be finished, we moved into our partially constructed house on December 23rd.... and it was December that I received that kit so maybe it's not older then the house and I don't have to finish it any time soon!

What a relief. It's all in how you look at it.

  1. A great finish! I wish I could also sound like a broken record, but unfortunately - no finishes here, lol.

  2. Love, love, love the bright colors! I love to see your quilting projects. Each one is wonderful.

  3. It's another beauty! I'm sure it will look wonderful on your table this fall :)
