happy monday.

Monday, December 7, 2009
i tried to have a productive sewing weekend.
it just didn't happen...
but so far since jacquie started the joy in the new year challenge i've had 7 finishes
so since i admitted to 14 wips...that puts me half way there... with 4 weeks left in the year... wish me luck.



so instead of seeing what i'm not working on now..
here are some photos of holiday runners i've made over the years.
{new tutorial coming soon..hopefully tomorrow}

Pattern is from 12 Days of Christmas by Nancy Halvorsen



these two are from a pattern in Quilts & More Magazine ... I took the block from a quilt and made 6.. put 3 into each runner.. they were a gift set for family friends... {a mom & daughter}


this one is from the book Quilts Through the Seasons by Eleanor Burns...
i have a large spring one from this pattern that i've been working on forever... i think with me if i don't have a deadline.. and the quilt isn't small.. chances are it isn't getting done anytime soon.


last one is Tree's Up! Light's On! by Sandy Gervais of Pieces from My Heart
the pattern is for a 30 block quilt.. and i started one of those too.. one day i'll finish it!!


as for the giveaway... the winner is lucky #13
