HIGH FIVE ME!!!! ANYONE FOR A HIGH FIVE?

Got my camera back....(hand up in the air)....any takers....

So...here is what I have finished. Yes, I know, I had made this table runner for a friend back in February but her birthday came and went (I went out and brought her a gift, didn't think she would like this..... but finally totally completed (last week).....whoooooooo.....

You all saw this one recently, the Disappearing Nine Patch, made from left overs....totally completed..... (Hand in the air again....) Slap!!!


This next picture is the nice backing for the above quilt. I found this at one of the stores here, it is not 100% cotton but it is oooooohhhh so nice...you see those flowers, they are rasied (almost like velvet but not).


As you saw this a week ago, it is now totally completed after four years in the making.....I decided to finish it after posting my weakness of not completing projects.


I would have another done but the tension on my machine is messed up and so no stippling until I can fix it....I spent over an hour taking out stitches (isn't that the pits)? Now I have this one quilt, that is about seven years old, all it needs is about 2 to 3 hours of hand quilting...surely I can do that? surely? Maybe if I show you a picture of it later on this week and shame myself, I will get it done? No high five on that one...

Slap, slap, slap, you go girl!!
And how on earth did you get 110 followers? I'll bet it was that vacation giveaway, huh? That one took the cake.

Congrats on finishing some things!!!

High five back at ya.

I love the table runner. I like how the colors look softer than the normal red, white, and blue.

Pat said...

I STILL think you complete more projects than most of the rest of us do.....so I don't agree you are slow to finish!!! LOL

I'm giving you high 5's back and a low 5 as you head in to fix the tension on the sewing machine. I love the 4 yo project...it looks like little bits of sunshine.
