Ului Table Runner and First Friday Freebie

I have a couple of finishes.  First is a freebie from Kaaren at The Painted Quilt - I had finished the stitchery, it just needed binding.

This was a fun project!  On the back, I used Ami Simms method for Fast Finish Triangles. I'll be doing this for ALL my small quilts from here on out - it's perfect, and easy.  This project is being donated to my favorite homeschool site for the annual raffle.  Thank you Kaaren, I do love your projects you give so freely!

I also finished my Ului Table Runner project from Jenny.    I apologize for the pics - it's yet another rainy day here.

The charm pack I used was called Pampered Pooch.  Another fun [and FAST] project.  Best of all?  It fits perfectly on my ironing table, to keep the kitty hair off.  My table is right under the window and it's kitty's perch for birdwatching.

I adore Jenny's little flowers in the corners!  I love everything she does.

I've been working on some top secret projects, which is why I've been so quiet.  My one year blog anniversary came and went last week, and I didn't even realize it.  I can't believe it's been a year - what a joy it's been to me, getting to know you all and enjoying your company on this grand crafty journey!  I'm so grateful for each and every one of you.

I'll try to post some sneak peeks this coming week - I'm working as fast as I possibly can on these projects, but darn it takes so long to get them out of my head and into my camera!  Have a fabulous week!

Funny, Allie -- I was just thinking that you finish more things than just about anyone I know . . .

Not to late for a belated celebration, is it? Happy Anniversary -- we got the gift!

Such pretty embroidery, but I don't even want to think about fall after the cold winter we had!

Congrats on the anniversary!

Mary-Kay said...

I love the fall stitchery. And the flowers in the corners of the little quilt are really cute. You're busy as always.

Allie said...

Congrats on the Anniversary! That is so great. Your stitchery always looks so great. I can't wait to see what else your working on!

Love your stitchery. Thanks for showing the back and the finishing triangles. I must remember that. Love the quilt too. Cute flowers in the corners. Great job!

Valerie said...

Oh I love them. I love all of your work. You just put me to shame. I have got to get busy -that is for sure. Congrats on one year!! I love the company too. It makes me want to do more knowing there are others like you out there encouraging beginners like me. I haven't worked on my butterfly lately but think I need to get it back out. I can't wait to see what all you are doing. You are amazing. I am proud to call you my friend.

I like your ironing board cover! I ought to rename one of my quilts for the same purpose. One of my cats favorite perch is on the ironing board looking out the window.

Shasta said...

Great finishes! Happy blogiversary. Wouldn't it be great if the camera could see insides our heads, and we could show everyone how productive our little minds are at coming up with so many great quilts.

Love the pampered pooches! That is a very cute table topper and what a good idea to use it on the ironing board!

Congratulations on the year! I am so glad you are a blogger - you are an inspriation to me!

Sharon said...

Happy Blogiversary! I'm so glad you're blogging...otherwise I wouldn't have gotten to know you!

I love your new kitty quilt/ironing board cover. I'm sure kitty thinks it's just for her/him! And Jenny's little flowers in the corners are very cute.

The fall stitchery is cute too. You do beautiful stitching!
