A Week of Finishes - Yay!
I wanted to share some projects that I finished this week. Yay!! Nothing like a deadline to get me moving! I had two girlfriends who had milestone birthdays this week. No worries - I won't reveal your ages!
I made this little birthday sampler, Happy Birthday by Blackbird Designs, for my girlfriend Dawn. (It was hard to get a photo without glare from the glass) I like this design because it includes both her and my initials in the top left and right corners. Her birthday was Monday.
A closer look before I framed it.
On Thursday, Karin celebrated a milestone birthday as well. I made this large mug rug as part of her gift. She likes bright colors, so I thought this was perfect.
The back was as colorful as the front. Opps... I guess you can see the year on there. :-)
I also finished this adorable bib for Karin's grandson. Dylan is the son of my co-worker, Jaime - who bought her first home with her husband over the summer.
I finished this table runner for Jaime and Tony as a housewarming gift. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture of it quilted before I wrapped it. So, you'll have to take my word for it that it was awesome. :-) These are the colors in her kitchen/dining room.
So it was a very productive week and felt good to finally get these projects done and now I can focus on projects without deadlines!
Happy Birthday Dawn & Karin (two awesome quilters)!
Linking up at Kathy's Quilts Slow Sunday Stitching.. which I hope to be doing this afternoon!
