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)!
