January Challenge - one down.....
My Red&White Tablerunner is finshed!!!
When I'm doing several projects intensively, like I am for the time beeing - it seems like I never will see the end of it. Apparently there is an end - within reach too.
The quilting is done in-the-ditch and by freehand on the middle section.
I think it compliments the fabric quite well.....
I chose to sew the tabelerunner together in-side-out before quilting it and then, instead of using binding, I sewed on lace for a finishing touch.....
I have my other WISPs lined up - so I should, hopefully, see the end of them during this week and weekend.
Just to add some pressure on myself I've decided to finish one more thing by the end of January. This will be the sister to the pillow I made in October.
I never set out to win this challenge;
#1 I'm working TOO SLOW
#2 It occured to me that I don't have enough UFOs/WISPs
(due to #1 - even over years...)
But I did want to see if I could bind myself to a month of finishing unfinished buisness........ I must say that bringing something to an end is very motivating and I enjoy it tremendously!!!!
Happy sewing to you all :o)
