A Quick Project

Over the weekend and today I started and finished a quick project. I used three of the Valori Well's FQs I won a few weeks ago. Nancy, I don't think I'm going to enter this one into the Challenge. I have another idea for the rest of the FQs.

I used the Bouquet Pincushion Bags pattern by Debbie Beaves for Connecting Threads. It was a free download, but they don't have it posted any longer. Here is the bag closed and sitting pretty.
Here is the bag open with the pincushion and the little needlebook displayed.
The pattern went together quickly and I think Valori's fabrics look great used this way.

I cleaned out one of my sewing baskets and found a hand pieced Christmas table runner that I started way back in December 2004. The top was nearly pieced so I decided to finish it last night. I should have it all pieced later tonight.

I hope everyone is staying cool where it's hot and warm where it's cold!

How cute!! If this isn't your challenge piece, I can't wait to see what is??!!!

I have to remember to add the list to my sidebar. I think an on-line vote would be fun, so don't post a photo here....please??
