First 2012 Finish!

finished heart table runner
So I finished this little table runner up, almost exactly 1 year after I started it. Not bad, huh?

I did a spiral of echo quilting inside each heart, and finished it off with machine-stitched binding. The straight lines in the echo quilting are not easy to do with the free motion foot! I'm still waiting for supplies to finish some of my current in-process bigger things, but I got another small project started that I'll share tomorrow.

We had a crazy week last week, with school cancelled every day and the power out most of the day on Thursday. We were pretty lucky to have our power outage only last 12 hours; some people in the Seattle area are still without power after the snow-and-then-ice storms we had last week. I'm looking forward to getting back into a good routine and checking some things off my to-do list this week!

Hope you are happy and warm! What are you working on this week?
