and I actually managed to make something new too. This table runner was in use on Christmas day and somehow managed not to get gravy spilled on it straight away.
It is backed with cream sheeting - no binding, just placed face to face and sewn all around, leaving a hole for turning. I was really taken with the cranberry/natural combination and imagining a quilt in these colours in the future.
I also like the wonky straight line quilting, which I sewed at roughly 1/4 or 1/2 inch intervals.
The first resolution for this year is to lose the extra half-stone put on over the holidays. The others are:
- If it's going to take no more than a couple of minutes, do it right away. (For some reason I pulled an old management book off the shelf during the holidays and some of it actually applied to real life.)
- Do one creative thing every day.
- Get fit. I have made a start by buying a sports bra - hopefully it will get some use as I'm going to try this Couch to 5k program which is ideal for the lardy sloth I've turned into.
I am not going to sign up for any finish-alongs. I am in awe of all the fantastic lists of WIPs I've been reading, but what I really need is a Start-along.
