Yes, I've been taking time to quilt. Hooray!
I posted about the three coordinated winter-themed runners I was making back on March 3rd. I was 1) not particularly happy with them, and 2) disappointed in that I hadn't gotten them finished to use this (almost over now) winter season.
They very nearly got stuffed away in a "Works in Progress" box for me to finish for next winter. But I knew if I did that I would never get the urge to work on them again. Ever. Probably. Most likely.
So for the last couple of days I've been putting in spare time machine quilting them and putting on the bindings. Now that they're done, I'm glad I did it. Yep, I like them a lot better now that they are finished (maybe simply because they are finished!). Since I won't pack away the snow/winter type decorations until the end of this month when the Easter/spring decorations come out, I put them in place today.
This is by the back door that we go in and out of all the time. (The woven tray/basket holds mail to go to the Post Office and books to return to the library.)
One went on a storage cabinet that holds our (land line --- dinosaurs that we are) phone and answering machine on top.
The third is on a middle shelf of another storage unit that has a small kitchen TV and bookshelves above it.
Well, golldurn, why did I agonize over the looks of these three runners? By the time I get them in place, they're mostly covered with things placed on top of them!
