I have finished quite a few things in the last week, which is one of the reasons I haven't posted. Been a little busy bee over here!
This one is the pillow cover for my sister. She turns 18 tomorrow and it was her birthday gift (we visited this past weekend so I gave it to her then). She is very into giraffes. I found this little guy online. Definitely not my own creation and I will give credit where credit is due! I made my sister's New York Buildings quilt last year, and this will match pretty perfectly. :) She was excited!
Next I finished my wonderful Mother-in-Law's table runner! I really don't know why it took me so long to finish. She bought the pattern and the fabric. All I had to do was put it together. I had it mostly done - all the cutting and even a lot of the piecing. So I pulled it out and finished basting (and binding before I even quilted! gasp!) in a few hours before we left for the weekend. Then I hand quilted it while we visited.
Finally, I whipped this out today in about an hour and a half. Another pillow to match my parent's quilt that I gave them for Christmas. I still have some fabric left so a third will probably appear eventually. :)
We spent the three day weekend (four days for me, cause I took Friday off, too!) first with my family in Watsonville and then with hubby's family in Stockton. :) It was great. My little sister graduated from high school with honors! So proud! She will be attending Cal State Long Beach in the fall and will be majoring in Criminal Justice! One smart cookie!
