My first finishes of 2009!

Yes, I said finishes!! Despite the best efforts of my husband to keep me busy and distracted all day, I finally managed to sneak down into my sewing room this evening. And in the process, I completed two items I was working on last weekend. The first is the mystery table runner kit that I purchased over a year ago. Here it is, done and sitting where it will be residing in my sewing room. It is topping one of my cubby shelf units.

My second finish is my drunkards path table topper. I made the top last year from a charm packet, but I was struggling with finishing it. I just wasn't happy with the borders on it. But after a little brainstorming, I found a solution I like. Here's a peek.

Next in line for a finish is the quilt I'm making for Matt, my youngest son. Still trying to decide how to quilt it.

I love your table runner. You have such a way with colors. And I love your drunkards path. You've inspired me. Now I know what to do with those charm packs I just brought.
