Getting stuff done

I finished up the Trees quilt last week and posted it for sale on Facebook…so far no takers. No worries, I’ll hang on to it for a bit and if it doesn’t sell I’ll probably donate it. I’m not trying to create a business out of making quilts, I do it because I enjoy it…if I make a few bucks at it, well that’s just icing on the cake.

I was feeling the need for a quick finish so I pulled a charm pack I got in a Sew Sampler box and used the pattern provided to make this table runner. It’s not my aesthetic but I like how it turned out. Again, I put it up for sale on Facebook.

I had some half square triangle blocks left over so I’m making a coordinated hot pad to go with the table runner…still in process.

I also started another project with some Jolly Bar precuts from a Sew Sampler box…this time I used the Jolly Bar pattern book from a different box and I’m almost done putting this baby size top together

The weather here has been really mild and today will probably be the last day in the 50’s for the next 10 days so I’ll be getting out there the start week 4 of C25K. The running portions of the intervals will now start to increase…I’m excited to see how I’ll do!

And I decided to take the leap and sign up for another Half Marathon – the Myrtle Beach Mini. This is the same race I completed for my very first Half and my running buddies have a tradition of running it every year. I’ve skipped it for the last two years but figured since I’ll be living in MB I may as well sign up. The race is in October so I have PLENTY of time to train!

The rest of today will be spent watching football and later going to a few parties in the neighborhood.

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and I hope all your dreams come true!! 😀

ttfn…
