On a table runner roll

Think I am doing good on my weekly focusing projects :)

Today I finished another table runner. It has been on my focus list , so I am really happy that I can cross this out off the list now :)

I really love the hearts on this table runner. I anyone wonders it is a pattern from Northern Quilts design.
I've handquiltet three sides of my Leannes House quilt. One side left, and then the binding, so it will still be on my focus list. Looking forward to have this one finished. It has really been a WISP for a looooong time now.

When one project out of the focus list perhaps it is time to choose another one. I have several to choose from in my WISP drawer.


Maybe this stitchery (also one of Leanne Beasley design). Stitched a long time ago. Have to think about it. I also found a new project on Litamora's blog. I got the book too and perhaps it is time to start a new project :) I also have a crazy idea that I will make one Christmasgift each month. And I got a new pattern in the mail yesterday. But I really need some more hours each day/week to get it all done.

Focus this week will be:

*1: Quilting on my Leannes House quilt.
One side left to quilt, and then the binding.

*2. Placemats for two.
Christmasgift from my friend Bjørg. Nothing done so far on this.

*3: Angel among us BOM.
Block one done, stitchery for block two done, still stitching on block 3

*4: Life is Beautiful BOM
Three blocks finished by now.

5: Have no idea yet,
but is has to be something done by machine since
all the other focus projects are mostly done by hand.

Saying for today:

Find a job you like

and you add five days to every week.

(is that the way to get the extra hours we all are asking for????)

I adore your Leanne's house quilt. I really need to get this pattern one day. I have her Journey of a Quilter but need the right fabrics to start it.

Leannes House`en din blir bare så lekker, gleder meg til å se den ferdig. Har mønsteret, men..... eh! du vett....har "ingentingen" på vent eg heller....eh! jo....ha ha ha
En vakker dag....men da blir stoffene fra stasjet og IKKE ny kjøpte! Og det e jo kjempe positivt.
Håper du får ei flott sy uke :)

Your table runner is lovely and you have certainly been busy. I like Leanne Beasley's stitchery although in my case it is "Summer is the best time for stitching" because we stay inside out of the heat and rain in nice cool airconditioning but Leanne lives near Melbourne where it can be very cold in Winter. Happy stitching!

Thanks!!
