A few of too many WIP's and some finishes


Can you tell me where August went? 
'Winter' is over for this year, even if it doesn't feel like that this morning - it's cold on the plateau. 

I've been busy - as always - and here are a some WIP's and finishes for August.

First of all, THANKS for all the comments on my previous post
I love log cabin quilts because of all the possible patterns. 

I decided on #7 and swapped the blocks around until I was happy. :) Now the center is made of two different red blocks and the other are reds and greens. I've added a scrappy border too. I got the flannel for the back about 2 weeks ago, I have batting and thread... To finish it will keep me busy and out of trouble for some days! :)

Last year I sold a table runner similar to this one. I had more of these beautiful fabrics and decided to make another green table runner

... and a red one. Love these fabrics! 
Ran out of fabrics for the backing - more on the way.

I've had this fabric forever and couldn't decide what to use it for. Last year I got a bargain on eBay for the red/green cones fabric (the same fabric line) and now it's soon to be a wall hanging and 4 placemats. 

A coffee theme table runner - ready to be quilted. 

These are only a few of my WIP's. I hope to finish them all - err... at least some of them before I start anything new! 
Please remind me if I forget - lol! 

Here are the finishes!

Whew! Didn't know I have been that busy! 
I love using up bits and pieces and all these small items are made using leftovers from other projects. 

It's time for tea with hubby! :)
Have a wonderful day!
