I also pulled a table runner out of my UFO collection and did my favorite grid quilting pattern. I'll be trimming it and sewing on the binding tonight. I figure I can do the hand sewing during the football games tomorrow and then leave it with my Mother-in-Law for a hostess gift. She is not a quilter but loves decorating her table and appreciates a hand made gift.
My Santa project is on hold as I decided my only suitable black tone on tone in my stash had such a horrible feel I just couldn't use it. I'll cut it up for string quilts when I clear out my scrap bin. If you've never shopped at Thousands of Bolts you should give it a try. Great prices, fast service and lots of beautiful fabrics. You can pop up a 2" scan of all fabrics so it's easy to check the pattern scale. I've never been disappointed with my (many) purchases over the years. I'll be expecting some black tone on tones and other goodies in my mailbox next week.
I'm wishing everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving. I'm grateful for so many things and looking forward to family gatherings over the next 3 days. Then, it will be a mad quilting/decorating/shopping rush before Christmas! Notice how the quilting comes first ;-).
