Mission accomplished

I got home from work yesterday and my intentions were to get going on those table runners. But first, I had to chill on the couch with the tablet. Then there were a few little things to do around the house. By the time I finished that it was time to make some dinner. Once I finished eating I decided it was a good time to get the dishes done and clean up the kitchen.

STOP! ENOUGH! No more procrastinating.

I pushed up my sleeves and dug in and got those runners done. She wanted these for a narrow table so they aren't very wide. Sorry about the crappy picture but I took a quick one with my cell phone and it was after 6:00 so there was no natural light from outside.


Now I need to catch up on the blog reading and emails.

    1. Thanks. They are called a 10 minute table runner and are pretty easy to make. It does take me longer than 10 minutes though

  2. they are beautiful, I like the red one best for me, it looks like a burgundy red, not santa red. my house can't use Santa red, our 20 year old carpet is the rose color that was so popular back then. I am rambling. Good Job on pushing up the sleeves and gettn it done!!!

  4. Those are pretty! I admire folks who can sew Oh hell I admire everyone who can do all those crafty, creative and yet practical things. Okay so I can cook when I have a mind to, and I'm a super-duper cleaner when I put my mind to it but that's the limit to my domestic talents.

    1. I'm not great at sewing but I can do basic things. This was called a 10 minute table runner and it probably took me 20 minutes to do each one

    2. Sweetie, it would take me a life time of minutes and I still wouldn’t be able to do it 😊

  5. Very pretty and you can mark them off your to-do list. Excellent.

    Have a fabulous day off, Ann. Big hug to you and tons of scritches to Gibbs. ♥♥♥

    1. No, not getting paid. She did offer to pay me but she's done a lot to help me out and this was my way of thanking her for all she's done

    1. You could, they are really easy. I believe there is a youtube video showing how to make them. It's called the 10 minute table runner.

  11. I think they're beautiful too, especially the red one. And even though it's satisfying to have finished them, it was important to have some chill time too! It keeps us human and is actually more efficient in the long run.

    1. Thanks. They are a really easy runner to put together. Yes it is satisfying to have them finished. Always nice to get something crossed off the list.
      I can't remember the name of the font but I was looking for something that would be easy to ready yet look different
