I finished something!!

Yeeey- I haven't had a lot of sewing time the last couple of weeks, but I did make this cute tablerunner from a  book called Runners, Etc. from Gathering Friends.  We carry their books at the shop, and they are really nice- lots of pretty table runners and table toppers.

And last week I finished this quilt using my X-blocks ruler. The border is pieced using the leftovers from trimming the blocks- pretty neat! This is a nice throw size, and of course it "lives" at the shop- for now.... 
Today I am heading south to Oslo to visit my brother and his girlfriend for a couple of days.  I am taking a sewing machine repair course the next two days, so it will be nice to stay with them and catch up :-)  I am really excited about the course, and a little bit scared... It should be fun though!
Hope your days are filled with sunshine and some sewing!
Thank you for stopping by!
