SCRAPS NO, RUNNERS YES

As i sat in the sewing room yesterday i saw a small pile of scrap and decided to do something with it rather than cut it up for strings...sooo i made these...

all from the scrap from a bigger project except the backs...the light color on the smaller one is a beige not white...i didn't have enough of the red to use on it...

i know i havent posted in a few days but i have been sewing up a storm...working on first one project then another....they will probably all get done at once doing it this way lol....one of the things i am working on is the yellow background, courthouse steps...i have it ready for sewing down the binding....maybe later tonight while watching tv....

i have 2 other runners to quilt and finish too....to tired of quilting at the moment or i could work on them now....i have a piece of fabric in the laundry waiting for the dryer then iron and it can be put away off the dining chair...

i also worked on another challenge from a quilt group and finished it but cant show it yet...and lo and behold i joined another challenge....getting original makes my brain work hard lol but so far the end results seem to be ok....

i have 3 small quilts that i want to get finished that are ufos and i had to order batts again....i go through them very fast anymore...and of course my stack of batt bits is getting bigger too but i try to keep it in check by seaming them to be better used.....i cant work on those quilts probably till next week sometime....

i might have the modern pastel quilt that i just finished sold soon....a lady would like to have it who visited here last week and she wanted to think about it and she seems very interested....more on this later, maybe....

i thought i was getting a cold too this week but so far just a nose drip now and then and a sneeze....i think it could be lint from the fabric or DUST lol....i hope no bugs found me...been dodging a lot of people places so maybe i wont get the flu...

i think that is about it for now ...and a hot cup of coffee is where i am headed right now....more later....
