New Finishes ....Old UFO's

At long last I finished my oldest UFO.
This candle wick cushion has been in
the works for a very long time.
 My guess is I started close to 20 years ago.
Found it while cleaning and I just knew there
was a fat 1/4 some where that would match.
So here it is all done and it even goes with my
living room decor.. who would of thought.
 Just in time for summer too.
I also finished this table runner for my daughter in law.
She loves sunflowers, so this UFO was perfect for
 the new kitchen she and my son just finished.
I started the center block last school year
from a print used in math class. Thought it
 was unique so I copied the print onto
 fabric to make a runner or wall hanging .
Never got any farther than the printer until now.  
I thought the prairie points fit well with the sunflower design. 
She was pleased with the effect.

Wow I won....

Just thought I'd post a pic of the what I won
in the drawing that Rececca Dipple,  (Purpled2)
had on her blog. The sassy ladies are so cute.
 Can't wait to make something with them.
I have a few ideas already...
I was so excited when I won , being that I am
 not the lucky type at all. It was a real suprise.

Whats new ...

Been busy but managed to get a few things done.
First up are the 2 bags I made for my daughters coworker.
She sent the fabric & the denim , so I didn't need to choose.
My favorite is the John Deere in brown & pink. .
It is a great way to recycle old denim.

Next is my latest mystery BOM for May.
It is part of the scrap bag blocks I am doing
with the  ladies at Suzie's Quilt shop.
It is great fun to anticipate what the new block
 and colors will be.

And last but not least is the new cover for
my Jannie (my Janome 6600).  I thought it was
 about time she had a cloth cover. She is 8 months
 old already. The vinyl one was  just too plain.
I think she looks  much better now...
