Have you ever had one of those projects that you completely forgot about it and it has a deadline? Well you don't completely forget about it. Maybe you just don't put it at the top of the priority list. It's still really important but you just got...squirrel! You know, something like that. Luckily for me, while moving my piles around, I uncovered the tote this was hiding in and remember it. Above are signature blocks members of the guild signed for a secret project that I agreed to turn into a wall hanging. My dead line is June, but I want to be finished way before then. Quilter's good intentions...wink, wink. Hopefully, I will have them all sewn up before the weekend ends.

So with all the travel last weekend, not much sewing happened in our house. I wanted to share with you David's current project because I am in LOVE with it.
So what were you guys up to last week? Let me show you. Chris at Chris Knits, was busy finishing up a fun table runner for Easter. She started this little project before taking a vacation and got right back to it after the fun in the sun was over. I think that deserves some recognition. I know I have a bad tendency after a break to not go back, just start a new project. But, Chris hopped right back to it.
Now she has this bright fun piece to share with her family just in time for the Easter holiday! Egg-celent job, Chris!
I also wanted to mention Wendy at Pieceful Thoughts of My Quilting Life and her Lost Woods Batik Table Runner.
She pieced this beautiful table runner using left over blocks from another project. I know those spinning strips brings back many childhood memories of playing in the woods for me and seeing the trees gently blowing above your head. I applaud Wendy because after piecing them together she had to make a decision; table runner, bag or pillow? I know for me, I can waste a whole lot of time with debates like this, or even abandon a project because of it. Wendy, made the decision of table runner and quilted on. I'm going to take a lesson from this and just keep quilting myself. Congrats on your beautiful finish, Wendy!
So now it's your turn. What have you been up to this week? Are you looking around your sewing room for your abandoned projects like a toddlers on an egg hunt? Or maybe you are stashing them in corners like the exhausted parents, praying that the kiddos find them all later. Whatever the case, link up! Let's celebrate some finishes and cheer each other on as we sew toward finishes.
