    I have been making table runners for my church secret pal all year. Here is a link to the ones for January - October:
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-135506-1.htm

    The Christmas side is a kit from www.Stores.eBay.com/Jordans. Donna Jordan put it together.

    The November side is from a new line by Moda - Arboretum.

    I quilted it with monofiliment thread - I think that's what it's called. Really thin fishing line! I couldn't figure out what else to do without changing thread every few inches or distracting from the star.

    I've really enjoyed this project of making a runner every two months that was reversible for those two months. The really fun part was watching myself improve!

    I just have a stashlette - not bunches and bunches of fabric, but I have one tub where I have projects bagged in large baggies. The fabric needed and the pattern are all bagged together. THese have no time line - I just want to make them.

    THEN I have a crate on my worktable (that's actually the dining room table) where I put the next up baggies in the order I need to make them. Upcoming showers, Christmas, anything with a timeline. But since the next baggie isn't neeed until Christmas I also have a "just for fun" project in there just so I don't feel like I'm working. Makes sense to me!

    THe one I'm working on right now turned out to be pretty boring - luscious fabric, but no challenge to the blocks. So I'd make a few blocks, then whip up a pillowcase or two (well, really four!) Then more blocks, then finish a table runner. That sort of thing.

    Without this kind of plan I'm at a loss about what to work on next and I don't make nearly as much progress. Hopefully no deadlines will slip up on me this way, too.

    I wish I were mine, too! :)

    I've started collecting patterns and fabrics for a couple of more sets of these and one will be for me. I've really learned a lot from these little projects.
