    OK, I'm still working on mine! This cold I've had has been kicking my butt. I sit down and work for 10 minutes, and I'm too tired to see straight, so I've been going to bed early. But I *have* been working on it, I promise!! And I WILL finish it this weekend!! My goal is to ship on MONDAY!!

    MamaHauser - very pretty table runner - is that piping around the outside border?

    I have the last little bit of a cough hanging on from being sick myself. It's that time of year! Take care of you. The swap can wait until after Christmas. Rest up and enjoy the holidays.

    I used this tutorial - it's a "magic" binding that creates a contrast flange.

    http://www.52quilts.com/2012/05/tues...c-binding.html

    I'm totally sold on the technique. I HATE hand binding, especially for gifts because I always worry that the quilt will get the binding torn or something.

    Who gave me their germs? I got to sleep wonderful wonderful sleep last night, after I finished my math final, and woke up feeling like crap. felt better during my workout but then the minute I stopped, back to feeling like crap. I'm soooooooo glad I'm back to my normal shift again. Morning shift is completely detrimental to my health.

    OOPS, I mailed my table runner on Thursday but forgot to get a DC. I mailed it from home and was not thinking clearly. If I do not hear anything in a week or so I will mail another and will have learned to slow down and think. What a concept!!!!

    MamaHauser, I have used that binding several times and like it too! I've never machine sewn it though, always hand sew the binding. Have you ever used this on a circular pattern or just a square edged quilt or runner?

    Binding is my worst part of quilting. If I could find someone near me who was really good at it and loved it, who had some other part they weren't as good at that we could trade out, I'd be turning quilted things out like crazy.

    I am not great at binding but its relaxing. It was keeping me busy in dialysis kinda stuck there so binding was an easy hand toy. I like that binding too going to check out your video and see if its something I could do. always nice to learn something new

    so many of you are sooo fast! I have one down one to go but still stuck on this quilt job. I have to get this cup of coffee into me before I continue. I need five cups but that aint going to happen.. For the record: I only take rejection medications which alas do not hyper me up. I am CRAZY ALL BY MYSELF who needs meds??? I either am thrilled I have lots of energy or ..pooped out. Not much medium. so next time you think I am whacked..well its just me not the caffeine. ok stalled enough time to get back to that machine. Finish it and I canmake that second tablerunner. I have pulled my fabrics for it. kick my butt in gear would you guys?
    oh Loup how is it going? you said you were working on yours.. any sneak peaks????

    I'm not close to you, but I don't mind binding at all. If I'm watching TV at night, I'm doing binding too! How are you at paper piecing those pineapple blocks???

    Jaba, I've never tried the pineapple blocks before, but when I get back after Christmas I'll try it and see! That might just be my next set of placemats! When we're watching TV, my boyfriend always likes it dark (and there's nowhere for a lamp by the couch because it's in the middle of the room, the only place it'll fit in this living room) so I can't work on anything else. I usually do my binding on the machine, but no matter how perfectly I line up front and back when I've turned it to the front, it's always off on the back on at least part of it. I'm not sure I have the patience to sit and bind by hand without something else going on. I usually listen to either podcasts of books or my DJ friend's online channel while I sew or do handwork.

    Good morning Good morning! I am doing a happy dance. You know the one both hands together looks like your rowing in a circular motion? I am yeah oh yeah happy dancing! I finished my mystery train quilt it leaves home today and I did it took all day and all night finished after midnite last nite. I am beyond happy. Its so not perfect but its complete and only a half embarassment (back is slightly off crooked argh!) I amwhipping up some apricot brandy white chocolate almond biscotti today any takers? These are my favorite Christmas cookies. oh so good. (plus you get a whole bunch of cookies without having to open and close that oven a hundred times!)

    Oh, Brat, those cookies sound heavenly! I've never had those, but they're making my tummy rumble! Surely you're going to share?? hehe

    I *did* work on my runner... got my frog-stitiching done, broke my ripper even! I'll finish it up probably tonight. I'll take a sneak photo tonight as well. I was hoping to have it shipping out today, but I got... distracted. On the bright side, I did get another baby quilt completely done, and a t-shirt quilt top made for my son! LOL.

    Sneak-photos WILL follow tonight!

    Ok.. now that classes are officially done, I can think about working on my table topper. woohoo. So I ended both classes with high A's. We don't get A+'s but they would be A+'s so that gives me an increase in my GPA. Woohoo. Goes from 3.81 to 3.86. *does a little dance* Yes yes I am a geek/nerd. That GPA would be higher if it weren't for that evil evil haunting B+ in Chemistry. *scowl* That should have been an A as well.. stupid.... ok.. *breathe* let it go.. moving on..

    I'm sick! I swear, morning shift is detrimental to my health. I get no sleep, I'm too tired to prepare nutritional meals so I eat junk food from vending machines, I'm too tired to exercise so I don't do that, or anything else that requires more movement than drooling, I'm grouchy and stabby, I injure myself more cause I'm either dazed, or too tired to use proper form, and the germy spawn of the germy trainer spread their germs to me. ugh. Well.. I hope they're happy, since they make it a choice between being sick or getting fired, I will be re-spreading those germs around the workplace.

    oh dear near death experience? did you actually venture out to a STORE this close to Christmas? OMG what happened were you just not thinking? stay home. Better for your health girl! thats why they invented the internet. order away!

    I wanted to share something I received in the mail from Jaba. A suprise Christmas package that held many goodies but one especially close to my heart. She put so much time and love into making this for me and we absolutely love it. I had it on the table with greens and red ornaments and antlers but took everything off to show you how cool this is. It reminds me of my turkey feathers and on the back fish! my husband fishes two days out of every week and we end up with a freezer so full of fish and no one to gift them to. So Jan kindly sent me MORE FISH! thank you so much Jan this is the coolest thing ever. I am making my second tablerunner and no its not as cool as this is.
