    This is sort of a table runner I made from charm squares. If you've never used these, they're awesome! I love this because of all the white in it. I have absolutely no use for it, so I suppose I'll give it away at some point!

    The other pic is a little wallhanging I made for a buddy. These are the kinds of projects I do to distract myself from the big UFOs that I don't feel like working on!

    Oooh, I really love the charm squares and white! Pretty and bright! I make things I don't need or use too! It's just fun to create! Your heart wall hanging is pretty too.

    I love both of them. All the charms are so cute and look great against the white fabric. The brown and blue in the wall hanging look great too! Defiantly inspirational!

    Terri, you should be careful what you say--I have a whole houseful of stuff I'd like to get rid of, and not all of it is quilts! Besides, I've seen some of your work, and you're perfectly capable of creating your own works of art!

    Oh, sorry...I only accept quilts/fabrics stuffs. I have enough of my own junk I need to get rid of. lol
    Actually, I don't have to get rid of things. When we moved in here and hubby finally got here, we made tons of trips in the van and truck to Salvation Army store. They LOVED our donations. I would tell them what what was and if it was REALLY used or gently used. Had an icecream maker that didn't even make it into the store! lol

    Right now I have "quilters block". I want to make something, but have no clue what to make.

    In that case, it's all about table runners! They only take a day or so to make, and if you can't find a use for them, somebody else can! Here's an idea--why don't I send you some of my UFos and you could just finish them up for me! I have a list as long as my arm of stuff I want to start, but I can't do it until I've finished up some of the old stuff.

    Besides, it would cost a fortune to ship all the junk in my house to Guam. I have a 22-year-old daughter who's still living at home I'd sometimes like to get rid of for a little while, though!

    LOL!!

    Well, I do have a quilt top that needs to be batted and backed. I could do that. Plus, I have a tote I was making that was kicking my butt, so I put it all in a shoebox and set it aside. I could tackle that again.
    I could be cleaning my upstairs livingroom. Need to move the couches around so when oldest gets here, they can unfold the sofa couch and not worry about people having to climb over them when they come down the stairs.........sigh............

    Harmony:
    I can send you my addy and you can send me your table thingy and your wall thingy! :wink: Both are just lovely and the table covering gave me a great idea. When my idea comes to fruition, I'll post a picture! Thanks for the motivation.

    The instructions on the table thing say it was started as a baby quilt, and she made it with 30's prints. But it reminded her of her grandmother's housedresses, so she wanted to make it for her table.

    Did I guess right? Are you going to make a baby quilt????

    I love both of them! And to think you do these only as distractions! They're lovely!
