A Mini Finish & A List

Hello!  Wow, is it ever starting to warm up here!  Spring has definitely sprung and all I want to do is soak it up.  How's the weather for you?

I had a burst of sewing a couple of weeks ago and I made this little table topper which can also be a mini wall hanging.

It is slightly different from the pattern for a table runner by Sherri McConnell.  I made it square for this little table and so it could be hung later.  I used a 2.5" Moda mini charm pack called Printemps by 3Sisters and some Kona Bone and finished with a binding I had on hand.

This was fun because it only took a couple of hours.  Currently it sits on the table in the entry.

Since last quarter of the Finish Along went so well for me, I thought I would try it again.  This time I am going to be a bit more ambitious.  First quarter I only had two items that I added to my list but for this second quarter I'm going for four!

1.  Farmers Wife.  I'm thinking I will just use the blocks I have currently made and then if I need a few more I'll just make them really quick.  This has been a WIP for far too long.

2.  Bear's Paws and 7-grid chain for Chris.  I made one block almost 2 years ago.  After a bit more fabric arrives I will have the pieces all cut up and ready to sew.

3.  Trip Around The World.  I think this will end up being a center and I will add lots of borders to it.

4.  This ripple that I started about 5(?) years ago.  Having this as a WIP still is just embarrassing!

*Edited to add a 5th item!

5.  Finish this embroidery that was started as a Valentine project.  Once the embroidery is complete I don't know what to do with it, though!

That is my list and I'm going to do my very best to finish these projects!  I think I can...I think I can...

Linking up my little mini to Fabric Tuesday!  And my list to the Finish Along at The Littlest Thistle!  Enjoy the day and God Bless!
