Finally...a finished something.

The table runner is finished!

One small problem. I thought I had properly wrapped my brain around getting the binding to look mitered at the corners. I was wrong.

I'll have to figure it out before doing any more binding but I decided to leave it rather than frustrate myself to death. The buttons at the corners are supposed to cause you to not notice the cruddy binding job.

I have some friends coming by for a visit today so I won't get much of anything done except for some cooking. I'm going to get some pumpkin bread started in a few minutes because Melissa needs pumpkin bread ;-) (I know you're reading this lol). I'll also get some soup going in the crockpot. And my Mason needs cornbread with his soup.

On that note, I'll leave you with a picture of Alice, who is my sole kitchen companion at the moment. It's too early for the dog. She went back to bed. We're usually late sleepers. So at 7am it's just me and Alice.

I wish I could be your 7 am kitchen companion.
Your table runner looks even better than I imagined it would look.

Ptttthhhh....I have mitered corners on my rug....I would tell you how I did it, but I have no idea how I did it. It happens to be the only thing that went the way I thought it would.
Maybe Carrie will dop by and give us a mitered corner tutorial.

Wow, I love that runner!! So much work in it. It's really very beautiful.
Can I trade you a cranky toddler for a turtle?

I'm totally in for that trade!

I've been meaning to start a collection of toddlers. Unfortunately my uterus isn't cooperating.

Who knew I could trade turtles for them?! :-)

Isn't it a wonderful feeling to get something finished, especially when you have so much on the go. Your turtle looks like the perfect companion, it will listen to everything you say and not ask for anything in return.

This is gorgeous Dannielle! Your penny rug is beautiful too! I would be crying if I got food on one, they are so time consuming to make!
