Made It!!!!!!!!!!

I was beginning to wonder, but I got a finish.
It will serve as a Di's Fall Sew-in Club and Joy's Finishing Stitches.
Cause you both love me right?????
So here is my Fall UFO table runner.
I had to find new backing for it and I had accidentally used up all of the fabric that I needed for the binding, so it became extra colorful. I like the finished product and it is one less thing in my UFO pile. Yippee!!!!
It has not been a stellar month of finishes, but we have been doing a wee bit of home improvements.
August will be better.

Happy Chocolate Day!!!

I didn't make that up honest!!!
So everyone indulge--it's a celebration. Just don't take it outside because this is what it is doing out there:
For those of you who deal in Celsius, that's around 41. Yucky!!!
I am behind in my blogging, naughty me!
My birthday got stretched out a lot. I have gotten more packages from everywhere.
Joy sent me these little goodies:
which of course will lead to needing matching bits. Fun stuff!!!!
And Di sent me a package full of goodies.
These pretty vintage aprons:
and nice sharp scissors and lots of patterns to keep me very, very busy!!!!
and Mom gave me these nice bright fat quarters:
and of course I treated myself to a few more:
and more tomorrow. I need to prove that I have actually done something besides get more fabric.
I am caught up on my jelly roll blocks:
and Block#10
and I have been busy unpicking a fall table runner for Di's fall finish challenge. This is the one I hope to finish this month at least. 
I didn't like the way I started quilting it, so I threw it in a pile. Now I am going to get it finished!!!!
And pop over and join Joy's challenge to finish stuff that has been sitting around awhile.
I have a huge pile to work on for this one. 
And I still have to start making Christmas decorations--oh my--I think I am challenge challenged!!!!!!!!!!!!
Stay cool everyone.
