Tablerunner & October Snapper

Wow! Thank you for all that stopped by here and commented on the Mermaids, you are all so sweet! I am very pleased that they are done, and that I don't have to bead any more at the moment :) I am giving them to my friend, who does know about them. I showed her last Thanksgiving, right before I had most of the stitching done on them, and she was really excited. Barbara, I laughed so hard when I read your comment, "she is going to faint!" She just might, knowing her :D

So for church Colleen has been teaching us how to make quilts, like you saw the block of the month quilt I've posted a few times. Now we are going to do seasonal items, taking 3 month intervals to do them. She chose a Christmas Tablerunner, and I sewed the top of mine altogether now. Sorry for the poor photos, the color just doesn't show up well :P

Also, I finished the October Bent Creek Snapper. Only two more to go! Woohoo!
I am really trying to decide what to do next. I want to finish The 4 Seasons SO badly, but I also want to start a new project, either the one that Katrina sent to me, or The Cape. You vote, tell me what you want to see me do, no matter which one I do, I'd be happy! :D
For the 4 Seasons, I have 4 motifs left to stitch....


Katrina sent me this off of my wishlist, all kitted up, it's adorable! I love it :)

And I have this all kitted up too, so... what to do!

Nice job on your runner topper. I love the trees. My choice - the lighthouse but then, I'm crazy about lighthouses. Your work is beautiful as always

I love your tablerunner...how sweet is that?!
And your snappers...those are sweet too! I wish I had all those, but I only have March Blows...when you get done...maybe we can set up a trade?
And you know how I feel about your 4 seasons...it's stunning!
I think both of the items you have kitted are beautiful...I think I'd pick Katrina's because its not solid Cross stitching and I bet you'd have it whipped out in no time!

Your table runner turned out very nice, I love your choice of fabrics:). I like all your projects but the one from Katrina speaks to me. Linda

Your table runner looks great! As for your next project, that's a hard one.... but my vote is for the lighthouse. I love lighthouses and that is such a bright and colorful design!

WOW! These are all super! I love the quilt and the Bent Creek piece!

Love the table runner, the fabrics are lovely.
As for what you stitch next....that's a tough choice...the lighthouse really caught my eye though! Happy stitching :)

That table runner is beautiful, even if the colors didn't photograph as well as you'd hoped. I keep planning to make a holiday table runner ... one of these years!

I love the lighthouse. Dianne recently did this one, and it's just so fun and lovely!

You should finish the 4 seasons because I stitched it and I know you will be soooooooo happy when it will be done. (if not, I like Katrina's kit)

The tablerunner is beautiful - I love the fabrics you've chosen for it. I love the lighthouse piece, but I vote for finishing 4 seasons!
