One Thing, One Week

First a BIG Hello! to those of you who have been reading here for awhile now -- you have given me the drive and motivation to keep sharing my crazy happy passions here.  You make it so much fun!

Also, a Happy Hello! to those of you who are just joining and finding this happy little spot of the web.  I'm so glad you could make it and I look forward to getting to know you! 

And you know, speaking of motivation, lately I have been finding motivation all over my reading list.  This one in particular has pinched me to dive into and tackle my creative projects.  One Thing, One Week is hosted by Amy at Amy's Creative Side.  It's a simple challenge.  Proclaim that you will do one thing toward your creative goals and accomplish it in one week.  Simple, right?

I said here, "Motivation is good! My goal is to at least start a table runner and a few mug rugs for gifts!"

Challenge Results

Part I - Table Runner
In one week, I have dreamt up, designed, cut, pieced, quilted, and almost finished the binding on an amazing table runner for someone who shall not be named.

I just adore the girly fabrics I got to play with and coordinate for this particular runner. 

The quilting on this piece also went relatively smooth.  I am really becoming a believer in putting in a fresh needle to tackle quilting!

I'm sorry I can't share a totally finished project picture yet, as it might ruin the surprise for a certain someone who may unwrap a future giftie -- just saying.  After Christmas, this space is going to be jam packed with lots of finished projects to talk about!!

Part I of the challenge -- success!!

Part II - Mug Rugs

I said I wanted to start some mug rugs.  And I have to admit that other than some light designing I haven't really done that one yet. 

But.  there is always a but!

I did finish and gift the Plaidly Pocket Quilt I have been telling you about here, here, and here.

I really couldn't be prouder with how it turned out and the reaction it got!  I will do a full unveiling tomorrow!
