Crafty Christmas mail

My new table runner arrived in the mail today and my son met me at the door this afternoon with the parcel in his hot little hands. He couldn't wait to see what was inside and neither could I.
My partner was Pennywiggle and she also made my lovely tree quilt in the recent doll quilt swap and we are very lucky to get this parcel from her as well!

The front is a disappering 9 patch design in aqua, red and green christmas prints.

And look at the back! She has made it reversible, and it looks just as great as the front.

As an extra, she has bound and quilted the 'extra' block into a mini quilt and it is the perfect size to use as a table center or a pot mat.

Both quilts were labelled with very cute labels so I'll remember who made them for me and why.

Isn't this a lovely pre-christmas surprise!

Thanks Denni - we love them and they will be sure to get lots of use.

Table runner finished and in the post.

Here is a peek of the completed table runner for the latest EB swap.

It is in the post and my partner should recieve it early next week, floods permitting ;)

Following the tradition I seem to have started, there are several more of these in various stages of completion. One is a completed top, one needs borders and a third is still just a pile of squares stacked neatly beside the sewing machine. Wonder if they will simply join the uncompleted pile of projects that is sitting quietly, waiting for me to get around to finishing them all?
