A New Home

Remember me talking about this guy last week?

About how I wanted to use him with the other Fall decor I'd made? And how I didn't know where to put him? Well, I found a home for him today.

This is a really quick and simple table Jake made up for us one afternoon (I'm pretty sure it had something to do with all my complaining that there was nowhere to put my drink).  I was wiping it down today and thought how nicely this runner would work here.  It will fit in with perfectly with all the other runners since it has the same fabrics, but won't stick out like a sore thumb since it has squares instead of triangles.

Aiden told me he really likes it and he's glad I put it there so he has something nice to put his cup on now.  He was quite sad at the removal of the Halloween mug rugs, so I was glad this cheered him up so nicely.  Now, to get moving on a Christmas runner for this table...

I also managed to get all these 4.5" squares cut out for one of the boys Christmas quilts.  The other one's quilt  top is finished (I'll have to get some pictures of that soon!) and waiting to be quilted.  I decided to use a different style block for this quilt.  The fabrics for both the quilts are all scraps and little pieces I've saved and collected over the years.  Some of them were even found at garage sales or given to me by friends/family that no longer had use for them.  

I can't wait to get started on this one.  If I finish this one soon and manage to get them both quilted and bound before the holidays, I will be quite impressed with myself.  Just sayin'.
