A Friday Finish!

My first finish for November! My BFF's birthday was this past Saturday and this was one of her gifts. I wanted to show it last Friday, but I didn't want to spoil the surprise! This table runner was a kit I bought from Connecting Threads. It was fairly easy to put together, but the applique and embroidery took me a lot longer than I thought it would. I tend to be a procrastinator when working on a deadline, and procrastination does not mesh well with hand embroidery! But, in the end, I got it done and even got it mailed to my friend in enough time to have it arrive on her birthday.

It is being held by my adorable 5 year old son, so please excuse the not-at-all-professional pics.

I have 3 quilts basted and waiting to be quilted, plus 3 other projects in various stages of piecing, so I hope to have a post full of finished quilts soon!

I'm linking up today with Finish It Up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts. Head over there & check out everyone's inspiring Friday finishes!
