Another check book cover and ...

Couldn't post this picture earlier in case my sister visited the blog. Didn't want her seeing what she was getting in the mail that she didn't know about ... lol Well, it got delivered to her today so now can post the picture. She called to let me know she got a surprise today. Know the post office said she would get it either today or tomorrow. Glad she got it today, though. She seemed to be thrilled with it. It would have gotten to her a lot sooner but when I finished it and put it in envelope Jimbo came down sick so couldn't ask him to mail it for me. Had to wait until he felt better. Better late than never ... haha

After finishing that and still in sewing mode I went to work on a table runner for my friend Eddie. It's a "quilt as you go" pattern from G. E. Designs called Madison Square. Since Halloween is just around the bend did it with Halloween fabric. Finished putting the binding on last night and took it to work with me today. At an appropriate morning hour called her from work and asked if she was coming to the store ... lol Am sure that peaked her interest. The front ain't all that bad but man, I managed to get a dang pucker on the back side. Didn't even notice the boo-boo until putting the binding on. Oh, well, back side is suppose to always be down and out of sight ... lmao!
