Monday Makers! #17

I hope you had a wonderful week. Mine was filled with happy pre-Christmas gatherings with friends and fellow quilty guild members.

My local modern quilt guild came together for Christmas drinks and some quilty chat last Monday. It was such a lovely and relaxing night. We ate, drank, chatted and exchanged some gifts too. Every guild member brought a gift to the value of $10 of quilty goods. We didn't allocate a person before hand; instead, each member had a lucky dip which made it even more fun. I received a super cute, super mini quilt and a spool of white Aurifil thread which I needed so much since I ran out of mine on the very same day!
Isn't it the cutest Christmas tree!
There was another surprise waiting for me...A few weeks ago, my guild had an exhibition and I joined the exhibition with three quilts. Apparently, there was a lucky door prize and I won it!!
I might have squeaked a bit when I was presented the box of 10 spools of Aurifil thread- Folk Story by Sarah Fielke! I love, love , love those colours!

Now to Monday Makers!
Today I have started working on my table runner which I hope I will finish before Christmas! You can see the table runner I made for the last Christmas here.
These will go on an ash coloured background. I didn't really plan how big I want it to be; I am playing by ear. Hopefully it will turn out something nice LOL.

Are you ready to show me your finishes from last week and the new projects you are starting today?
Here are the linky rules: 
1. Your project can be anything you start on that Monday as long as it makes you move and be active and creative: a new quilt, a knitting project, scrap booking, cross-stitching, baking-we don't mind yummy recipes!, a gardening project, painting your house!, tidying up the pantry!...This is your Monday and you are the maker of the day!
2. Grab the button from the side bar- DONE!!- or put a link back to me in your Monday post.
3. Click on "add your link" and just fill in the required areas.

6. Share the photos of your finished Monday projects in your next link up- I am hoping you will come back again!: Who doesn't love a sweet, finished project or a "before-after" photo?


  1. The mini you got is very cute, and congratulations on the Aurifil thread!

  2. Fun photos! Sweet little Christmas tree - and wow - last year's Christmas runner is gorgeous - I'm sure the new one will be equally lovely! I love orange and red (or orange and pink) together - it's untraditional so it makes you look twice - I like that in a colour combo :D Congrats on your thread win - gorgeous bright colours!

  3. That is really cute Christmas tree!
