First Finish for 2012

Happy new year to all. This is my first UFO finish for 2012 & I hope that this year I will get through the other 19 UFO's on my list. I joined this site last year but as my sewing room was so disorganised I was never able to get in and get to any project. This year that changes. I am in the process of sorting out my sewing room to make it a place that encourages me to go in & sew. I still have a way to go but I am getting there.

What I have found is a basket of small items in various stages on progress. So I am starting in there & am starting with the items with the least amount of work to finish, I had two table runners that just needed binding, so I finished this table runner at 11.15 last night. It was started 2 years ago, the plan was for it to go into the birthday box. The other table runner has a self binding so the plan is to start the hand sewing tonight, it's a much larger runner that the purple "Violetta" runner so is likely to take me two night to finish. but finish it I will and hope to have a piccy to post on Thursday or Friday.

I am thinking of making one of these runners a giveaway on my blog (the other runner is from the "Fig & plum" range).

Happy UFO'ing

That table runner is just gorgeous, the colours are all my favourites! I hope you get into your sewing room more often now that it's more organised. And if you have a giveaway on your blog, please post a link!
I love giveaways!!!

Very pretty and well done.. I like the idea of starting with some projects that have only a little bit to do... makes for some quick finishes....

Looks great! Finishing a couple projects that only need a bit of work is a great idea. Keeps you motivated.
