Val's birthday is next week. My goal is to make her a table runner and actually get it to her before her birthday. The plan is for it to be a nine patch around 50 something inches long. I had a little time last night to cut out the strips and sew a few together. If I can make a little progress throughout the week I should be able to finish it over the weekend. Work really does get in the way of crafting. Although I probably couldn't afford craft projects if I didn't work. Somewhere there should be a happy medium but I haven't found it yet.
