A finish, a kinda finish & a giveaway

It's been a while since I've posted a good finish but this one I can post with all the satisfaction in the
world.  A little over two year's ago, I gave my mom a reversible table runner for St Patty's Day and Easter.  She commented last year she wanted runners for the "rest of the year".  So onto my to do list these went.

Today, I've finished the last runners. I was hoping to have them sent to her by Mom's Day but no go. She'll get them soon. So here they all are:
Christmas 1
Christmas 2
Valentine's Day
St. Patrick's Day
Memorial Day/July 4th/Labor Day
Now let me talk about my "kinda finish" this is regarding the unfinished I've been working on as part of my 6 month challenge (see my Myra's PhD challenge button on my sidebar). I've been diligently working these although I haven't been able to post finishes just yet but I'm almost there!  Anyway, one of them I realized, I just have to let go of and because of that, I realized it counts as a finish.

The following pattern and fabric is free to the first person who comments they want it.  A couple notes (and why I'm giving it up). I started this a while ago and cut all the pieces. While piecing, I realized I mis-cut some borders/sashing (at least).  It can still make a great quilt or couple wall hangings but I just don't have any desire to rework the layout from the pattern to accomodate my cutting. There is still plenty of fabric, as you can see in the photo, it's just not for me.  So, if you want it (even if you are going to piece it up to different quilts, pillows or bags) speak up and I'll send it along. I'll need your email so I can contact you for an address.
And there you have it.  Happy Friday everyone.

Cheers, Beck

I would love to win this giveaway since my hubby, dad, and brothers are all into wildlife and love deer and elk especially. I'm sure I'd get lots of good use out of it.

Love the table runner idea for special occasions. Maybe I should do that for my house...Im sure your Mom will love them.

We Aussies arent much for seasonal decorating except at Christmas. (We're lazy I think) but I do like the idea of the table runners.

Im just about to finish my 4th and last PhD . Cant wait to see yours.
