My Inner Grandma

Awhile back I wrote about working on my dining room and starting baby quilts. Here's the finished quilt:

I love the frogs with red lipstick and striped umbrellas. I finished the edges with a narrow red border to set it off. The fabric on both the front and back are lightweight fleece. I did put low loft batting between to layers to give it a little heft.
Note to self: stop letting kids play with the camera. Images are all fuzzy.

Here's another:

Though not my best work, I love the colors. The back is purple fleece, and again has a layer of low loft batting. Not enough to make it heavy, just give it a little substance.

Next is simply a tease:

A table runner I made for the dining room. Trust me, the colors look better in person.

I'm still waiting on the geneology info so I can complete the chart for the dining room.

Now, off to the gym.

Four miles waiting for me.

Thanks Kate, for prompting this post.

Hey Gretchen-

To answer your question, her mileage is pretty mellow right now, because she is a CPA and not training for anything... maybe 25-30 a week, but fast. She kicks my arse.

She'll really ramp that up when she trains for a marathon or an ultra.

Your quilts look cozy. I can't wait to get started. This Sunday I just went through all of my stuff trying to get organized and it was really fun. Thanks for posting this and say hello to your inner grandma for me.
