SECOND CHRISTMAS GIFT DONE....
The island runner for my folks and aunt is done! I'm loving it, but still a bit disappointed. I have a very definite wave on the edge, toward the far end. I have not pressed it yet, but I am sure the wave will not go away much. Apparently my cutting was off. I had some difficulty with the binding, I was WAY shorter than I expected it to be and had to piece it quite a bit to get it long enough. I am wondering if that is part of the problem. UPDATE: I put some heavy books on the runner, figuring I would leave them there until I starch it and iron it another day. The waves have disappeared! Woohoo. I will still press it nice before I wrap it. Today I am too beat. I pushed myself WAY too hard today and I feel horrible. But that was the last of the "have to get done" for Christmas gifts. I still want to work on J's quilt, but it is highly unlikely it will get done by the holiday.
Off to take a single Motrin and lie down.
