Christmas WIP Wednesday!!!

I have been working on a table runner and 2 wall hangings as presents for Christmas - here are my "in progress" pictures:

The table runner was made using a free pattern I found on the internet.  If you click here you can download their PDF of the pattern:   

The blocks are called "flying stars" because they are made with three dimensional flying geese. Each of the red star points are actually folded triangles and they are not sewn down.  In order to understand how its done, you best go to the directions and read them.  Click here.

I modified it a little so that it would fit on the coffee table of the person I am giving it to for Christmas :)

I don't have any pictures of the tiny wall hangings in progress - only finished:

Just for the fun of it, here are some pictures of my sunroom/sewing studio taken today:

I have 2 more sewing projects left for Christmas, but they aren't needed till after Christmas - phew!  
Need to take the night off cause the rest of the week I'll be cooking and baking!!

Thanks for visiting - Come back again soon, I'll be posting pictures of our all dressed up for Christmas.
