Then this little guy ran over to the tree and got up to the broken off branch right outside my kitchen window and watched me eat lunch.

I finished the binding last night. I was calculating the hours on this 15.5" x 36.5" table runner. It took 2 hours to hand sew the binding (I'm fussy about how the stitches look), a little under 2 hours of machine quilting with that 3/8" grid, and I estimated that the top probably took at least 2 hours. That doesn't take into consideration any of the time pulling the fabrics to make it. So with a minimum of 6 hours in it and about 1 yard of fabric plus batting and thread, what do you think it should sell for? Or the better question what would you be willing to pay for something like this? These are the questions I ask myself every time I finish something that I might consider selling.I looked out the kitchen window to check the bird feeders, and count them, 6 furry creatures that don't look like birds to me! Two are hanging onto the feeders and being sloppy so they feed all of the ones on the ground too. A flock of sparrow did come a little later and just blended right in with the squirrels. Oh, and the feeder on the right is squirrel-proof. Ha!
