10 Days, 1 Project

Ten days left in the year, and I need one more finished project.  I have two table runner tops ready,
so how could I make them take longer?  By stippling!
The first top doesn't quite lay as flat as I would like it to, which made other machine-quilting methods a poor idea.  To add to the fun, I'm using polyester batting, which is a bit fluffier than the blends I've been using for free-motion quilting.  Not a high loft--not even I am crazy enough for that.  So far, it's going well, but as you can see, I have a LONG way to go.  Yep, good choice. 

There is a back-up plan:
 Another 1-row scarf.  I always try to keep a few gifts on-hand because no matter HOW carefully I plan, I always need one or two extra gifts, and the last scarf I finished has been gifted and is already being worn.  So, there is a fast, fairly mindless project for plan B.  And, of course, what I want to do is plan C, which is start an entirely NEW project which wouldn't have even the remotest chance of getting finished.  Because I am an idiot................
