The Highs :) and the Looooowwwws :( of Quilting

First...the "Highs" of quilting *happy dance*  :)

I finished two pillowcases to go with Em's Loveliness of Ladybugs quilt...her birthday is next month and I can't wait to see her reaction when she opens the package with it inside.  I found a cute white eyelet dust ruffle to put on her bed too.  I have one more set of pillowcases to make that are a little more subdued, but will match this quilt as well.

Now for the "Lows" of quilting (a.k.a. the pits)  :(

Remember my post, Two Strips Short of a Binding, where I was wondering if anyone had a strip or two of Lila Tueller Santorini fabric because I was a little more than a strip short to be able to bind the table runner?  Well I had found a sold-ish purple and wound up piecing it with the strip of Santorini that I had.  It turned out nicely, see?

So, why is this a "low" you ask?  Let me show you *sigh*

Just a little while ago, after I was done sewing for the day, I was putting away the scraps of ladybug fabric in my stash that is in the entertainment center (one of many stashes around the house) when a pile of fabric tipped over (think avalanche) and a big strip of fabric... Santorini...landed right at my feet.

I wanted to cry :( 

but then I looked at the table runner again

and I really like it the way it is :)
