A good question, Julie. Most of them go as birthday or other occasions presents to family and friends. The latest Easter towel- the one in the photo-, for example, is a birthday present to a colleague. The Easter tablerunner(with stitched corners)is already at my Daughter's -it was stitched for their kitchen table. As Ukraine celebrates Easter for 3 days, I did manage to give it away in time- yesterday(last day of Easter) SIL came and collected it after my call. I enjoy giving away my stitchings- first of all because even a cat likes a nice word, right? Plus, there are so many things stitched by me among the people that even if I wanted to be forgotten, there is no chance- Easter towels, Easter napkins, tablerunners and tablecloths live longer than one generation, and normally families do have grandma's stitchings. So it is all my selfishness, as psychologists explain our so called altruism.

Last night's finish of cross stitching of the first end of the runner. I started the second design immediately as backstitch needs sunshine. According to Murphy's law, the weather forecast for tomorrow is rain and more rain.
As of last night. All the cross stitching is done on both the tablerunners. Now the wording and back stitch. Need both to be finished, washed and ironed by the end of this month. The small runner in its full length:
Some arythmetics: The first tablerunner took me roughly 22 days( April 21- May 13) minus Sundays as they are stitching-free), the second- 25 days (May 14 - 8th of June) as it was obviously harder on my eyes on the 14ct Aida.
