More Scrappiness

The other day I was at Lowe's and bought this.
Then I added some of my scraps to it and came up with this.


I'm thinking I'll use it as a trivet; I'm just not sure if it's functionable as it is nylon rope wrapped in cotton fabric.  I would think it'd be fine, but I'll let you know if there's a fire in the house!

Yesterday was my half marathon day so I'm at home resting up today.  I'm a little sore, but feeling pretty good. 
This was last year's finish.  This was the photo I based my quilt on.
 This is yesterday's finish.
This is our travelling quilt.  For now, my AWESOME brother who ran with me both years will display it in his home.  It'll be inspiration for both of us to keep up our running!!
