Table toppers/table runners
Can you tell I'm not too into football? Here we are in the middle of the SuperBowl and I'm blogging! I have a table runner in progress that's supposed to look like apples. I'm doing some fairly detailed hand quilting in the large solid areas, but it's a tone on tone cream background and cream colored thread, so I'm not sure it's going to show up enough to warrant the time it's taking. And those purple disappearing marking pens? They're great, but don't mark more than you are going to stitch in one sitting, because they do truly disappear! (Isn't it funny how the lessons you learn the hard way are the ones that really stick with you?!!) The square table topper is one I made a couple of months ago. I made a runner for my china cupboard as well, but there's too much stuff on it to photograph it. Someday everything will be in it's place, but until then, I don't/can't sweat the small stuff. Life's too short!
