Sorry that it's been so long since the last post - I just did not seem to have much to share with you all. However, last weekend I did have a finish, and I've packed it away in my Christmas gift box. A lovely lady at work has been bringing me bread all year. It's the leftover bread from Brumby's - she has a neighbour who brings it home and gives it to her. She knows that I have two boys that will demolish it all, and that last year was particularly tight financially. So this year, I decided to make her a Christmas Table runner to say thank you for all her blessings this year. I had a go at this pattern (found in one of the 300+ magazines that are still littering my loungeroom) It was quite simple to follow and I enjoyed making it. I did change the borders slightly, the original called for two sides to be edged with ric-rac, but I liked this version.
You can see the fabric I chose for the border and the backing here. The border fabric came from Denise's prize box, and sets the Christmas fabrics off so nicely.
On a completely different subject.... did you know Google Reader has a blog limit you can follow???? Oh my, I have to spend some time going through my list, deleting those who have dropped off the blogoverse, just so I can add some new exciting ones I find. How long will that take me???
A public reminder for those who have joined in my ornament exchange for 2010 - Please remember to post your ornament to your partner by 1st December!!! Post a picture of your ornament to your blog after your partner has received their gift!
