Table Runner Over and Out

It's done! I finally finished all the hand quilting on the table runner. It is not perfect, so don't look close, but I think it has come up okay for a first timer. The only problem I face now is trying to work out which table to run it on! I actually wish I had a chest of drawers in my room which I could put it on, then arrange my jewellery on top of. That would be the ideal location. Until then, I will leave it on the coffee table in my lounge room so I can stare at it when I get bored.

I think I may have also worked out what I want to do next....another completely new project of course (the ones waiting in the wings can wait a bit longer!). Last night I was looking at the Cinderberry Stitches blog and got really excited about two patterns...

Hopefully I can manage to get hold of one of them (maybe at the Stitches and Craft show next weekend?!?!) and make them. I find the stitcheries really cute.

Onto books now, and I just managed to pick up the next selection for my Book Club. We are reading Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides....

I will start on it once I have finished reading The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold. Can't wait to see the movie adaptation of it.


  1. Looks fantastic chick! I especially like the flowers in circles at each end. You should be really proud of that.

  2. The runner looks great, very clever.......
    And I like both those new projects, The first one looks like it will keep you very busy, lol.
