Yes, I was pretty happy yesterday because I finished a Christmas table runner that I
started 3 years ago! I'm so happy to finish an uncompleted project.
This was a pretty simple runner - I bought a selection of Christmassy fabrics off the market at a very reasonable price and literally cut rectangular/square shapes from the fabric and sewed together in a very rough and ready patchwork fashion.
My aim was then to quilt it but that went disastrously wrong and I ended up unpicking all the quilting stitches and I finally decided on just using an old flannelette sheet as wadding to give it a bit of body and folded the plain green backing fabric over to the top side to act as an edging.
Please don't look too closely as the edges are not straight!
It's quite long!
It's far from perfect but it will brighten up our table and it is FINISHED - YAY!
I also finished four cross stitched Christmas cards - two of which are now winging their way to far corners of the globe! The other two are staying nearer to home.
And my final completed project for now was this little cross stitch kit purchased from Hobbycraft, I think last year, which I made up into a little hanging ornament with a few added embellishments.
I enjoyed making this so think I may make a detour home from work one evening this week and call in at Hobbycraft to see if they have any other little kits of interest.
I am enjoying all the project ideas I see bloggers sharing on line - it gives me so much inspiration.
I hope your Christmas project making is going well - have a good week
