A Reversible Table Runner and the Monday Link Up continues



I was happily surprised last week at the response to this project after I posted a peek of the WIP.   This is one of the few projects I have made with a specific recipient in mind - well, if you don't count the things I make for my kids!



I really do find it way more stressful to make gifts when I know they are gifts.  I seriously think I unpicked ten times the seams I usually do!

It is a table runner.


And it is reversible!

Well, kind of - I had decided to have my two older girls personalize the back of the runner with an acrostic poem - something we thought the recipient would appreciate.  We used stamps to stamp the name they call her and then they each wrote their poems and signed their names.  I still think it was a good idea in theory but in reality, I'm not happy with the result.  But my husband and kids disagree - they think it looks great - so I kept it and just hope that the recipient agrees with them (which considering her relation to them, she probably will!)

I'm linking to Tuesdays at the Table.

Plum and June

And even though the blog hop is over, the Monday link up continues (at least for now!)  Just link up a sewing/quilting post, visit each other, promote the link up with a text link or the button on my sidebar and when the link tool asks for your name, write your favorite slow cooker dish?

  4. It is a really lovely table runner. You have inspired me to make one for me. I have some Christmas fabric that I didn't know what to make with them and when I saw your star table runner my Christmas fabric came to mind. Thanks for the inspiration.
