'Charmed I'm Sure' Table Runner... Finished!

So glad to finally be able to share these pics... the weather has been so dull here most of the week, so I couldn't get good pics... I finished the bind stitching last weekend...

"Charmed, I'm Sure" table runner - from Leanne's House - Leanne Beasley.
Fabrics are Kate Spain 'Honey Honey'.
I must confess to a major ♥♥♥ for these fabrics, totally!
The pink bind looks great & I'm happy with the thread colour I used for the stitcheries. They are the first ever half-square triangles I made, & (amazingly)most of them are accurate.
Thank goodness we have such a big table - the runner measures a whopping 25in x 49in!
Of course it could be adapted to any size & theme.
Now the only issue is that I want to keep it pristine, but our table is the only place it fits!
(am I being a bit precious?!) I give myself permission for that, for now at least, ha...

*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*

I have a couple of items that I am wishing to part with... if anyone wants to take them off my hands
please let me know. (A trade of a couple of fq's would suit me.)

Lynette Anderson Designs

Also, I played with some new EPP shapes a while back, but now I don't want what I made.
There is one fully stitched circle; the papers are removed & it measures 10in across.
The other 4 sections still have the papers in them. The colours in the pic are not quite true, but they are very close - the green is prettier, the red is not orange-y at all.
These I am willing to give away, either together or separately, to someone who will love them & use them.

Ok, time to go have some lunch... Happy Sunday Everyone.

Gorgeous table runner. I would be a bit precious about it too.

Your runner is lovely. I have the same problem....I really don't want the tomato sauce standing on my runner. Good idea to offload, I should have a look in my cupboards too.

Would love the All Birds Welcome pattern if it's still available, and you're willing to ship across the world! Let me know what you'd like in trade. The table runner is great - you can now make sewing machine covers! And did I see a blue backing???

Susan said...

Love your table runner - I have been very out of it with blogging - silly me - I would have gone with the Anni Downs book too - but so sorry to hear you have been so sick - how scary for you too, but slowly on the mend I hope. (Really it's no good being sick if you can't sew at the same time...)
