This is probably the last of my holiday gift making for the year. (Though I do have one thing I can’t show you until it has been received — way too obvious who it is for!) It’s a table runner for my sister-in-law. This is one of those gifts where I had to bite the bullet and make a thing I have no interest in, using fabrics I have nearly no interest in. Because I think this is what she will like. I would never use a table runner. I have zero interest in table runners. And I have even less interest in most of these fabrics. The only one I like is the blue one with the little discs (from Jenean Morrison’s Moondance line). It came in a scrap pack I got from Purl Soho, I think. But it’s done, and I think my sister-in-law will like it, and that’s what counts!
And before I forget AGAIN, I wanted to say that Terri and I had a great swap. I showed you the awesome Toasty fingerless gloves that she made for me. I totally forgot to take a picture of the tote bag I made for her. It was the new free pattern from Denyse Schmidt using her Patchwork Promenade cheater fabric. Hop over to Terri’s blog to see Terri’s photos of it. Thanks again, Terri!
Coming up next, a super quickie Christmas card tutorial. Stay tuned!
