WIP Wednesday


Wednesday already? Here is my WIP for this week, actually on the right day for once. This is a table runner I started after Christmas, and it will be a gift for one of my sister-in-laws. She is a techno-phobe and does not even read her email, much less my blog, so I am safe to post pictures here. I love her, but I wish she would join us in the twenty-first century.

I am still working out how to complete this. I thought about a circular vine, I want to leave room in the center for a vase or candle centerpiece. I even thought about including one in the gift, so if I bought it first I could design around it. As you can probably tell, this is machine applique.

On the "art" side, I have been sketching for my ladder series. The 12th will be here before you know it, and I hope I have something to show.

Beautiful table runner and I am not typically fond of table runners. Love the roses!

Oh, lovely, Jen. There is just something about red and green fabrics together, no matter the time of year =-) I notice you have one of those bobbin doughnuts...how do you like it, I got one for Xmas and haven't loaded it yet...

Yummy tablerunner! how about a really big red rose in the center with leaves all around - that could be a focal point for the candle...
