Not happy .....

And in this instance I cannot blame "Jan" or anyone else only ME!!

Last night was Friday night sew-in and I had aimed to finish off a tablerunner that I have been working on using the "tube" method and all was going well until I got up to the binding - what no colour thread to match the binding - how could this be???
Off I went rustling through all my colour threads - every colour of the rainbow and grades of every shade but alas not the green I wanted. So for me Friday night sew-in turned into Saturday morning finish off after I called into the local sewing centre to get the thread which I might add took two of us to find just the right shade.

Anyway without any further ado here is my autumn tablerunner using the "tube" method which I enjoyed doing.



I can see more seasonal tablerunners - winter, spring and summer - being done using this method and a couple of cushion covers as well.

OH very nice runner. I really want to try this technuiche - need to stop talking about it and just DO IT.

I am so into making tablerunners at the moment - love to use them on all my tables including coffee tables and they make great gifts - in fact I am up to the binding on a 50th b'day pressie for tomorrow.

Hugs & Blessings

Beautiful runner.

the runner is beautiful. I am going to try the 'tube' method. The girls at quilt group tried it last week and we were all very impressed.

Lovely colours you chose! This method is highly addictive; have already made 1 table runner, a cushion, and a table centre, with more fabric just sitting waiting to be sewn ... gardening first though.
