Finally, a Finish

A couple of months ago I bought a charm pack of “Oasis” fabric and made  a table runner top the same day.  I cut the backing and binding and that is as far as I got.

Finally, last night I finished it off, just in time to join in OPAM.  I can’t have a month with nothing finished.

The colours are a lot “prettier” than I often use, but I think it goes well in our dining room.

It is rather a dull, wet morning here today, so not the best photo.  We are enjoying the rain as we so need it.

Well done. The word finished is good in this context isn't it?
Your collection of green glass is lovely too. ( I collect - or used to, dark blue glass. )

Hi, I just love your table runner, I think I need to make one for my kris kringle gift I have to get around to making. Do you have the name of the designer/pattern? Another question...my friend has lost her pattern for the 1980 woman's day crochet bedspread and she's a 1/3rd of the way through. I spotted it on your blog of Jan 09! Do you have the edition number so I can ring woman's day? By the way, love the camping but not so sure about the side car motorbike bit? Luv your blog, Helen

Hello! I just found your blog while looking for a tablerunner that I could make using charm packs. Could you tell me the name of the pattern?? Did you buy it or was it in a magazine?? My email is gmc.bernard@ gmail.com Thanks for your help.

I love this runner! Saw it on Pinterest today. Can you tell me what the pattern is? Thinking it might be one by Anka's Treasures but not sure.

Hi Janice: I discovered your blog through Pinterest on a page that included your gorgeous table runner. I'm adding myself to the list of people wondering about the pattern; I'd love to make this one. Love that dresser and your glass collection too. Cheers, Jan

I am making this runner with 3.5 inch squares of a variety of green, brown, and gold. Was able to figure it out from the pic. It's coming together beautifully. Thanks for the inspiration!
