Several Small Finishes!

I've been continuing to work on binding pieces that have come off of my long arm.  First I finished the set of potholders from my last post and put them right into use!

Next up was putting the finishing touches on a Christmas table runner.  It's done a bit early for the holidays, but that's certainly fine by me! I'm just really excited to have decorations to use in our new home!

I really love the colors on this piece.  The grey and the red seem a little more wintery than holiday specific to me, and I am looking forward to getting all the use out of this that I can!

The back is a little busy but I wanted it to be darker than the front.  The idea is that it will be more forgiving during use than the light colors of the top... as long as I remember to turn it over!  It was inspired by the center present in Lorna's Boxes-n-Bows table runner.

  1. I just love red and grey for the holidays. I am a big fan of teal and grey as well. I actually think I have some of that very fabric laying around waiting to be turned into something. :) Beautiful job on the table runner!

  2. I never actually get holiday sewing done in time, so I think this is a fine idea. But I admit I have a difficult time actually making myself work on it when it's hot outside....
