Country Fruit Table Runner

Saturday, June 20, 2009
The latest issue of Country Threads magazine is out and my Country Fruit Table Runner is in there! I really enjoyed designing this project. It has plenty of my favourite fusible web applique embellished with stitchery details. The end panels in burgundy and green with hens on them were the inspiration for the runner. It was one of those projects that came together exactly as I had planned the first time (doesn't always happen!) and I was really pleased with the end result.
I haven't had much time for stitching this week with plenty of planning and packing for our trip to Lake Eyre being at the top of the priority list. Top of my thinking has been what I can take to stitch while we're on holidays. No, the sewing machine isn't going with me in our little campervan, so I've decided to work on someone else's design for a change. More about that next blog.
Happy stitching.
