My daughter in law asked me to make some runners for her daughter Teal's bedroom. The colours of her room are burgundy (sort of) and olive green (sort of).....these are the fabrics I came up with from my stash.
My trusty machine......a Babylock.
I found some green among my stash so we are all set. I have already completed and sent two runners. She gave me specific lengths to go by and so it was easy to adjust the pattern to work with that.
Now to sew. A very simple pattern. You join your colours around a central panel. Adding as many sections as you wish to make the length you want. You then sew together face to face with the backing fabric. Cut and turn.
The colours in person are pretty much the same as the room, I could not get a good light to take the photograph.
Well that's that. I can mail those and make a start on the next project. I want to make a cushion for Teals bed out of the left over fabrics. Then I want to start on some cushions for the porch and deck. Not sure of what fabric yet.
If anyone is interested in the pattern and measurements let me know and I will add that to this post. It is easy, the trick is getting the points right.
This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.
