Me? I'm a deadline kind of girl and managed to finish my present right. on. the. due. date. phew!
This project kind of evolved. I've really enjoyed my brief foray into patchwork in the last couple of weeks so I decided to make a spotty, scrappy table runner.
I machine appliquéd lots of hand cut red circle scraps on to white to make the front of the runner and while I planned a plain red backing, I found that I didn't have enough fabric so I stripped (is that even a verb? ... in the sewing sense I mean!)up a panel for the middle. Luckily, a gross miscalculation (maths was never my thing) when I was making advent bunting meant that I had plenty of red and white checked binding to finish the project off.
The hardest thing about this project was taking a reasonable picture of it ... hence the collage. Like Lizzy's cushions it's a little bit wonky but made with lots of Christmas spirit and the very best of intentions!
Thank you so much Jodi for organising this - I have really enjoyed it and you have inspired me to make my whole Christmas a red and white one this year!
