Table Runner Posted!

I finally finished my table runner for the EB swap! I was sure at times I wasn't actually suppose to get it finished as I had 101 problems towards the end, but I got it done and in the mail! Just hope my swapee likes it! No complete pictures until it gets to it's destination, but here it is folded and ready to go.

Sneak Peek

I managed to get a few hours on Sunday afternoon to work on my table runner for my EB swap. I actually planned to do this awhile ago, but when I looked through my stash, I couldn't find fabric that I thought would do what I wanted it to so I had to order some more. What a shame! I'm a bit worried about this being a swap item as I am trying several new things! Hope my swap buddy is understanding!
I had a few heart stopping moments, like when I was trying to put two pieces together and they would go! I read and re-read the instructions to make sure I had cut it properly (which I had) and couldn't work out why it wasn't working - until I turned one of the pieces 90 degrees! Suddenly everything feel into place and I stopped having visions of having to unpick everything and start again. In the end I was so happy with it and how quickly and easily it had actually come together, I rewarded myself with a champers and a quiet half hour on the deck with a book!
