It's time to make a table runner for Thanksgiving. I'm using the top section from my Harvest of Hope pattern. Between raking and stacking wood, this is the progress I made yesterday using these gorgeous fall colors.
This should be just the right size for my table. But, you know, the first person who spills turkey gravy on it will be shot at sunrise! Unless of course it's one of the grand kids:)
The first time I made this top section, all of the leaves surrounding the little birds were gold.
I took a picture of the maple tree out front and decided to make the leaves all different colors this time around.
This tree has a split personality. Half of it wants to remain green and the other half wants to change.
We've been busy as the squirrels getting ready for winter. There's so much to do now that can't be done in the rain or snow. You can hear the hum of the chain saws in the air, the national anthem of the mountains. I'd rather be able to listen to the birds, but that's not happening this week.
I'm teaching Harvest of Hope at In Between Stitches beginning Sunday. If you are interested in taking this class, one Sunday afternoon a month for the next three months, I have a couple of openings.
Have a great day and wonderful weekend everyone. I'm off to begin mine by selecting fabric to make some plaid leaves!
