Runner

I've never been much for running. As a matter of fact I hate running. I don't even like jogging. I do like table runners though. I've been wanting to make one for a while and have one started. I've been working on this one for a couple weeks now. I could have finished it by now but I'm trying to work on it when I'm at my best. Being stressed or tired is not a good time for me to do things that I need to cut carefully and take my time with.
I started with another piece that was embroidered on my machine and then added fabric strips to make it the size I wanted

All I have left to do is sew on those two side strips and then add a backing. If I were to do this over again I would have made two more embroidered blocks. Maybe another project for another time.

  4. I can do the treadmill, but I'm not a runner either. I'm more the yoga type.

    Have a fabulous day. My best to Duke. ♥♥♥
