Monday is “Roll the Dice” day and it landed on number 6, my Christmas Table Runner. The actual name is “Jingle Table Runner” and the pattern was a free download from Red Brolly. I first saw this lovely design when Maria from Life on the Block wrote about it on her blog a couple of years ago.
I completed the four stitcheries which go on the ends of the runner a couple of months ago, then put it away to add to my list and await the roll of the dice. In the pattern these blocks are done with applique, but I decided to change it to stitcheries.

Various strips of festive fabric have been cut and stitched
There’s more cutting and rearranging to do, so I’ll see how it all goes this week. I may or may not have the top all pieced together by the end of the week, with a couple of social outings things tend to get a bit busy. But every little bit helps, and this project will be moved along a stage further by the end of the week, regardless of how much I do. One thing I’ve decided though, I will not be making those “tongues” on the ends, just couldn’t live with them.
