Sunday was certainly sewing day here today. After Robin cooked Sunday breakfast of bacon and scrambled eggs, I did a few chores and got on with the job of finishing up my Christmas table runner top. Santa had to gather up his reindeer while they were enjoying munching on the grass.
The reins have now been stitched on the reindeer so Santa could control them while he goes on his merry way on Christmas Eve.
Here are the stitcheries added to the centre section, enjoying the winter sunshine out on the patio table. My runner turned out a little bigger that the pattern, as I already had some wider strips of Christmas fabric cut, and didn’t want to trim them down . It all worked out OK in the end.
So that’s the top completed, I’ve made a pieced backing, using up some more festive fabric, and prepared the binding. All I have to do now is sort through my crate filled to the brim with wadding pieces,and hopefully find something the right size. Then I can pin the layers all together ready to quilt.
