While watching the New England Patriots this afternoon, I finished the binding on this winter table runner. The pattern shows using a crocheted doily for the bottom of the snow lady. (The pattern indicates that you could choose to use fabric, but I loved using a doily.)
The pattern, "Hannah Rose," is by Rustic Country Handcrafts. I decided to make it using some recently purchased beautiful, deep blue batik yardage along with some other blue fabrics in my stash, and I had just the perfect heart shaped black buttons for the coat.
I added the white tree candle and two reindeer which I had received for Christmas to complete the scene. In fact, receiving these gifts actually prompted me to work on this piece.
I made the squares slightly smaller than the pattern indicated and added a border. Because I had altered the pattern, there were enough squares left over to create another smaller runner for the top of my quilt rack.
Have a creative, fun week!!!
