Christmas Table Runner #2 and #3 finished....

I have finished two of the table runners for the girls teachers Christmas pressies. The end of the term is sneeking up on us!

I think this one is my favourite so far. This is the back. The binding was picked out by Ads and Emma on a recent Adelaide shopping spree!

And another from the same Twiddletails pattern.

And the back again. I used a Micheal Miller daisy vine print that I have had for years and wondered if I would ever use it! I now have half a meter left! Actually these runners have been great for stash busting, haven't brought any new fabrics to make them.

And this is where I am up to on runner #4. Sewing down the binding. My arm has been aching as it did here. I am recognizing that this happens when I have done too much. Too much mouse clicking, to much hand sewing, too much bauble writing. I am about to give up the least important thing, the bauble writing! Yahh!

You should give them after you have recieved the girls report cards. they might decide to keep them back another year.
