Several of you emailed and asked for photos of the table runner in action, so here's one:
In retrospect, I wish it was longer, but oh well, c'est la vie! LOL I can always make another! I had measured from my other favorite one, and thought I had allowed enough for shrinkage, but life is a series of learning processes and then...................!
