A Gift from my Talented Sister
I received this beautiful tablerunner from my fabulous and talented (and too-far-away) sister, Aunt LoLo for Christmas. Isn't it great? She got busy this last Christmas season and churned out about 6 of these suckers for (uber lucky) gals in the family. I love the colors, and how soothing it looks with the pine table and chairs. (The platter was a birthday gift from my aunt- she's an interior decorator, and doesn't she have fabulous taste??) I love how these two gifts coordinate, and I can see them and think about families who love us.
I especially love the free-motion quilting. It's so LoLo- she could sew a straight line, but why would she want to do that?
I also love how hardworking this is- it's a durable and machine-washable table runner, that can easily stand in as a huge hot pad for a row of hot dishes at dinner time. Brilliant!
