Christmas Table Runner

It's been very windy and rainy all day here and we are in for more of the same tomorrow. It makes for long dark gloomy days and not great for taking pictures either, the colours are much better in person. A finished table runner in Christmas fabrics, the little touch of black really makes it and I can use this up until New Years.

The gold is not as mustard looking as the photo shows. I don't feel very productive this week, I've had 2 migraines and that really takes me down for a whole day. I haven't had migraines for at least a year, I hope this isn't the start of more to come over the winter. Next on my quilting list is to finish a stitchery from Crabapple Hill.

Have a great week everyone.

This is a busy time of year, so getting one project done is plenty. I do like the black in the runner. And the gold adds to it also.

Love the table runner. I'm sorry about your migraines. I didn't realize you suffered from them. At my age I don't get them anymore thank goodness.

I guess this weather is getting everyone down. I'm feeling so depressed and listless.. in addition to those darn panic attacks.
