MY Tablerunner....

I recently took part in a Tablerunner Swap hosted by Maree.....

Mine arrived this morning from Carol in New South Wales ......


Even though I was so excited to see what was inside I have to say I did find it hard to tear into this beautifully wrapped prettiness... 

Such a pretty table runner... it is perfect for the coffee table ... there is piecing in these lovely earthy colours, and very sweet stitcheries in the middles ... and finished off with lovely hand quilting and matching binding....


Not only did Carol send me a tablerunner but a couple of matching coasters..... one for Hubz and one for me....

.... and some sweet treats too...


... just beautiful... thanks Carol 

I thought I would update you on my Wisteria..... it's looking beautiful....

this time of year I refer to my place as "Wisteria Lane" ......


Today I went to Quilt Group and Lyn brought in her Jelly Roll (race) quilt....  I love how she has sliced it up and resewn it.... (she's quite the arty type!!)

you perhaps can't see it clearly but the top and bottom borders are done in a matching chenille which gave a lovely bit of weight and texture to the quilt.... 


I have been doing some sewing... Sharon is collecting Polaroid Pictures for a sick little chappie.... I am sending these ones off with some Ausi animals on them ....


and I have been doing a bit of quilting lately

.... some in dark thread....


... and some in light thread .....


.... do you like my breathe easy gardening gloves... they work wonderfully!..... best grip ever

Righto, Gotto Go... Chai Latte and chocolate to enjoy .....

Love the colors in your new runner, and the little hint of stitchery. I hope your Wisteria Lane is calmer than the "other" one! Great little Polaroid blocks.

Susan said...

A gorgeous table runner, Love the wisteria too. Quilting with dark thread show s how confident you are with your quilting now - well done!

Jan said...

What a lovely table runner - great colours and the quilting enhances it beautifully. And your wisteria is gorgeous. Isn't it a great time of year in the garden.

Jennifer said...

Interesting runner, the quilting really adds texture and dimension! Your wisteria is very pretty, is it pink or mauve? It's a bit hard to tell in the sunlight.

Chrissie said...

Love the colours in the table runner, nice matching set. Your wisteria looks beautiful, lovely way to start your spring.

Hello Fiona,

Now which housewife are you? Love that Wisteria. I think that wrapping paper is just so pretty just like your new table runner. Lucky you.
Great little blocks for the sick one.
Happy quilting/gardening.

Bev.

Lovely tablerunner and packaged so pretty, I would have found it hard to tear into as well, lol! What a nice gift. And coasters, too! Love your Wisteria Lane, although I hated the show, lol...enjoy your quilting, Fiona, the gloves are a great idea!

What a lovely table runner, so simple, but effective.

Thanks a lovely runner with gorgeous hand stitching.
Love the idea of the jelly roll quilt being slashed changed. Looks great, too.

Sheila said...

Lovely table runner Fiona and some goodies to enjoy. Wisteria lane is a lovely name for such a pretty place ;-) the jelly roll quilt is interesting all cut up and sewn back together , very modern ! Hugs Sheila

Anthea said...

The runner is just gorgeous Fiona, lucky you, a lot of love has gone into that, plus the little extras too... enjoy!
Your quilting gloves are a great idea, and probably much cheaper option than the ones specifically for quilting x

Melody said...

so much beautiful sewing. I love the animal fabrics in the little blocks you are sending to Sharon for Blake.

Susie said...

Beautiful table runner. Love those little blocks for Blake too. Great quilting. Must try it again.
