Finishing the little table runner took a little longer than I thought yesterday.
Well, as far as picking out which one to do.
I just couldn't make up my mind as to which edging to put on it.
I don't think having so many choices lying around on the book shelves makes things the slightest bit easier.
But finally one spoke to me and it was adapted to fit on the little table pretty.

You can find the pattern in the Mar/Apr 2009 Crochet Today.
I only used rows 1-3 and really love how it turned out.
I might even have to make one for myself now.
I felt rather nice to break away from the usual shell, picot edging and go crazy with something else.
Breath of fresh air.
I'm going to have to look through all those other choices more often.

Back to cutting out the dress patterns today and clipping the fabric out.
Getting into some sewing today is really making me a bit giddy!


  1. Very, very pretty....and my favorite color red to boot. I do like this border and agree, it's nice to try something new from time to time.

    Have a sunshiny day....Erika
