    Default Two Runners in One

    My initial thoughts were to make the Christmas table runner and just back it with some Thanksgiving fabric. When the backing time came, I didn't have enough fabric, but still wanted to use the Thanksgiving material. So without thinking it through, I decided to try a different pattern for the other side. Then slowly I realized that making a pointed end runner was going to be a bit of a challenge for the other "Thanksgiving" side, that ended squarely. I was really pleased to be able to figure out how to make it happen. Whew!

    Really lovely work! I particularly love the fact that it will serve two holiday purposes. Thank you for sharing.

    Two 'fers are the best. Twice the pretty for 1/2 the storage space!

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.
