Greetings from Down Under...

Greetings from south-east Australia...where tonight it is cold and wet, very cold and wet...

I've been meaning to post this for a couple of weeks but you know how it is...best intentions and all that...anyhow...this is a table runner which I started back at the beginning of February and finally finished at the beginning of July...



My own design using a traditional block - Eight Hands Around - it is destined as a present for my SIL.

Enjoying seeing everyone's projects.

Happy Stitching...

Hi, Jindi!!
I LOVE♥ your table runner, the design, the colors - just everything! What a wonderful gift. Your SIL is very blessed to have you in the family :)
Cold does sound good to me right now, too - lol!!! We are back in the high 90's F. and because we've been soaked with rain for weeks, the humidity is really nasty :(.
Keep warm with your quilting projects♥
Hugz,

Oh, this is beautiful. I love the colors...very nice! I'm clueless when it comes to stitching and quilting, but I sure love to look at all you talented ladies work - it's very inspiring :-)

Happy weekend to you all!

I really love how you quilted this. The semi-circles on the end create more interest. Nice!

Wonderful table runner! The quilting looks great. I think the curves on the ends would give me a hard time.
