The runner with the darker Give Thanks words measures 16 1/2" by 23 1/4".
And the back looks like this.
You don't see the clam shell quilting on the front very well.
The runner with the yellow Give Thanks measures 15 1/2" by 22 1/2".
And it's back looks like this.
My friend Carol was the embroiderist (that may not be a word but I just invented it), I attached the borders and did the hand quilting. I also sewed the single fold bindings.
The embroidery is from the Give Thanks Table Runner designed by Meg Hawkey for Crabapple Hill Studio.
I'll let Carol choose which runner she wants to gift to her friend, either one is fine with me. Now I have an autumn table runner and it's still summer! Two more small projects finished!
I've stumbled across another hand embroidery sew along over on Days Filled With Joy. I don't know when it started or ends but the patterns are free for now. You're all adults, you can do the checking to see what's it about.
Next Sunday I'll show you the next small project I'm working with. This one will keep me busy for the rest of the summer.
I took more pictures of flowers from the beds. Next winter I'll come back to these posts and look at the flowers, so colorful!
The lilies I had shown you earlier have finished blooming. Now the asiatic lilies have started. I have 3 separate plants. They look similar but they're all different.
The day lilies are also blooming, I have several different colors.
Those were all single blossoms, here is a double bloom.
The tall phlox are starting to bloom now. I did thin out some of these but they need more work. The yellow day lilies got in the picture too.
The black eyed Susans are full of blooms along with the purple cone flowers.
I know it's hot and humid but summer is still my favorite season of the year.
