This is for Anita at My Country Cottage Garden. Every time I see her quilted & needlework creations, I think of this little table runner. So, I have taken it out to enjoy for the post holiday/pre-spring season. My Great-Grandmother H. gave it to me. It was either her Aunt or Great-Aunt that had made it a long time ago. I wonder if she made it during the winter when she couldn't garden and needed something colorful. The stitching makes me think of flowers & garden patterns.
It is made from silk, satin and velvet pieces. Scraps I'm sure, some from ties. Maybe coat and hat linings, dresses and who know what else. My G-Grandmother said the plain center was a place for the things usually found on a table. I wasn't willing to do that, so it is adding color in the living room instead.
I have another piece I'll share later in the week. The days past are also on my mind as I have some time to spend with DP's stories today.
