Thirties Blend Dresden Plate Table Runner

Hello lovely readers.  Some show and tell for you today.  I’m still plodding through photographing all my projects, flimsies or not.

I received a pack of these ‘thirties’ prints from somewhere and whilst I love them, they don’t really look thirties to me.  I’d say forties or even fifties.  They don’t go with the (rather large) stash of what I would call ‘proper’ thirties prints.  So I found a dresden plate tutorial somewhere and promptly discovered I only had enough fabric to make a table runner, and that’s what I did.

It’s a gloriously sunny day here – the blossoms are all out, you can hear the bees buzzing and the birds chirping, it’s just lovely.  The whole family has been sick with something awful the past two weeks and being the mother, I’ve been busy keeping them tucked into bed with food and drink.  This was a particularly nasty virus thing that’s been going around our schools and my family managed to catch it all at once.  So far so good for me, but I’m crossing everything that can be crossed that it’ll just fly right past me.

I hope you’ve had a lovely few weeks, I’ll be back another day with some more show and tell.
