Christmas Table Runner

There’s a concept in ‘proper’ blogging called batching.

The idea is to sit at your desk once a week or so and write a week’s worth of posts, so you have a few up your sleeve.

I have tried in a quilty way to do the same thing.  It’s much more time effective for me to take a lot of my photos on the same day – when it’s a nice sunny day, when I have time up my sleeve.  Then I put them all on here, and save draft after draft of quilt blog posts for a rainy day.

Consequently I have many drafts in my folders that I’m trying to clear out.  You think I would post more often with all the extra blog posts I have up my sleeve.

Here is a really pretty Christmas table runner that I made back in 2010 (obviously from the date on the stitchery).  The pattern was from a Country Threads magazine, back when I was buying craft magazines.






When I actually sit and stitch, I”m always happy with the quality I should do.  My eyesight is not so good at the moment but I’m yet to organise glasses, and so I haven’t stitched for ages.  Perhaps it’s time to get back into it.

Hope you’ve had a quilty day!



  1. I just love your table runner. So cute!

  2. What a pretty way to use some hand-stitched patches. Lovely!
