Frugality sometimes fails. And as a result, I'm offering these two holiday table runners as a giveaway. That is assuming anyone wants them. If you don't, I understand as I don't want them either.
A little back story. Two years ago, I wanted a holiday table runner for the top of my coffee table in our living room. I'd been on a serious kick of not buying any new fabric, but rather trying to use up what I had in my stash. My box of Christmas/holiday fabrics was not large, but I used what I had.
Did not like the results, but used the runner during that holiday season anyway.
And then last year, because I wanted to continue my stupidity, I used many of the same fabrics to make one more holiday runner to use in another area. Funny thing, I didn't like that one any better than the first.
A month or so ago, I saw some holiday-ish fabric advertised online on one of my favorite quilting sites . . . and bought it. The results were two table runners that I REALLY LIKE and know I'll use for years to come.
That brings us right back to this giveaway.
These two (smallish) runners seeking a new home are pieced and machine quilted, the backs of them are a simple muslin fabric so they're not reversible.
The smaller one measures 12" x 27" . . .
(The above three pictures all came out a smidge "darker" than the actual fabric. The neutral background pieces don't "stand out" quite as much as shown.)
. . . and the larger is 14-1/2" x 31-1/2". They both go together to one name drawn. If anyone wants to enter this giveaway. If not, they'll be donated to our local second-hand resale store.
Soooo, if you do want to be in the drawing for these, please say so in the comments section of this post.
I'll close down comments around 9 p.m. on this coming Tuesday night (November 21st) and draw a name Wednesday morning.
Yoo-hoo! Anyone out there interested? You could put one under the hamster cage and the other on a high shelf where no one will see it. Just kidding, they're not that bad, I know. They just didn't turn out to be what I was hoping for.
