The alternative!

I have been focused and have been working on my alternative for the Modern Christmas tablerunner.  I have sewn the trees together, put the borders on and even started quilting.


It now looks like this....







I have just machine stitched around the trees and inner border so far...still lots to do before I can relax and wait by my postbox....!








What arrived in my postbox today?  A package I was quite excited about!  But it was neither a Brit Quilt Pillow Fight Cushion nor a Tablerunner.  




I have been buying this magazine when I see it in the shops....






It is quite fun and I have quite enjoyed looking at it!  In this issue I noticed a subscription offer that tempted me just a bit more than usual and so I succumbed and became a subscriber and today I received this... 







Fabric from The Makery in Bath!  Quite an assortment of colour, pattern and weight.  Just the sort of temptation I couldn't resist!

  6. I love this table runner, too-- but what was wrong with your first one (did you decide you wanted to keep it? Maybe I missed a post?) I'm not familiar with that magazine (being American and all-- perhaps I can look it up online and check it out)-- but scrumptious fabrics you received!

  7. everybody is raving about that magazine but I've never seen it available here. I bet it would cost an arm and a leg for me to subscribe to!
    As a reader, would it be worth it for me?

  8. Table runner is coming up a treat. Has your partner indicated a preference? The fabric seems more than enough justification to sign up, and the mag as well is a bit like icing!!!!
