Spotfiring!

I have so many projects on the go at the moment, some for later in the year, some for commitments and some for my friends wedding which is in a few weeks!!.......it just doesnt feel like Im accomplishing anything. I needed a quick project and as the tablerunner on our coffee table was looking a little worse for wear.....perfect, it was time for a new one!
No time to design something new, so I adapted one of my own patterns Daisy Walk. I made it a little bigger and added the triangular ends. Im happy with the end result.
The warm country colours work well in our home and as Id originally designed this pattern in soft lemons and apricots, it was great to see how it worked with stronger colours.

Ive had these Madiera fabrics for ages, some of them had been cut up and stored in a box for a project I knew Id never finish so it was good to get them out and use and enjoy them. It may only be a small finish but its helped regain my focus and get back to all these other projects! Hmmmm but which one????

Wohoo - you used some of those cut up Madeira fabrics! It looks fabulous - great way of adapting your Daisy Walk runner! A very different look from the original lemon and peach, but still very much the same. And I can see this fitting perfectly in your living room ;o)

I've just recently learned the value of tackling a small, finish-able, project among all my bigger ones - I need that sense of accomplishment every once in a while or I start to despair at my slow pace. Lovely table runner!
