Back to the design wall

It’s very exciting having a design wall. I’m busy making a second version of a table runner I designed back in the summer. As I was working away at it on Saturday evening I kept having to move the completed centre panel off the cutting mat, then out of the way of the table top ironing board and then off my seat on the ‘thinking sofa’. Finally it dawned on me that behind the sofa is the newly hung design wall… I’ll get there one day… And so the panel found it’s handy resting place! It was fun adding the other panels around it as they were completed – now I’m feeling very professional 🙂

The original table runner was designed and put together back in July/August. I couldn’t bring myself to share it at the time as *GASP* it is a Christmas project!

I will be teaching it as a class at Purple Stitches over the next couple of Saturdays. Hence the push to make a second top in a different colour way. This is also serving as a means of reminding myself how it all goes together whilst writing up some class notes.

It’s a beautiful sunny day here in the south of the UK. Hope the sun is shining where you are and your projects are keeping you happy.
