I don't know how I missed these but they are all so pretty. I love this runner design and see it in her newsletter sometimes.
Thanks Toogie, they are so easy to do. You could do them in your spare time he he he!!!!!!!!!!!! Love Chris
Beautiful! I don't buy very many designs anymore--I am a troll seeing what is free--someone wrote about trolls--I am more the collector these days and don't get a whole lot accomplished. Of course there are a bit of troll in all of us, otherwise none of us would go after the freebies. Sweetpea has gorgeous projects and designs. I drool when I look at them, just as I am doing over these. I am all electric here in the states where I live and icy outside. My first floor heater went out and I think we are holding at 59 degrees here in the house--I am dressed with thick layers of everything and don't feel like moving. Hopefully the part under the house unit is what my husband thinks it is and has ordered and will be here by Friday. Love your projects.
Thankyou so much for commenting Patty, and I hope you get your heating fixed. Love Chris
Hi Chris, very nice! I also have this pattern, and was going to make for Christmas gifts, but I ran out of time because we were away for a month, and didn't get back home till Christmas week, so before we left home, I made 5 twisted pole runners. I hope to post the photos soon, not feeling 100% today.
Sorry to hear you are not feeling well Mary and I hope you can post your twisted pole runners, when you are feeling better - they sound interesting. Love Chris
They are gorgeous!
Thanks once again Deb! he he he! You actually commented on them back in July last year when I made them. Love Chris
terrific job, love the designs, they will be greatly appreciated I am sure,
They have already been very much appreciated...these are the table runners that Chris made for her luncheon last year!
Hi Michelle, you must have missed these last year. I rang all the ladies and asked what colours they would like and so each one is different. You can make them as long as you like really. Love Chris
I have to add here that the photographs do not do these justice, they were all stunning!!!
You're too kind! Love Chris
They are outstanding Chris, every single one.
It is cold in Melbourne too, but we use a wood burning stove to keep us warm day and night! - Hugs
Thanks Roberta, I wish we had our old combustion heater we used to have in Valentine. Our home is totally electric now and I'm not looking forward to our next electricity bill!!! ❤️ Chris
These are all gorgeous!
Thanks so much for commenting ❤️ Chris
These look great. If anyone in the group has a party or wedding, you could call them all back to decorate the tables! We all want to move to Australia and join your Christmas friends group!
Thanks Betsey, you are most welcome to come! I always tell my friends about all you Cuties. Love Chris
Very nice job on the table runners. Happy Stitching :~)
Thanks so much, I have a few more things to do. Love Chris
Very well done, they look fabulous.
Thanks, I thought so too! Love Chris
Wow, this is a beautiful work, all are lovely.
Thank you so much for commenting, love Chris
They are very nice.....everyone is going to love them!!
Thanks so much, I certainly hope so. Love Chris
Your are a good friend and a wonderfully creative gal! I enjoy seeing your all your runners and look forward to seeing what else you do.
Thanks so much, I've got a couple of ideas floating around! Love Chris
Oh, Chris, these are all lovely........Meg has to show us hers when she gets hers........you do such beautiful work!!
Thanks Vicki, high praise from you. I love your digitising, but am happy to leave it to you guys. Love Chris
These make a nice French Braid the way you have displayed them., good instructions,etc?Every one is just prettier than the next!!I have looked and looked at this runner on Sweet Pea but thought it might be way too complicated. was is fairly straightforward
Thanks, it is very clever. Just lay down your wadding, then placement stitch sews and then you put down fabric and do the stitches. They are all very easy, love Chris
Thanks, I guess I will give them a try.
Beautiful!!!!Lucky Ladies???Job well done!!Gorgeous
Thanks so much Sonja, love Chris
Spoil sport! ROFLMBO!!! :-)
They look fabulous Chris, the girls will love them, but they all love everything you make for them. xxxxxx
PS, it's nearly finished, I'm so excited.
He he he! Thanks so much, and I'm excited for you too. Can't wait to see it all done. I'll come down for the official opening of your new sewing room. Love Chris
Very pretty. I love the little extras you dropped in with your thread color choices.
Thanks Jerrilyn, yes, I put silver in Chris's and gold in a couple of others. Love Chris
These are all wonderful Chris, your table will be stunning as usual again this year I am sure. The ladies gifts will be very much appreciated with all the work that you put in each year, they shall treasure your fantastic gifts and efforts . Well done. Sandra.
Thanks so much Sandra, they all look forward each year to see what I'll come up with. Still got 2 gifts times 8 to make yet. I want an FSL article for their Christmas tree and I always make a tea towel with a design that matches my theme. ❤️ Chris
How about I give you my crocheted snowflake pattern?
Thanks Meg, but I have something else in mind. ❤️ Chris
Wow, you have done a great job, Chris!
Thanks Lidia - each one takes about 6 hours to complete. Them the backing had to be put on! ❤️ Chris
They look lovely - the navy one really shows the design beautifully.
Thanks Sue, yes, I love navy and white together. Love Chris
Very nice Chris!! You are very organised, I haven't started mine yet!! Weather is warm up here in the tropics, we are in shorts and t-shirts. Mary
Thanks so much and lucky you, it's now 5.30pm Sunday afternoon and it's now 18C (64F) - almost a heat wave he he he! Hope you are keeping well up in Queensland. Love Chris
Love them Chris hugs
Thanks Carolyn, me too. Love Chris
Beautiful work. Amazing how colors change the entire vibe of each runner. The ladies should be pleased. DebB
Thanks so much Deb, I hope so too. Love Chris
Very nice table runners, the ladies will be delighted with them. My BIL is recuperating in Newcastle after a triple by-pass heart operation. He is staying with his son. He was enjoying the warmer weather to what we have been and still having down here in Tassie. He will think he is back home. Hugs
Hi Shirley, sorry to read your brother has been in hospital, but if he is in the John hunter hospital, it's the best outside of Sydney. I hope he is doing o.k. now.
You are right though about the weather being nearly as cold as Hobart, we certainly haven't been this cold in a very long time. Thank you for commenting. Love Chris
He 9 (Hubby's brother) had his operation in the Royal Melbourne Private Hospital. He lives over here in Launceston but his son lives in Newcastle. Sorry to hear you are having some cold weather also. Hugs
Great job on all of these, Chris...been hot here...100 degrees Fahrenheit as I write...
Thanks Kim, wow, that's what it used to get to in Adelaide during the summer when I was a wee lass. I don't mind hot, but when it's humid that's it for me, I'm outa there! He he he, love Chris
Very nice amazing how the same thing can look so different just by changing the colours used.
We are even cold here in Brisbane the last few days. Not as bad as out West though but enough to make you put on a track suit. Last weekend I was in shorts and T shirt.
Thanks Barbara, yes, I agree. I was so pleased when I saw each one finished and how different they all looked to the previous one.
Can't believe you were in shorts and a T shirt in the middle of winter, that's amazing. Love Chris
These are nice Chris. It's been cold here in Warren as well, -3 or more the last week (in the mornings )
Thanks Irene, I can't believe how cold it's been. Love Chris
