Thanks Veronika for the little Santa gift. I sewed it out yesterday and washed the towel and have just given it an iron.


He's very cute and I was wondering - could he be made into a 5x7 design - pretty please? Love Chris

Well done. He looks great. I usually do my designs lower down on the Towel. What is your reasoning for having it up higher? Is it because you can just use the towel part by itself and not touch the design?
No being nasty just thinking it is a good idea and wondering why I haven't thought about it before.
That's what I like about here is you learn tricks every day.

Hi Barb, I always put the design 2 inches up higher than the section which has that little pattern in it. It hangs nicely on my towel rails that way too! I don't like having that ridge part in the hoop! Love Chris

That is a wonderful Santa! And, I agree that your table runner is magnificent! Everything you do is so precisely done...which is something I'm still working on! Good work!

Love how it turned out! I have been planning on putting that on a towel for a friend but haven't gotten to it yet, so is nice to see how it turns out. Thank you for sharing.

Gosh Chris your runner is to die for!-lol
I don't blame you for asking about Santa getting bigger, but he is so cute any size. You have done an excellent job with him.

Thanks Toogie, he was fun to watch sewing out, but the colour changes were fiddly! Love Chris

I think the runner is a Sweet Pea design but Chris will let you know otherwise...lol

dixie by dixie 03 Dec 2018

Thanks

Hi Dixie, yes, the table runner is from Sweet Pea which I made in 2016. Someone on Sweetpea asked if anyone had made it in the 4 inch hoop so I went on there and said I'd done one. I've actually never posted my goodies that I've made from SP before on their page, I usually post them on here. Love Chris

Thanks for that Chris I really love it but think I have got time to do before Christmas this year but maybe next year Val

Well done, Chris, but 19 color changes! I would not mind it in a 5x7 hoop.

Thanks so much Antje, yes, it was a lot of colour changes, that's why I asked for it to be made into a 5x7! Love Chris
