Working on Some Christmas Gifts!

DJ and I decided to makeeach of her two grandmothers a Christmassy tablerunner
with fabric I already have here at home. Since we are doing that I decided we should make a few extras because I always find them homes. I had leftover Merry and Bright and 12 Days of Christmas so that is what we got going on. DJ did the cutting (what wasn't already a charm) and I got to sewing. Listened to Lady Gaga and tried to bear the heat. Sal the AC guy is going to come tomorrow. Can't wait! Here is the first top sans a border.

And here is a stack of strips all ready to be turned into a few more tablerunners. We did these ones with a half charm square on each side so I won't have to add another border. So far nine strips made.

And I only added one little bow tie with the scissor fabric (bottom right) which is fabric leftover from the quilt I made my Grandma Nan which eventually covered her casket and now my cousin Lindy has! I love all the memories in these bow ties!

Cute tablerunners. I like the idea of adding a half square on the ends. It will save you a step. I will have to try that!
