Hearts and Flowers Table Runner



I made this table runner for my mom-in-law’s birthday. Unfortunately, I underestimated the amount of time and work required to make it and started working on it only about a month prior to her special day. What is more, she lives in Norway, and it takes at least a week for a package to travel from America to Europe. So the present was late, but you know how the saying goes: “Better late…”



The pattern (in a symbol chart format only) was from a UK website Coats Crafts. Click here to see the pattern.



The colors in the original pattern were pink, brown, red, and beige. But I substituted brown and red with lilac and white to create a spring palette. 



And here is a picture that my mother-in-law sent me. I think the runner looks lovely on her dining table.

  4. Красивые цветочки, листочки....и если ввязать сеточку мужду ними, то получиться красивая салфетка в стиле Ирландского вязания.

    1. О, это очень хорошая идея. Я как-то даже не подумала об этом. Ирландское кружево мне очень нравится, но сама не пробовала делать.
