wow, running with the stitch

It is WOW, what is off my worktable!


I used  the KISS approach and went for an envelope finish and straight line quilting.  Done.


And in use.  I'll be changing to my winter decor very soon but it made an appearance for the cozy coffee theme.  :^)

This is a close up of the runner which I did first and sparked the simpler approach.  I was off and stitching and congratulating myself on a fast finish when I stitched through my thumb.  Pure dumbness but further confirmed I am out of practice and need to keep things simple until I ramp up to full speed.  :(

The Needle and Thread Network are no doubt making lots of finishes also.

Ouch! I never have been able to figure out how to sew a finger. so I guess I am lucky in my ignorance! Love the crazy table topper! And a great use of the fancy stitches.

That sends chills down my spine! Sounds like an injury that should get you out of doing dishes for a week or so. Your table topper is fabulous!

Oh Dear Elle...your thumb is not for needling! May it heal quickly. Your WOW is completed and looks wonderful in place on the tables. Sometimes simple is best. Healing Hugs...

Ouch! Gotta practise your aim, elle! Be careful. The number of digits is finite.
