Modern Christmas Tablerunner Swap

Some of you will know that I participated in the Modern Christmas Tablerunner Swap this year, though I was not the mama. Life told me that I had too much on right now to take on that duty as well. But it would  have been wrong to have not taken part.

It has been a small group but excellent fun. And I have received my tablerunner wall hanging. I stated a preference for a wall hanging as I only have one table and I already received my most excellent Christmas runner from Sarah last year.

Today my swap parcel arrived from my secret partner. Diane made for me, and she can be found here. She is not only fab at swaps (we have been in a few together), a talented quilter, but also ever so good at the small details. Take a look at this brilliant wall hanging she made me and you will see for yourself.


So a huge thank you to Diane. So lovely to get a swap item from someone you see in the swaps regularly and you know is so good. I love the way the log cabins in the quilt make a red star. It is all in the details here. The more you look at it the more you see.

Meanwhile I am recovering from the weekend. Katy has just left for the long drive back to Glasgow. We may have squeezed in a trip to the Bramble Patch this morning. I might have bought a little bit. Really, just a little bit. I'll try and remember to show you tomorrow.
