Table runners

I've found a few pieces of organza fabric between my mother-in-law's belongings when she died in 2007 and decided to use them to make runners.  Although not the easiest of fabrics to work with, the first two turned out rather beautiful. 

The yellow one was put to use in my room.  Designs used was the Frangipani set of Artistic designs.

The four corners.
The basket design used in between.


and the centre design.

 

I put the bronze one in my bathroom.  It is a perfect match to the new colour scheme - see this post.  Designs used from A stitch a half.

 
 
 
With the maid on holiday, I'm spending the majority of my time cleaning, washing and cooking and  less time doing any needlework.  I however managed to do quite a lot thus far.  Just hope I keep it up once I start work again.  Must make it a New Year's resolution.
