Felted Table Runner

Felted Table Runner

This gorgeous felted table runner was a gift from Aja. She makes the most lovely felted things, but I think this is my favorite. The little bits of white around the pink are silk, and the whole thing is tailored to match my living room. Isn’t she a gem?

We’re headed to Big White, BC, Canada this weekend for the annual family ski trip. I looked on a map last night and was shocked to see it’s a whopping seven-hour drive each way. Not sure how that will work out being so pregnant, but I’m trying to concentrate on how fun it will be once we finally get there. We’re staying in the coziest rental house near the mountain. I’m planning on reading a good book by the fire and working on the quilt, which I seem to be progressing slowly on. I’m doing an intricate weave design on the long strips of white, and then outlining each part of the bricklayer squares. I think I’m a quarter of the way done and there’s still half of winter left so I should be doing the binding this spring.

And since I’ve been on a link kick, I’ll leave you with Blanket magazine. Eye candy.

    The felt runner is gorgeous. I took a class this fall at Festive Fibers in NH. What a lot of fun and great for getting out you aggression in a nonviolent fashion.

    Have a super time on your winter wonderland holiday!
