I love Christmas. As the years go on though, I'm finding that I want to transition from traditional Christmas decor to things that are simply festive and bright.
I made this table runner from my shot cotton scraps. It's nice and skinny compared to a traditional-sized runner, measuring about 9" x 30". I prefer the smaller size because it doesn't crowd the placemats when the table is set. It gives a nice shot of color to our dark dining room table-- plus, it can stay out long after we put away the tree! Craft longevity is a good thing.
