Design Wall Monday - May 23, 2011

Nothing to exciting on the design wall today. I was working yesterday on putting together tumbler runner #2. It is in rows, just not sewn together or trimmed up yet.

What I want to know is if you think the runner will look best like this one is going to be, just tumblers, or like the one below that I did on saturday with the white and the holly on each end. I have enough tumblers cut for at least two more runners (I do fall craft shows so make LOTS of runners) so would like opinions. They are getting a little boring to piece so think I will go on to another project I have cut out and come back to these in a few days.

The incision on my hand is healing nicely. A little achey today so I might have over did it slightly yesterday but definitely not doing anything I am not suppose to as I want it to heal as quickly as possible.

Honestly, I think both ideas are very nice. People with longer tables might like the one with the holly at the ends, I'm a big fan of your blog, read it every day. So happy to hear your hand is healing.

I love the effect of the holly on both ends.

The holly is beautiful. I can picture that hanging over the ends of my small sideboard, so pretty!. Love the tumblers.

I like it with the holly. It finishes it off nicely. Another suggestion to change it up; why not have the ends come to a point and attach a gingle bell, tassel, or holiday ornament. Sandi

I like the holly on the ends. I have also made tumbler runners where the row runs the short width and then has the angled edges - gives it a little extra umph but it's also "harder" to bind all the corners.
