OMG Finishes

My tablerunner is finished and am quite pleased with the result
I used turquoise thread to quilt straight lines.They are not that straight as I didn't mark the lines but used the eye that obviously doesn't see straight!! I like how the colour of the thread ties it together.
All the fabric is that which I dyed although the backing is just white fabric. Now if you think your eyes are playing tricks with you and you see the end fabrics look like they're tapered, don't panic. They are tapered!! Intentionally- no of course not. I decided they didn't look straight so thought I would sort it-didn't follow the rule measure twice, cut once, but I can live with it. good runner for the outdoor table during summer entertaining.
Now an apology to all my followers. When I  began blogging I was advised by one of my first followers that you should answer comments that were left so I started to do that but boy it took me so long and I often wondered how others answered me so quickly. I thought it was that I have a gmail address but that's not it, I was just a little bit slow!
I would make a list of all those who left comments,visit their blog profile, write down the email address and then send an email which as you can imagine took me forever. I should've asked a question earlier but thought surely I could work this out. Well on the weekend I finally figured it out-only took me a year!!
So to all of you who have left comments and not had a reply, I apologise but now I have no excuse. Thank you to all who have continued to visit.

Happy stitching.
