How about “Running for Color,” a Christensen Creations table runner? SEW simple, this is a great project for a beginner or for an expert who wants to use up scraps, and it’s on sale for just $1.50 through March 15. If you love color, this is one for you, but you don’t have to love jewel tones like this–when you CLICK ON THE WEBSITE, you’ll see it imagined in spring, fall, blue (batiks would be lovely) and even black/white for the stark modernist. What a great gift idea, especially as it comes in FOUR different lengths and can be simply backed if you don’t want to quilt it.
OK, NOT nagging, but seriously, it’s time to start working on Christmas projects (or Mother’s Day or birthday), and this one you can really personalize to fit the specific decor. It sews up so easily but packs a punch of color.
Speaking of gray days, I have to share my photo. It includes the Wetumpka Presbyterian church that we lost in the recent tornado. It’s called “Crossing for Hope in a New World” and was published in a Best of Photography Annual 2009–such a shame to lose a historic building and what an ironic name. (© 2009 by Libby J.
