I have been playing with some of my FIL's machine embroidery. Made this table runner as a thank you for someone who is taking care of some personal things for us. I did not have any pattern, so I came up with this version om my own. It measures about 18x18. I had the binding cut before I really started playing. If I did it again I would use bias binding. Setting the corners took some time and then I realized that all I needed to do was use a little math sense. Not a perfect pattern, but it was fun to play for a little while.
After being away for 31 years, we are finally home again. We are South Dakotans through and through, so this is were we want to spend our "retirement" years. My husband and I are getting ready to open a custom woodworking business with me being the paper pusher and the woodworker's apprentice. Along with that I am going to continue quilting and also work as a substitute teacher. Life is good!
