|Great colors and embroidery on linen!|
But this one, this one was just right.
I justified my interest in this runner...

I do not have a plan for the ribbon just yet...but I will think of one. I create as I go.
Surprise....Off goes my long basket of pumpkins...and in comes my tureen! (More about this tureen later.)
|This tureen is from the Thistlewood Farm Collection at the Painted Fox.|

|For our house in the woods, this table runner is just perfect!|
Do you ever fall for impulse shopping? ha. I call it the "hunting and gathering" that we do for our
