    When I saw the post the first time, I knew it would be a good technique for my recent fabric purchase, however . . .

    The 15 Minute Table Runner turned into 6 hours . . . :roll:

    Well, I figured it would take me longer than 15 minutes, letís just double it and say 30 minutes . . . times 2 because Iím making 2 of them. However, there were a few steps left out of the directions:

    1. Clean of the ironing board (involving shredding of paperwork, etc.);
    2. Iron fabric (thankfully, it had already been pre-washed);
    3. Experiment with decorative top stitch;
    4. Change needle after breaking one by trying to do a decorative top stitch with the wrong foot;
    5. Frog top stitching and change thread again (including winding more bobbin thread);
    6. Trip to JoAnns for more thread after the top stitching thread ran out . . .

    There may be more steps, since Iím not through yet. I decided to take a lunch break before getting dressed for my trip to JoAnns.

    that is so funny, and reminds me of the time my mom came over to learn how to make 20-minute pillow cases...took about 3 hours for her to get one done...it was a fun day :)

    Oh, you are my kind of friend. I would have to include
    "find a coupon" for Joann's onto the list.
