    and time is the only cure! LOL But really, last week was my birthday, so I decided to make me a couple of table runner to keep and use for the holidays. The first one I completed in a day; but the second one took a couple of days and a trip to JoAnne's! They are both from quilting magazines. Thanks for looking!

    I knew you'd ask!! Both the runners are from Quilter's World. The Nutcracker one is from the Dec 2009 issue and the Poinsettia table runner is from the Dec 2007 issue.

    I probably got the nutcracker fabric at either Joanne's in Vancouver WA or Fabric Depot in Portland Oregon...but it was many years ago. I know I bought 3 yards because I just loved it, and now I am down to about half a yard and have not seen anything to replace it with!

    Thank you for answering me. I will just have to keep on the hunt for it. LOL!
