    Well.. if it was me and they said in the thread what colors they like for winter, I would let that be the driving force, but I would maybe pick an element of their sign up sheet colors to tie in to that. Like.. just as a for instance.. say they said they liked blues and whites for wintery colors, but their decor is reds and beiges. I would make a primarily blue and white and put like.. red "berries" or something.

    But that's of course, me... haha.. do whatever you want :P

    I'm over the moon excited that I have a name - and even more excited that I found the perfect pattern to make a winter themed runner; winter is my favorite season.

    My partner indicated they have a table with a NORMAL shape and they have colors found on the color wheel.

    Yea, I got my name. And, the colors she requested fit perfectly with the fabric I was hoping to use!

    Just saw this picture and think I will have to try it - would make an awesome table topper for a square table!

    Travelinggranny, oh, I like that, it is very pretty! I have to tell you all that I was really just joking about being done! If you thought I was serious, so sorry! I have got my fabric picked out. I don't know if it would be considered a Winter table topper or not, but the good note is you could use it any time you wanted to!

    I am back to sewing, My table is rectangle or square, depending if I have the leaf in or not!

    Maybe I will take a nap instead of sew... both sound good! My Secret pal lives in the USA... She is a female and has a pet!

    NO MORE CLUES for now~

    LOL I put that my table is oval, but now that I'm *actually* looking at it, it isn't... it's rectangle (size depends on how many leaves are in) and the corners are just rounded. Oh, well. Same difference, right?

    Got my name, partner lives in a state beginning with the letter I. 3 of my last swap partners have lived in this state! I have to confess that I have never sewn a table topper before so I am digging for a pattern. and it will have earthy colors in it.

    I got it I got it!!! and taking bows.. dear dear Anastasia you didnt have a chance. lol.. I think my partner(s?) will be fun to work with so far I have this much to say about my partner(s?) quilting is a big hobby. yup its true. my partner(s?) quilt. a lot. also true. So I think its safe to say no matter what I make with fabric the tablerunner will be easy to make. I found two great patterns on equilter yesterday. I downloaded their patterns think two were $6.50 not bad at all. I am creative to a point. I wanted something special this time. Now to pull fabric. What a horrible job. boy spending time going through my fabric that is a tough time let me tellyou.. suddenly the oh I can use this or I can use that starts coming out and I could have ten runners finished in my mind. No I am not making ten. that is your last clue of the day too. oh I forgot my tablerunner(s?) will be leaving my home sometime in January. Unless we are allowed to ship earlier. Reading the rules is sooo helpful groan. I read them once that counts right? too bad my memory is not good enough for recall however. I wish my partner(s?) would post here or in their signature perhaps what color the really would like.. anything is hardly a color statement and encompasses some scary fabric like a Wrestling pro fabric in the snow. help you guys post what you love or really would love not to get.

    hehe.. there is nothing in the rules page about shipping early, just that it must be shipped BY date. so ship whenever you're done if you want. My person will probably see theirs sometime in february hahahah. And it will probably look like I mutilated it out of frustration. Have I mentioned that.. well.. I don't quilt? hehehe.. I can sew.. I can sew straight lines pretty darned well.. and I can do curvy ones ok.. but thats about it.. quilting.. whole new beast. hehe.

    *I*.. am really rather partial to the blue/white/silver kind of thing.. But.... I do love other things christmasy as well. I have to figure out which of the 80 things I posted as inspiration ideas I might want to turn into a table runner. or dig for something else.. hehe.

    I am still thinking apples and apple pie... Is this a wintry enough subject??? I would rather eat apple pie than Ice cream in the winter.... Well maybe not if the ice cream is Chocolate! Double double Chocolate wins over all other desserts...

    See how my mind works, I think about a table runner for two seconds and then my mind turns to sweets~

    Well.. I rather oddly enough, tend to eat ice cream more often in the winter than other times of the year. I think it's the while white fluffy creamy look of fresh snow.. gets me in the mood for ice cream.. but I do eat it in the summer as well. Almost never in spring and fall though.. kinda odd. I can't remember when I last ate some.. I think it was.. labor day maybe.. only because there was a get together kind of thing at my house? or maybe it was... that other holiday that happens around there? memorial day? I dunno.. ti's been awhile.. and i"m finally thinking I'd like to dig into the ice cream bucket again. So we have ice cream for apple pie for thursday. I got 2 apple pies.. RWAR!

    And yes.. double chocolate always wins.

    Oh no apple pie needs ice cream a nice french vanilla.. oh yes so toss in some creamwith your pie girly. And Anastasia my dear your a fine quilter. Quit fishing! lol.

    ok last ice cream I ate was pumpkin. Loved it the first tme but well you have to buy a quart and that is a lot of pumpkin ice cream. I am glad to have forced myself to eat it all so it does not burdon my freezer by taking up space. phew. that was tough. blues and whites and silvers have always been my go to for January decorating but now I think there are a billion options thanks to you here at the board. Anastasia you prompted a lot of artsy thinking. cool cool cool. I just found some very cool fabric for winter. that is your clue of the nite last one.

    Loupesprit that looks like a snowman to me hum.. you had me going for half minute could not figure it out at all what tha orange was for .. love this guessing game. and Jaba lets see a rock slide? that bottom multi and all those others a winter rock and snow quilt! hey wait a minute! that looks awfully close to being a tie die your pulling in your pile there..
    ok for the record Jan does not have a tie die livingroom. that should helpwhen picking her fabric. She does however have moose, bear and deer heads lining the fireplace wall. big heads. Antler chandeleers too. it works in her local. Actually it works here in the mountains too. I have a squirrel skull on my bookshelf next to a rattlesnake skin compliments of my hubby who happened to think I would LOVE them when he found them. Wonderous! how.. sweet? argh I am keeping him inside from now on.

    I thought my life was crazy but I stand corrected....you ladies have so much going on and so many irons in the fire....best luck in your new jobs, congrats to those who are retired..you worked hard to get there and for all of us in between who just try to go with the flow. I love just about every color except orange and will love what ever special table runner you make for me. Looking forward to getting to know you all better through this swap.

    Jaba - love the variety of blue fabric choices - reminds me of glistening snowflakes or iceicles hanging from a roof - oh the ideas for winter are endless.

    LoupEsprit - looks like the makings of a fun snowman - it reminds me of when my neice and nephew spent a late winter afternoon with me years ago and we went out and created this beautiful snowman, we got a little crazy when we couldn't find a proper hat for him so I cut the top from a fresh pineapple and we created a tropical snowman - oh we laughed and carried on like he was the best snowman ever.

    Elisabrat - next time you have a little too much of the same old same old icecream pick up a bottle of cream soda and make a float - pumpkin and vanilla cream - my favorite is vanilla and orange crush - tastes just like a tastey treat from DQ.
    Be good to yourself - do one thing each day that makes you smile.

    Thank You for my name Ana.... I'm excited and have started to mull over some ideas.

    Heee heeee Mine has an interesting theme and I'm looking forward to really give this a serious consideration.

    Ohh ice cream.... I currently have some that is a Blue Bunny Limited Edition from Duff of Ace of Cakes. It's Strawberries are Forever Shortcake. Yummmm

    Here ya go Brat.... my colors are like "country" . As in Hunter greens, Dark blues and Cranberry/Wine Reds. And the theme is Cabin.... think Man-ly... like Deer, Loons, Mooses, Cabins.... etc. I'm not what you would call really "girly" lol. Not sure how that would work for a "Winter" theme. Unless you find critter tracks in the snow.

    Toodles,
