    This is for a lady who will celebrating her 80th next month. Her year of birth therefore 1930, I thought of using Thirties fabrics to make a table runner - she likes entertaining friends to tea.
    Enjoyed making it, hope she likes it too!

    Eighty! Wow ... and still entertaining. Bless her heart! I can see her using this on her table very easily with her fine china teapot and cups. You did good! I Love your way of thinking... Practicality and Beauty.
