    Hi all, just finished the top of a Christmas Table Runner that I am making for my DS and DDIL. They made a special request so they could use it to decorate the table for Christmas. Since I am going to visit them at the end of April I figured I would get started pronto!!
    I called it mixed media because I painted the faces. Hope I don't offend any of you traditional quilters but I like how it came out. Sorry the big picture is blurry, I did not notice that the large picture was blurry until I had downloaded it and put my camera away. Just did not have the time to start all over again. The other pictures came out ok.
    I still have to do the back and sandwich them together then quilt the rest. I think I am going to do mirror image quilting on the figures then snow flakes on the background.
    Hope you all enjoy the pics! :oops: :oops: :oops:

    A blurry full view, sorry!

    Thanks poco and Fiberartist and Marcia. I made this with my 3 young grandsons in mind. They stay little for such a short time. They are 11, 8 and 5 years old. My best buds too, LOL.

    I love all the different medias you used! Such a cute pattern - is it your own design?

    Love your table runner and especially like how you stitched around the cuffs of Santa's sleeves. It is a really nice effect

    Thank you all for your compliments and comments. This was so much fun to do.
    My sister has suggested to me that I hold off on doing the quilting until I get up to see her. She wants me to do it on her new long arm quilter. I am biting my nails because I have never used one before and I am only going to be with her for three days then we are going south to my son's house for my second grandsons Holy Communion. I am planning on giving this to them then.
    So do you all think I should wait and do the quilting there or do it now while I am still here?? I know I can do a good job on my machine here but do not know how I will do on her long arm. She did say she would help me.
