    Hi to all. I made this table runner this week and I really like it and wanted to put it on my table. BUT my kids and husband don't like the fabric and they also don't think it looks enough like christmas. I like it alot but I don't want them getting it dirty if I am not going to keep it. So what to do?
    Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah, and Happy anything else I forgot, to all. :-D

    oh, it is red, white and black.

    On my table.

    Very pretty! Look at it this way, if it's not xmas looking enough for them, save it for after the holidays, then use it! Very nice fabric, & you did a great job on it. Some people just aren't into black & red for xmas...

    Personally I don't see Christmas at all in it. But, I think I have some of those fabrics and they're my favorite color combo. It turned out nice.
