    Springtime Runner

    I wanted to make something cute for display that shouted spring has sprung! :-) Just a little piece to change out with the present Table Runner I had displayed over our dining area. I saw a pattern that intrigued me on shttp://www.craftpassion.com/?s=Songbird-tree-sun-applique-patterns&x=0&y=0un-applique-patterns. I have changed the pattern somewhat from half a tree with one branch to a whole tree with two branches and the smaller limbs are actually the cut-outs between the thin branch and the wider branches. It just seemed to need more. ;-) So, I got out my scraps and cut out several leaves, and the musical notes. I'm still thinking about putting some little butterflies in the lower corners, but hung it without them for now.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    definitely a happy spring runner... with the backing you chose, looks like you could use it for more than just spring. Great job.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    Just in time for spring...the birds are a chirping away in their tree and letting the world know they are ready for a change. Cute runner. Thanks for sharing.
