Spring has Sprung

Posted on: May 14, 2013

Hello all, At the beginning of the year I decided I would make a table runner for each season or holiday. This one is my spring one. I sewed the first 2 one for Valentines snx ond fof St Patricks day. This is my spring one. I finished this little table runner last week and have been waiting for the sunshine to take pics. I used Tunisian crochet and I got the idea from this afghan http://appleblossomdreams.blogspot.com/2012/10/rockman-afghan-cal-week-1.html?m=1
I made 4 strips of 15 squares using the tunisian simple stitch each square is made up of 10 stitches by 7 rows for each color block. I did a border of shell stitch.

The yarns are simply soft and an H hook.

Your table is exactly the same colour as mine (I’m sitting at it right now)! You’re giving me ideas…

I love the color of my table! We have had it for about 25 years.

I’m looking at mine now and thinking – oooh a nice runner would look really good!

A runner nicely dresses up a table, I used to keep a tablecloth on it but never liked the way they always seemed to end up lopsided. I was continually straightening it. So far the runners don’t need straightening.

Plus tablecloths can get tugged on with disastrous results!

So true!!!

This is so pretty. What a great idea. Thank you for the link. šŸ™‚

Thank you and your welcome! I really enjoyed making it.
