Lest We Forget

It is Remembrance Day here in Canada - not a statutory holiday, but a holiday for government workers (of which I am one).  I won't be going to any of the ceremonies, but I will have my own moment of silence at 11:00, thinking about all the mothers who sent their boys to their death for our freedom.

I haven't been getting a lot of any quilting done lately.  We have decided to do some major renovations to our house, and that is taking up all our time.  So, I will share a table runner that I made several years ago.


This was a kit from Sugar Pine Quilt Company in Canmore.  (If you ever visit Banff, you have to take a side trip here - it is only a half hour away, and is a fabulous shop!)  I liked how the swirly background suggested the leaves blowing in the wind, and copied that in my quilting.

Lovely table runner, Colleen. Such pretty fall fabrics!

Hope the renovations are going well and you will soon find some time to sew. Happy weekend to you! (Stay warm...)

One of these days I'm going to keep my coffee table clear enough so that I can use some of my table runners. Your is lovely.
