It seems like ages ago

It seems like ages ago since I started this project!  My Friday ladies started this runner, and I decided to make one too as a shop sample. It took me ages to needle-turn all those pieces,  ages, and in one clean swoop, it was ruined.  No seriously, Roseanne asked if I wanted her trim it for me.  I said ok.  Well, she accidently cut into the centre, about 2 inches in.  What could I say?  The look on her face.... I thought she was going to vomit!  LOL. 

 
So, it sat in a pile ever since, until recently. 
 
 
You cant even notice the join!  I ended up cutting the applique ends off and putting in a piece of the background.  That way, there was a join on both ends.
 
 
See, all good!!

Great save! Sometimes we need distance from a project before we can see the "light"

Jo said...

What a save. I bet your friend won't ever offer to help someone cut anything again. Poor lady.
Nice finish though
