~ New Table Runner On the Horizon ~

Happy March 1st! The weather here today has been gorgeous, temps in the lower 70's as I put together this post. The dogs and I took a short sash say around the yard earlier, now for the evening I'll be pinned to the desk, it was great to get out for just a bit.

You may recall I've been reworking the dining room, as a reminder you can revisit that post HERE.  It's taken on a life of it's own over the last few weeks. Last winter my girlfriend showed me this piece of fabric, I immediately fell in love with the design, the weight and color scheme. Never thinking in a million years it would be a piece I would use in the dining room. They say copying someone is the highest form of flattery.
I wanted a coordinating fabric for the back and chose the one on the left. The deep chocolate brown flows well with the dining room curtains. I hope you can see the deep blues,  rich greens and touches of red. All the colors I love to use around me.
Mr. P has shared a lot over the years his love for horses and those he had as a child. I was hoping he would say something positive about the fabric. He did folks said, "now that's kind of pretty." Trust me, from him that's high praise. lol... So, it's a win win situation.

Now, I just have to find the time to cut it out and put it together..
After looking at the pictures and playing around with the fabric, I'm now leaning towards 2 separate runners with napkins. The fabrics are good quality and quite heavy. So, now another decision has to be made before I begin. :-)) One runner or two? I would love to hear what you would do.
Until next time....
