Insert Snappy Title Here...

AYOS (Another Year of Schnibbles) continued with Carrie's pattern, ISTH or i.s.t.h.

If you remember, at first I was skeptical of the color combination - blue and red.
Then I sewed first block - or in fact - found matching and pleasing fabrics for it. So I decided: I really need a new Christmas tablerunner for my table! If it'll be a nice one, then I'll use this pattern again and sew the other tablerunner for the present.

 
 After sewing four stars I was pleased with the length... but then began 'the problems'.
What about the borders?
Shall I make the checkerboards as in the original pattern or shall I borrow the idea, which I saw at Sinta Renee?
Shall I use the stripe fabric or not?

While I was thinking of those hard questions... it was better do something else!

The second OPAM - finished ;o) And matches nicely with my mother's blouse!

The knitting 'cleaned up' my head. I made decisions :-)

... and before I realised the whole tablerunner was finished!
PURTAP-purrTAP, well-done!!!
I'm pleased and not skeptical anymore... blue and red are spectacular together - atleast with brown ;o)

The end... a photo mystery...

Where is the cat?
;D
We'll be back soon...

Kaitaliinasta tuli kaunis, tuota reunavaihtoehtoa olisin ehdottanutkin... Kaunis on myös työ, jonka alla kissa piilottelee :)

Your cat is adorable and your table runner is beautiful. I like the shades of red and blue you used for the stars. I'm also impressed you already quilted it!
