Mr. B Revisited

I have been really slow getting to my projects and completing them.  I finally pulled out the rest of the ties to make a table runner.  I did not realize until I sewed a few together that I needed to iron fusible interfacing to the back.  Once I did that it made things much easier to sew and to stay in place. I am happy with the result. 
 What color ties belong together?
 They seem to take over the area when working on these.
 Iron, iron and more iron.
 Now to cool a bit.
  Sewing them together.
 They must be trimmed straight now.

 Snip snip

 Sewn together! Looking good for the holidays.
 I like it!
Every other tie was sewn down with a little star.

Christmas Table Clothe

It seems like every Christmas I want to change things.  The Joann's by me was consolidating with another Joann's so they were trying to sell what they could so they would not have to move the merchandise. I fell in love with this green fabric and found the red pom pom to accent it.  It was not hard fast and it was really fun to sit at with my white china.
