My SIL has a late December birthday and decorates her apartment in silver and pastels for the holidays.  I got a move on doing this table runner so that I could give it to her on Thanksgiving to enjoy for the season. 









The embroidery pattern is "Nutcracker Sweets" by Mollie Johanson aka Wild Olive.  I hand stitched the designs on some white Kona cotton and raw-edge appliqued them onto a quilt-sandwich of pink fabric from JoAnn and some Warm & White batting.  I added the blue binding and hand stitched it to the back (my first time!)  Some free motion quilting would probably have been nice for the background, but doing it with my current skills would have made this one sad table runner.  The finished size is 36" x 13."  For more detailed photos, you can view these in my Flickr photostream (linked below).

Comments and suggestions are much appreciated.  Thanks for looking!

Thank you!  I need to try taking some better photos of it, it is quite bright and cheerful in person.
