Friends Having Fun swap

I love being a member of this online swap group - the name says it all - a bunch of friends having fun stitching for each other. This time I was sewing for Shez and as we were catching up the weekend before last, it was even better that I could hand deliver it.
The theme was Tilda - either a Tilde project from one of her books or a project using Tilda fabric. I opted for the latter and made Shez this table runner.
It is a Leanne Beasley pattern - which has some flower stitcheries stitched randomly.
And, of course, I had to add some other bits a pieces - a Tilda tin, Tilda spools, some cottage garden threads and Shez's favourite spotty fabric. I know she loved it and has found a place for it on her table. Cheryl
