I have found more time this summer to hand sew during other activities than I had all winter long. I am just finishing yet another neglected project. I borrowed a similar runner from my sister-in-law just following Halloween last year. I loved the primitive feeling of the cats and pumpkins. I just used some wool felt I happened to have on hand and tried to replicate the runner. This is the end result. I made mine a little longer and more narrow. I am getting good at the blanket stitch. I only skewered my finger once! Now there is no more pressure to be done by next Halloween so my sister-in-law can use her decoration once more. Hooray.
