A Child is Born

A co-worker commissioned me to make a Christmas table runner as a gift for her sister. She choose the colors and asked for a spiritual theme. This is what I designed. I bring it into work for her tomorrow. I hope she likes it.

I found the embroidery designs on Embroidery Library. The designs stitched out very well. I used gold metallic thread for the stars to make them stand out.

I am pleased with the finished project and I plan to make one for our table. Though it would look nice as a wall hanging, not only horizontal but vertical as well, so it may not end up on our table after all.

I am not sure what colors to use. My husband wants the traditional green and red and I have both those fabrics with gold in them so they would pull out the gold in the stars.

What colors would you choose?

Enjoy the journey,      Jackie
