simple christmas sewing ~

hi there ~ and again ~ happy thanksgiving week. i’m sure looking forward to it, and i hope you all are too!

as i was playing with some christmas fabrics recently, i spotted a leftover piece of linen, and it sparked an idea for a simply sewn christmas runner.  burlap is so big in fashion this holiday season, {it seems}, so i thought i’d put together some christmassy fabrics and see what happened, except i used a linen fabric as that’s what i had on hand ~ just for kicks n giggles.  this piece lays on our coffee table:

i added a green cotton, that i ripped on the straight of grain, and just stitched it down to the linen, {yes, i only eye-balled it ~ {no measuring} and then stitched the red print on top of the green print.  then just some frayed edges, and a triple stitch along the edges.  i really didn’t get too serious about it, as i just wanted to mess around and see what the linen would like with red and green for christmas.

 and another smaller, linen piece that was leftover from the cutting of the first one.  this is quite narrow, and can even lay on top of the other linen piece if you like that layered look… which … maybe i do?  i’m not sure.

 but i was in the mood for some hand-stitching, so added a very simple snowflake embroidered throughout the feathers with iridescent razzle dazzle.  i really enjoyed doing it.

 thank you to all of you!
   happy greetings for thankful holiday.
