I made several edgings this year going for a certain look. This is one that isn't quite what I was looking for but not bad and works with the material I attached it to. I'm not sure you can see just how well the green in the edging goes with the green in the material.

I used Lizbeth Leaf Green Medium #684 and Ecru #603 in size 10.
It's interesting that much of the fabric I found this year have this shade of green in them. I could almost use this color in every table runner I've been working on. And I have found a lot of fabric this year, so much that I could make runners for several years and never buy any more material except for backings. This fun fabric is one that I picked up at the store that is going out of business.
I was having a hard time coming up with a name for this edging. It doesn't necessarily look like anything, I didn't make it for any particular person, and I don't want to name it by the color, so what should I name it? Did you know there are places that generate names? I tried a site called "Behind the Names: Random Name Generator
and it gave me 'Eleonore'. It works.
I've been spending a lot of time getting ready for the craft show this coming weekend, sewing in ends, coming up with prices, and planning the booth layout. I'm feeling pretty good about it right now. We'll see how I feel come Friday night. :-0
