More Saturday in the Country

Here's a picture of the table runner that I had laid out before I left on Wednesday. 


When I came back to it last night, there was something about it that I didn't like.  It was okay, and sometimes okay is okay, but I wanted this one to sing and dance.  So it was back to the drawing board.  I started playing around with the squares and came up with this design.


I had never used a design like this, but it spoke to me.  I left the squares laying out over night, and I still liked them this morning.  Here is a picture of the finished table runner.

I'm pleased with the way this one turned out.  I will be listing it for sale on eBay.  My cousin in Seattle told me about a web site,, that sells handcrafted items only.  Has anyone had any experience with them?

  1. Hey Linda, There is a website for women entrepeneurs at Several of those members use etsy as their craft selling site. You can also google reviews of etsy and success stories of etsy. Just saw another craft site called and I know nothing about this site. I am working on getting some things made and pictures taken to try etsy. There are etsy groups on vox. That might be a good place to start.Rainy here in Seattle.Debbie

  2. Thanks for the information. I'll check it out! I've been busy sewing since I got home yesterday. Have another runner laid out already to work on tomorrow. Since they are for Valentine's Day, I think I will list them on eBay. Holiday things seems to sell pretty well there. My denim runner with the appliqued hearts did really well.
    Good luck getting some things listed!
