STUK Swap Progress

I've *almost* finished my Spicing Up The Kitchen swap package!  I have to sew the binding on this table runner and make another small gift and it will be headed to it's new home!
I'm pretty happy with the final result.  I sort of wish I would have appliqued the letters with black instead of pink, but I just couldn't bring myself to sew black thread on this sweet runner!  Also, I chose about 3 other fabrics for the binding, but I didn't have enough of any of them so I went with this Amy Butler print.  Again, not my top choice, but I think it looks sweet.  I hope my secret partner likes it!

I think your table runner looks gorgeous but here is a suggestion for next time - instead of suing black which would have been very heavy on such a pretty runner, try brown - a dark chocolate or a milk chocolate - stands out like black, looks fairly neutral but is much softer. Just a thought. Happy stitching

I too will often use brown or a dark grey instead of black for outline stitching. It just depends.

I think that this is simply adorable and your partner will be thrilled to get it!
