A new runner complete

Well, I talked about making a runner as my next project in October of last year.  I did get side tracked and made several doilies since this.  The runner is now complete, but it wasn't the one I was thinking about in October.  That one is still on my "to do" list.  This runner measures approximately 56 inches x 13 inches.  Made with #10 thread.  Here are some pictures of it in its new home.

Gardenhouse Lilies

A relative simple little thing called Gardenhouse Lilies.  I used up some vintage thread I had in a larger size to make this one.  I believe this is the last of this thread in yellow that I have.  The doily is being used to display a fresh canned jar of yellow summer squash pickles.

Sunny Disposition

The name of this doily just called for the color yellow.  I used some vintage DMC thread I have had for several  years.  It is larger than #10, but I really don't think it's #5 thread...anyway, I like the way a simple pattern turned out.  The bowl was my Mothers and a cherished item in my kitchen.
