Table topper swap gift..





In the previous post I showed you what I had received in the table runner swap from Tereasa and this is the table topper I made for Jenny......this pattern is from a gorgeous book called "From The Heart" by Natalie Bird.....and boy was this one a challenge, I have never done anything round before, nor had I done a scalloped border or made a bias binding, but anyway I had a bash....I did learn a few things, which was great, but most of all I loved making and I this really enjoyed the challenge and Jenny loved it....head still fuzzy, thanks to everyone for all their lovely messages....you are all just so thoughtful...
