Copper Cinnamon And Chocolate Brownies...

Wool Table Runner by Rose Clay at ThreeSheepStudio.com

A little bit of hand embroidery to connect
the wool petals...

Once the embroidery is complete,
I pinned the center panel to the deep cinnamon wool.
This runner is just under 45 inches long x 7 inches wide.

The center panel was blanket stitched in place,
starting at a short side.  I used Valdani
variegated Perle Cotton Thread in Chocolate Brownies
to assemble the wool table runner.

Copper Cinnamon colored wool and
Chocolate Brownies Perle Cotton - LOVE !

The edge is a self binding...
I simply folded the sides of the wool backing
to the front and blanket stitched in place. 

I did it the easy way and just folded over 
an inch or two at a time and pinned in place.  
When I blanket stitched to that point,
I would then fold over another inch or two.
This allows you more control when working with
a very long side.

Before pinning the center panel onto the 
wool backing, I hand embroidered simple
initials and the year onto the back.
