Good Morning all! :) And welcome to any new friends who found me through Good Things Utah. Feel free to stay a while and browse around.
The following tutorial is for the table runner featured on today’s segment. On Friday I will be sending a free mini-book download of all the items from the tablescape (napkins, placemats, napkin rings, & runner) as well as a few other Thanksgiving tutorials, ideas, and recipes to everyone on my email list. So be sure your name is on the list! You can sign up over there on the right.
Have a wonderful day!
