Pomegranate Table Runner

I've been trying to finish up on some Christmas presents.

I haven't worked with wool for the longest time, and it was so nice to be back with a needle and thread.

I thought it was only fitting I work on a project that has pomegranates. I even made another batch of pomegranate jelly last night.

I love the texture and variety of working with hand dyed wools.


The pattern is called "Antique Pomegranates" by Ginger Sanchez Designs

Working with hand dyed wools is always a joy. It's like sewing thru butter! Your work is beautiful.

Ooh I love pomegranates in quilts, they have such an eyecatching character about them, and yours is stunning xo

Dawn said...

Oh I LOVE this!! Of course I love it too because of all the pomegranate jelly I made too.

Love the long tongues on the edges Nedra! I'm glad you got to work with wool again so you'd remember how wonderful it is! LOL

Your wool pomegranate table runner is beautiful. I also love working on wool hand projects. I have made several pillow tops while recovering from surgery followed by viral pneumonia. The pics are on my blog, take a look. I will make them into pillows after I am well enough to sew. Merry Christmas to you and your family.

Your runner is lovely...some day I might get into wools.
I like the fact that they don't ravel without a turned edge!

Jana said...

Oh that is beautiful!

Beautiful wool work. Someday I'll work with wool more. I've never had pomegranate jelly. I think I told you that last year. Maybe I'll ask to taste it when we get together this spring.
