Olive Table Runner and Hot Pad

I started these a while back but did not finish them because I was not sure how I wanted them finished. But then I got sick of them sitting around while I decided and just went with what I had on hand that caught my eye.

The hot pad got a simple purchased binding. I was going to make my own but the greens I had were not quite right. Why is it shown with a glass when it is a hot pad and not a coaster? Well, I
had one nearby & figured it would do fine for showing size. Not that it couldn't be used as a coaster, but it does have a layer of Insul-brite.

I put a small strip across the back corner for hanging purposes.

The runner is on the shorter side. Probably best for a side board or hall table or simply a small table. I just love the color combo. It is one of my faves.

I am glad I went with the bright red underside. It makes for a striking contrast.

You have become really good at those circles! I love those pillows from the last post. I finally made a pillow cover for the living room and don't like it. Good thing I have more fabric:)

those are so cute. Now the question is, how big is the glass? lol I've never feel bad about buying utilitarian items! {:-D
