FO Friday - Cross Stitch Table Runner

I have an FO this week!  However, this one was completed by my mom.

I went through my craft studio several months ago and got rid of a bunch of stuff I didn't need, want, or things I felt I'd never get to.  I had a printed cross stitch table runner kit that someone had given to me for a wedding gift 25 years ago.  I always thought it would be fun to do but never got around to doing it.  When my mom saw that I was getting rid of it, she snapped it up.

I had no idea she'd been working on it until my birthday when she surprised me with the finished runner.





The kit even came with lace that my mom sewed on with a tiny vintage sewing machine she recently found.


It's a little wrinkled from being gift wrapped.
I probably should have ironed it for the photos.


This was such a sweet surprise!
