Is it summer yet? I’m ready for these weird cold fronts to go away and at least let some spring in. Over the weekend we took a walk around Lady Bird Lake and got to see the first signs of new life peeking out – green buds here and there, quickly being nibbled away by squirrels. Besides that, we are still in our nesting phase and my husband decided to bring home some potted orange daisies that he loves. Yep, Mr. Spring, please come quickly!
In the meantime, you can be working on this lively table runner to spruce up the cold nights! Windy Point Park sprung from the Stars and Stripes collection by My Mind’s Eye for Riley Blake Designs. Like I always say - you don’t always come across patriotic collections this cute, but when you do, you turn them into pinwheels.
The pinwheels are already fun, but add in the ribbon-tied stems and easy but interesting borders, and you’ve got a tablerunner just waiting for your July 4th picnic!
I hope this pattern brings some sunshine into your home! Shop owners, you can find this at United Notions and Checkers as ISE-117.
