Fandango coaster

Well while you guys have been tatting the TIAS I've been working on all sorts of 'stuff'!!! 

I was looking round our dark, narrow hallway the other day and decided it needed cheering up. We've got a loooooong radiator shelf there which looks as dull as ditch water and which we're always 'dumping' things on!!! I decided it needed cheering up so a runner to go on it would be the answer. 

The Fandango Coaster is not wide enough to 'do' but it's a good start as I can put a border round it when the length has been achieved. If I did two side by side then it would be wide enough but too wide for a border. I think borders finish things off - simple ones!!!

Anyway - I went into my threads and came up with these two together. Soooo pretty but I'm not sure I like the variegated on this design. I've got to get hold of BC3 but he sometimes tries to have the weekend off!!!

This should keep you occupied for a while! A runner won't be finished in a couple of nights. I like the colours, but if they're too bright, keep the turquoise and pair it with plain pink perhaps - that would still look cheerful.

nice, but I think 2 solid colors would show the design better. Have fun with the runner, how long does it need to be?

Love the pattern, and that thread is bright and happy.
