I will admit that I'm a little worried. I think that I tightened my gauge a little so there is a possibility that my table runner will be more trapezoidal than rectangular.
Right now its not terrible but I would not be feeling too well if I had to rip the whole thing out and start over - or at least start over 2 inches from the end.
That, my friends, would be depressing.
But for now I'm just plugging along hoping that a good blocking will solve my problem in the end.

First, my apologies for the picture quality. I have found that while a lot of things can photograph just fine inside, a painting needs to be outside. And right now it's 11pm and I'm pretty sure it's lighter inside than it is out.
I'm not sure on the size, I think it's 16x24 (I didn't pay attention) and painted in acrylics on canvas. I call the painting "baobab" as it is inspired by Le Petit Prince, or the Little Prince. If you have not read the book, I highly suggest it - and even more so read it in French, the original language, if you can.
It is funny because after I painted it, I sat and played the cloud game in my photo and it seems I did a distinct Nessie or sea turtle (depending on who you are) and a rather cloudy looking whale. And then I looked at the painting. Knowing the story and the purpose of the baobab, I began to actually feel sorry for the little moon/planet.
I dunno - I'm such a dork.
Anywhoozles - that's all I have for today. I hope you have a great day!
