I bet you're all sitting out there thinking, "Oh, thank GOD. That's just what I needed on this Monday morning to make my life complete. A table runner tutorial."

Or perhaps you're not as cynical and jaded as I am, and you've clicked on the link thinking, "Oh, fun. I'll check this out."

Either way, hi. Happy Monday. (Even though that's an oxymoron.) *waves* And a happy birthday to my saby bister Emily, who is five years younger. Not that I resent her for being five years younger. I don't. Much. Hope it's a great one, Em.

So a friend of mine works at a very fancy furniture store here in town and every so often, she brings me remnants, or the samples of upholstery that they have in the store so that the fancy people that shop there can decide what pattern they want their new sofa to be. The powers that be at the couch companies discontinue fabric a LOT, so I tip my hat to them. Thanks, unnamed sofa folks. And thanks to my friend Tammy and her husband who schlep the fabric over to my house. I love fabric. And I simply ADORE free, high quality, gorgeous fabric. It's like Christmas, Easter and the tooth fairy coming all at once.

Anyway, I Have all this fabric. And I remember a year (or so) ago, my mother sent me an email with a link to a crafting/sewing blog with a message instructing me to make whatever it was on the link. I get those a lot. "I don't have time to do this, but here. You do it." Mom's emails make me smile. They usually start in the middle of a thought, but the thing is, I totally know where she's coming from AND where she's going. Long story short, I can't remember the link, only what there was a picture of: A table runner, centerpiece thingy made from circles of pretty fabric.

So that's what we're doing here, today. Try to contain your excitement.

How-to and snark under the cut. )

Anyway, tutorial over. If you find yourself with an overabundance of fabric (if, indeed there IS such a thing,) make one of these. Even my boys, who never notice anything aesthetically pleasing unless it tastes good while they're shoveling it into their mouths, said, "Oh, hey, Mom. That's cool."

It's COOL. You heard it here, first.
