"Makes Me Happy Monday" number 24.

Hello,

Welcome to Monday Number 24. Wow the year is just flying by.This week I am very happy that I have finished my "Peace" table runner. Designed and stitched with love by me. The final measurements for the table runner are 19.5inches wide and it is 41 inches in length.
I fell in love with the material that has the little peace doves on it. I decided to embroider the word peace in different languages. The block above has Pax which is Latin and Paz which is Spanish.


This block has peace in English and pace which is Italian.

The final block has vrede which is peace in Dutch. Damai is peace in Indonesian. Our children learnt Indonesian at school as there second language. They can still remember quite a bit of Indonesian. I am pleased that I have used up a fair amount of the half metre of fabric I purchased on impulse last week. Now if only I can get the rest of the stash down as fast. So I hope everyone who visits my blog leaves with some peace in there heart and spreads the peace around the world.
Peace.
Bev C

That's a beautiful runner. I love the pretty blue fabric and think you are very good buying and using a piece of fabric so quickly. Well done! At least I have used the piece that had been gathering dust now. Languages are good fun and it's lovely that you have used several in your runner.

Ahh, I told Chris you were teasing when you showed vrede and damai last tweek! That's a lovely idea to put "peace" in different languages. The colours certainly make the runner very peaceful to look at.
