In readiness for Christmas

In spite of the fact I was laid low for a couple of days with the flu [that visited without invitation!] I have managed to complete a Christmas table runner, or it would be equally suitable as a chair back, or cover for that plastic box of 'stuff' taking up a corner of the room.
 
This is not the first of these 'runners' I have made over the years; one was considerably larger, but they are simple to construct, use 2½" of a fat quarter and a few other pieces of fabric that one often has in their stash.  Add some holly leaves, and berries [red buttons suffice] and the finished result is bright and colourful.

Your table runner is very colourful, Shirley. It is a strange time of the year to be getting the flu. :-( I hope you are feeling much better now.
