And Yet More Christmas

Here are a couple shots of the table runner I wove as a Christmas gift for my mother-in-law. We've been waiting for these pictures for several weeks now. I should have taken my camera with me, but Tim's brother is a camera-aholic, so I assumed he could handle it. In the words of his wife...well, that should probably stay in the family.

So, this is an overshot pattern called Star Of Bethlehem. I tried to research it's history and origin, but couldn't find much other than it dated back to at least the 1800's and was most likely an American pattern. This runner was designed to be used when the table leaves were folded down, but Jeff rightly extended them for the picture. Thanks Jeff :-).
