I am so thrilled with this piece!! I stippled the gold plain and patterned fabric only. It turned out just so nice, I almost want to keep it!! I really hope the SIL likes this, even though it's 6 months late!! And the DH built me an extension arm for the sewing machine which is pretty good. I need to varethane it as it's not quite slippery enough. But it cost $2 plus his time. What a sweetie I have.

That table topper is gorgeous! You can make me one when you make yours!!!

And kudos to hubby for the extension table. I need either one of those, or the table where the machine can drop in.

Very pretty table runner. :up: Great job.

The extension table looks great! I have a plastic extension table that came with one of my machines, but I've been after hubby to build me a larger one. I'll have to show him the picture. :smile:

Where should I send my address??? Great topper-you did a wonderful job on it. I too have the plastic extension table that came with my machine but I like the larger one your dh made for you. I'm going to have to show this to my son who is very handy with that kind of stuff.

Beautiful table topper :up: . I also like the extension table. What is it made of? Looks like MDF.

Great job on the table topper, they will love it. And the extention arm is really cool. I was just thinking yesterday that I needed one.

It would make a great project for me to make myself. I don't want to wait for DH or DS to make one for me. Just wonder if I have the materials on hand now???
