1) Celebrate Spring
2) Be inspired by Rashida's runner in at least one way: the pattern, the linen, the zigzag, the tricolor theme, the vintage fabric....
The bunnies and squirrels have been so busy running in our backyard; my husband and I think that there is always something new happening in our yard this time of the year, such as a new flower blooming or new leaves budding. So I thought what better way to introduce spring than to bring these flowers onto our dining room table? I made this runner with linen, of course. It was my first time working with linen, and I must say... linen is not easy to work with! It moved around so much and was so stretchy! I ironed a medium weight interfacing to it, and it helped significantly.

Had to include a ladybug here!
This was my first sew along, and I totally enjoyed it. I have also posted this photo in the Flickr Pool. Be sure to stop by on Wednesday, April 20 to vote for my table runner!
