Here is what my table usually looks like (I do try and keep it cleaned off but somehow it doesn't stay that way) it has marker on it and it just always looks blah.
Here are the tops of my table runner and place mats, I am very happy with them. They are fun and pretty! Now I just need to get myself down to the fabric store and get batting and some backing fabric.
Now I should return to my Shirt-Stripe Boxes!
