I am so glad my mother made a Christmas runner- well she actually does every year. She make somewhat like this, red and green. She also made a runner with red and gold. These table runners contribute to how our house, especially our dining area looks.

Hopefully by the time we get closer to Christmas I'll be good enough at crocheting to give this one a try! Otherwise, I might try to make the same thing, but knit. We'll see. It's so cute and festive!
