Thankful Table Runner

(image courtesy of PurlBee)

The reason I started this blog was for a place to store ideas, recipes, and inspiration all in one place. It's an online resource for me that I refer to all the time myself.

So when I saw a Thanksgiving idea this afternoon, I had to sit down to store it here so I can make it sometime before this next Thanksgiving. Basically you make any table runner that suits you, but make sure the center is a blank canvas. Each year ask your children to draw a picture of what they are most thankful for, and attach it to your runner along with the year. You could embroider them, have them draw with fabric pens right on the runner (if you're brave!), scan the pictures and print them onto iron-on transfer paper, etc.

I can't wait to get started on this way to make a lasting memory each year!

this is so weird you posted about a table runner today...I just got online to find a new one for our table. I've been wanting/needing one for a while, and I wish I was talented enough to make one (or had a sewing machine for that matter), but I'm not. SO, I found a cute, cute one on for a good price.

I would love a post on Tiny Tidbits about easy, casual, everyday centerpieces. I'm looking for something I can leave on the table every day. Because I know you have all the time in the world for things like that! :O
