MGP DIY: table runner

Spring has hit Austin and the gardening bug has hit me.  I've been busy with new plantings indoors and out, and last weekend, I made a container garden out of an old, rusty industrial pan (for baking four loaves of bread at a time) and 4 different varieties of echevaria succulents.

Then I decided that my table garden needed to be paired with a new spring table runner, so I hemmed a long, narrow scrap of Grand Jubilee Licorice, and voila!  Runners are incredibly easy to make and they can really spruce up a table--and the whole room--with just a strip of color and pattern.
