“Angels 2010”, table runner.
The pillow and table runner were created by experimenting with the shapes of brush strokes when using acrylic paint. The first piece was the red table runner, made on fine linen. Both pillows were done black/gray on coarse linen.
The randomly placed dots gets the stripes moving.
The runner is stitched on a band of linen, about 16 centimeters across, 8 threads per centimenter. Stitch the runner together, so that it forms a pocket (as shown on the photo). Put a glass/vase into the pocket for flowers, or fill it with chocolates. The pocket can also lie flat on its side.

Each square on the runner displays an interpretation of what I think is special for each of the first six months of the year. I’ve chosen the orange fields to make a special effect across the runner.
