Grandmother's Flower Garden Runner

I did it!  The Grandmother's Flower Garden table runner is completely pieced and waiting its turn on the frame! 
 It's big-and will look very striking on the table-soon!
As I watered the flowers this morning, 
I noted the blooms inside the bromeliads.  
So delicate and such a funny color compared to its host!
I spent some time at the lathe! 
 This vase is from a Sycamore branch. 
 I left some bark it and didn't worry about getting it completely round--I like the look of the vase emerging from the branch! 
 It is 10' tall and about 3" at its widest. 
 This one is going to my sister--a thank you for the gift of the visit last month.
