The olive harvest is finished. Now is the time to prune the trees and burn the branches. Everyone here in this area has his freshly pressed olive oil. The olive oil here is green, the colour of the plain square in this table runner. Imagine the runner with some feta, olives, Greek rusks and olive oil on top. That would look lovely and will taste delicious!
I have a little "olive tree" in a pot. Look how many olives it has. I guess I should have picked them!
Another project was a bag with a concealed top edge zipper. I've never done that before, but some time ago I bought the Bag Making Bible from Lisa Lam and it showed me how to do this. Here is the result.
The bag is made from Indonesian batik napkins. I love batik fabric. The colours are so beautiful.
