Black and white table runner

There are times when you want to trade with other people. Trade your work for their work which is beyond your crafting abilities When I saw lampwork goodies made by Yennene I simply knew that I have to have some earrings although I don't wear jewelry at all. I just love the way they are made. I chose two pairs of her wonderfull earrings and Yennene agreed to trade for a table runner.

It took me a while to finish the table runner. First I was waiting for the fabric to be shipped, then I had suddenly lots of non-sewing thing to do and finally when I started, my machine decided not to cooperate with me. I managed to convince it to work :P and finished the table runner today. 

It's simple, monochromatic, without any unneceassary quilting and with chinese character at both ends - this is of Yennene's choice. I used fussible web to stick cut out chinese character to the backgroud fabric first and then I machine sewed the edges with satin stitch.
I have to admit I'm quite pleased with the end effect. 

It's quite windy last days and it was a little bit difficult to make a good photo. 
And I have to make one outside, as I don't have a fitting modern interior to show off the table runner at home :P

And the back. The plan was to make it completely black. But I managed to make a mistake in calculating the amout of fabric which I needed to order... and, well... I didn't have enough of black.
