I asked our older daughter what colours she would like for her hall table runner. She suggested teal and lemon in a vintage style. This may seem quite innocuous, but by "vintage" she probably means 60's - 70's. Oh dear - that is a bit close to the bone!
Anyhows, I will have to go fabric shopping yet again as I don't have any of this "vintage" stuff and I do like the sound of the teal and lemon!
