Table Runner Repair

Spunky, our cat, refuses to sleep on the soft, heated bed we made for her. She'll sleep on just about anything else, that we don't want her to sleep on. So it was no surprise that she took over the autumn table runner - but only at night when we couldn't catch her. It became so dirty, I had to wash it.

Which led to the two main felt pieces shrinking at different rates and some of the felt leaves bleeding color onto the light background. Argh.

I took the main panel off the background, washed it - more than once - to get rid of the color bleed, and then stitched it down again. It was easier than making the whole runner a second time.
