Pineapple Tea Party

I finally finished the pineapple runner. I used size 3 thread and a size E hook. Pattern is from American School of Needlework #1094 Table Toppers in Thread Crochet. Another old booklet I have had for years. Published in 1990.





This was made to put on my dining table once we complete the top. Years ago, I wanted a dining table with ceramic tile as the top. We couldn't find what we wanted, so we bought a plain table and Justin added the tile. Remember seeing this on several of my yard sale posts?
 I started removing the tile.....

 ....and suffered a few cut fingers in the process!
Justin has stained the top, but I want a darker color. Once that is done and several coats of shellac added, I will post the finished project.

I adore the pineapple runner, it's gorgeous!!
I'm curious as to how you got all the white stuff off the table top after removing the tiles. Was it difficult?
I'm looking forward to seeing the finished project now, to see how it turned out.
