I decided to make a runner for my dining room table. As you remember, this is the fabric that I covered the lamps shades with…and I really love this fabric…..so I went back and bought 1/2 yard to make the runner….
then I thought I could look for a companion fabric to use on the backside….so it would be “reversible”…and I found this….
SO cute! LOVED this fabric too! So….I managed to sew a rectangular shape and fashion it into a runner! SHUT UP! I did not curse, not one time!! The sewing machine cooperated the entire 15 minutes it took to pull this off….no broken needles….no knotting of thread….it was miraculous!
Yes, that is Sadie jumping up in my shot!
pinecones on a tray with silver candlesticks and a pink ribbon….
I loved this fabric so much…..
That after I bought it on a Friday….and went back on Monday to get more to cover the seats on my dining room chairs, and guess what??? They had sold it ALL on Saturday!!! Guess what else?? It has been discontinued!!! Guess what I did??? Found it on e-bay!!! Yes I did!! 2 yards of this fabulousness is in transit to my casa even as we speak…..
I will keep you posted….
On another note, I found these ornamental cabbages at Lowes a few weeks ago and thought they were SO pretty! They look like roses…
I had never seen any like them, so I bought three and some pansies and planted them in a planter on my front porch….it looks so forlorn out there since the Christmas décor has come down…
On a very serious note….the State of Alabama suffered another round of tornadoes early this morning…..I awoke to the weather radio going off at about 4:30 a.m. then the warning sirens began…I can’t begin to tell you how un-nerved I am when we have severe weather, even more so since the devastation of last April, and the loss of my friend Tina and her husband in a tornado. The ones today also did major damage to several surrounding areas….Trussville was hit and it is only 45 minutes from my house…I was in Trussville Saturday shopping….there have been two confirmed casualties….please remember those who lost everything as well as loved ones in the blink of an eye…I cannot even imagine…
While I love my beautiful mountainous State of Alabama….I do NOT love the weather here…..we have had such a mild winter….which is the reason for the storms firing up….we are supposed to get another round on Thursday….Please keep those in the path in your prayers….
Thank you for stopping by….
